About the Petition

At his inauguration and again in the State of the Union, President Obama told the nation that he's committed to leading the way in the climate fight -- he even cast fighting climate disruption as a moral obligation.

"If Congress won't act soon to protect future generations, I will. I will direct my Cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy."

- President Obama, February 12, 2013

Let's make sure he knows America is ready for him to lead the way in the climate fight.

To: President Barack Obama

Now is the time to take action on the climate crisis. As we've seen with record droughts, heat waves, temperature records shattered and the devastation from extreme weather events like Hurricane Sandy, the dangers of climate disruption are all too real for my family and millions of others.
 
Please lead the fight against climate change by directing your executive agencies -- including the EPA -- to enact a bold and comprehensive climate plan that includes cutting carbon pollution from power plants -- the country's single biggest source of this climate-disrupting pollution. Send a clear signal that you're serious and will finalize the first-ever industrial carbon limits for power plants as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
