Women's group points to Kansas as future leader in the battle against climate change
Mothers Out Front fights for clean energy to insure a healthy future for children.
The high winds and dry conditions that drove massive wildfires across Kansas in December are worsening as the climate changes.
According to Mothers Out Front, a national nonprofit looking to secure livable conditions for future generations, combating the climate crisis could come through the strategic placement of renewable energy farms in Kansas.
Kansas' prairies have deep root systems able to sequester carbon. That, along with the state's abundance of sun and wind, make it uniquely positioned to become a leader in green energy production, according to Susan Alig, a leader with the organization's Kansas City chapter.
