Our increasingly warm, weird, wild weather is a sign of trouble ahead. With 98 percent of peer-reviewed scientists saying that we need to make a rapid transition away from fossil fuels in order to preserve a livable future for ourselves and our children, it's beyond the time when President Obama should be a leader and speak up about climate change!
Hurricane Sandy is just the beginning of what climate change will bring! We need a "State of the Climate" address from President Obama, the leader of the free world, to clear up American confusion on this issue. Our need to fight rapid, man-made climate change is not a liberal "issue," any more than respecting the law of gravity is a liberal issue.
In addition to signing this petition, please call the White House Comment Line, 9-5 Eastern Standard Time, M-F, at 202-456-1111. Tell President Obama's volunteer operators that you want the President to act now to prevent further worsening of climate change. If you'd rather send a written note to Obama (24x7), go to www.whitehouse.gov and click on the "Contact Us' button in the upper right corner of the page to open a comment page for your written comment. Again, ask for action on climate, including a "State of the Climate" address.
P.S. Please tell your friends to do this too!!
