Put Climate Change in the SOTU!

A close read of past State of the Union addresses found that President Obama mentions climate change far less than President Bill Clinton ever did, and less even than President George W. Bush.

In his first State of the Union, President Obama spoke of the work needed to"save our planet from the ravages of climate change". Every year since then, his tone has gotten weaker and weaker. And in last year's State of the Union address, President Obama made no mention of climate change at all! Nothing, nada, zilch!

If we stick with business-as-usual on climate change, the danger to our future prosperity will grow. Demand President Obama be a leader on this issue!

The speech is only a few short days away. So sign the petition now!

      This is an important issue that people seem to be even more willingly ignorant about over time.

      So incredibly disappointed in Pres. Obama's failure to walk his talk - environment, civil rights... you name it!!

      This is a no brainer. Obama is likewise pissing me off ... no real "change" or "hope" in sight.

      We need a real & committed leader!

      I'm still mad President Obama didn't even talk about climate change last year.
