Candidates: Stand Up for Us!

    1. Petition by

      Kids vs Global Warming

The youngest generation knows their futures are at risk if we do nothing to curb emissions and protect the atmosphere.  And yet candidates continue to avoid the issue.  The climate movement is collecting signatures and pressuring Jim Lehrer to include a climate change question.  Mr. Lehrer needs to receive a request from the youth themselves... and those who care about their future.  

We want the candidates to directly answer the youngest generation, and their own children, "What will you do as President to protect the atmosphere for my future?"

Please join us. If you are under 18, please include that in your signature comments. Submit a question, too, if you want to word it differently...we will send in all of them.

Thank you, the iMatter folks

      We need to take this issue more seriously because it will and already is making an impact. What we do to Mother Earth, we do to ourselves. The youngest generation will be most impacted if this issue continues to be ignored. This is the opportunity for key responses to a key issue.

      This is very important. We need to know if politicians are responsible to all their constituents.
