  •  Personally I think these Whitehouse petitions (0+ / 0-)

    are rather limited in what they can achieve. The President full well knows the impact of global warming and he's decided for the here and now that little can be done about it.

    What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.

      Sorry, but I don't believe that the President really understands the immutability of climate change.

      When we put greenhouse gasses  in the atmosphere they are there basically forever in human lifespan terms.
      Further they encourage positive feedback to accelerate the damage.   It's like a train moving very fast - you can't stop it at the last minute.
      How many Hurricane Sandy's do we need ?

      If the president really understood what we are facing he would be doing something about it, now.

      Respectfully I suggest that you sign the petition,
      which, when 150 of us have done that will be visible to all and will generate more public discussion of climate change and what to do about it.
      Or do you expect Faux News to do something
      thanks
