SOS President Obama: Take Action on Climate Change NOW!

    1. Petition by

      Kids vs Global Warming

My name is Rachel Frizell, I am 14 years old, and I live in New York City. My school and neighborhood were flooded during Hurricane Sandy, and we went without electricity for many days. It will be a long time before my city recovers.

I am Nelson Kanuk. I am 17 years old and I live in Kipnuk, Alaska. My family, and most of my village, will soon need to move off of our land because the permafrost is melting so quickly. Water from the bay frequently reaches our front door.

My name is Jaime Lynn Butler, I am 12 years old, and I used to live in Cameron, Arizona before the heat and drought dried up our water. We had to transport water for my horse, Charlie, and wound up having to sell him. I live in Flagstaff now, but I miss my community.

The scary part is, these are not just freak storms or an isolated events. This is the new normal. We are just a few of the millions of kids in America whose lives are already impacted by the climate crisis. And it is only going to get worse if we don't join together to solve it. That's why we are calling on our President to take a stand for our generation, and lead a National Climate Summit to highlight solutions to make our communities safer from climate change.

We know that climate change is a real threat to our communities, our homes, our families, and our lives. Addressing the climate crisis needs to be a priority for our nation. Please join us in pressuring President Obama to stand by his word to hold a national conversation on climate change by leading a National Climate Summit and commit to solutions for a sustainable future.

On behalf of the youngest generation,

Rachel, Nelson, and Jaime

      My kids matter. We burn fossil fuels for fun and profit wrecking their chance at a livable future, instead of solving the crisis we are passing on to them.
