Tell Trump To #ActOnClimate
This petition had 154,485 supporters
President-elect Trump has called climate change a Chinese hoax, vowed to dismantle America's climate and clean energy policies, and appointed climate deniers with ties to the fossil fuel industry to his transition team and Cabinet.
There is too much at stake for us to stay silent. Human-caused climate change threatens America’s economy, national security, and public health and safety. That's why we and over 800 of our colleagues, all of whom work on climate, energy, or Earth science, have written an open letter (read here) urging Donald Trump to take 6 key steps to address climate change:
1) Make America a clean energy leader.
2) Reduce carbon pollution and America's dependence on fossil fuels.
3) Enhance America's climate preparedness and resilience.
4) Publicly acknowledge that climate change is a real, human-caused, and urgent threat.
5) Protect scientific integrity in policymaking.
6) Uphold America's commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement.
