About the Petition
Organizations like the Environmental Defense Fund have been warning for years that global warming will lead to more extreme weather events. Hurricane Sandy was just the most recent example: in the past year, we’ve seen a devastating drought in the Midwest, widespread flooding in the Philippines, and massive blizzards throughout Europe.
The President has made some progress in the fight to stop climate change, notably supporting clean energy alternatives. But prominent environmental groups believe this needs to be a priority for his second term.
This means continuing to promote clean energy, preventing deforestation, getting serious about a carbon tax, and becoming a global climate change leader. Organizations like the Environmental Defense Fund are encouraging the president to make climate change a priority over the next four years. Add your name if you support their work.
