‘It’s called global warming, not California warming. Why is it our responsibility to save the world?” Katcho Achadjian asked in a recent Tribune article (“Assembly candidates’ differences abound,” Oct. 5).

Katcho, If you can’t see the connection between your so-called priorities — “drought, jobs and the economy” — and the impacts of “California warming,” then you are a fool!

Our entire agricultural economy and rural way of life are at stake if this drought continues. Increasing California temperatures from ever-increasing carbon emissions will only ensure this drought stays longer and comes back more often.

Congratulations on your landmark Paso Robles water district legislation. Unfortunately, it amounts to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic if we do not address “California warming,” the underlying cause of this ongoing extreme drought. Addressing “California warming” is absolutely mandatory to securing jobs and economic vitality for our region.

It’s time to stop surrounding yourself with climate deniers and find yourself some science advisers.

Get your priorities straight!

Voters: You deserve a leader with her priorities straight — vote for Heidi Harmon.
