There are two Whitehouse petitions on climate change that deserve your attention.
It should be a priority for us to get these petitions signed by 150 people so that they can both be seen by everyone, launching them on their way to the 25,000 signatures needed to have POTUS say something.
Both petitions are half way to the public launch point - your help is urgently needed
Surely now that the Deathstar has been retired you can help with this.
More and more of us are seeing the changes around us - the unusually warm summers and winters - the ever more violent powerful storms - the vast dying of pine trees in the Rockies - the drought in Texas
We watched in horror as images of the terrible fires in Australia were posted here.
2012 was the hottest year ever.....
Climate change is like an espress train racing towards us.
We are on the tracks and cannot get out of the way.
All we can do is slow the train a little and hope the collision is lessened
We are running out of time to avoid the worst effects of climate change.
Continued release of CO2 will activate irreversible positive feedback loops
- release of methane from permafrost thaw
- release of methane trapped in coastal waters as they warm
Once initiated we will not be able to stop them....
.....the topical rainforests and their incredible biodiversity will burn
........(Look again at the photos from Australia.)
.....the ice in Greenland and in Antarctica will melt.... ocean waters will rise..
.....NYC, Florida, Bangladesh, the Netherlands and many more will be flooded
Continued use of fossil fuels is Ecocide
We need to deploy renewable energy sources as a national emergency priority
We need to phase out our use of carbon based fuels ASAP
We need to do this to give our children a chance
Please look at both of these petitions.
Both deserve your signature.
Please sign these petitions
