In the First Person:

I live in Montana—I see people who have spent their lives trying to get here to see the beauty. I just have to look out my door to see what can be lost if we don't act.

As a nurse, I see everyday how clean air is key to our public health, our country's health and our world's health. Being a part of 50 States United for Healthy Air, and having the great honor to speak up for the nurses in my state, gives me an opportunity to be part of a collective group working to have an impact on an uncaring legislature and participate in our democratic process in a meaningful way.

I live in Montana—I see people who have spent their lives trying to get here to see the beauty. I just have to look out my door to see what can be lost if we don't act. Our state has too much at stake if we don't reverse global warming. Glacier National Park will soon have to be just "National Park". This is why when I come, I will ask Congress and the Administration to remove the "Halliburton exemption," require the capping of the flames used to release gases into the atmosphere, and let the EPA create sensible rules for natural gas extraction. It is worth the cost.
