The Environment is about Kindness and Love and all the ways we relate to each other as individuals, communities, political parties, governments, and nations.
Before his death in 2006, I visited Lynton K Caldwell, an American political scientist, and professor at Indiana University, a visionary, he was the architect of the 1969 National Environmental Policy Act.

This is the perspective I will bring to Congress.
