We Are Losing the Planet

Friend:

I’m going to be blunt: People are dying because of climate change. Our families, our communities and our planet are all threatened by it.  It is time for President Obama to lead us through the greatest environmental challenge of our generation.

“Climate change is not a hoax. More drought and floods and hurricanes and wildfires are not a joke. They’re a threat to our children’s future. And we can do something about it.”

These are the words of President Obama, and we couldn’t agree more. Now we need your help to ask him to use his existing authority under the Clean Air Act to set tough standards to control carbon pollution from new and existing power plants.  Yes, the President has the power by himself to limit this killer pollution.

With climate change, we face deadly heat waves, droughts and killer storms like Hurricane Sandy. The health of our kids and seniors is threatened by lung damaging and asthma-attack inducing smog made worse by a warming planet.  

Tell the President that saving the world is a legacy worth fighting for.

The world has known about climate change for decades, yet little has been done to address the issue. President Obama has the power to make the world a safer place for our children to live and breathe.  President Obama has the power to lead the rest of the world through this challenge.

If President Obama doesn’t do it, it won’t get done. If the United States doesn’t lead, the rest of the world cannot follow.
