This weekend, I gathered with folks from across the country for the largest rally on climate change in U.S. history! The Forward on Climate Rally took place on the National Mall in Washington, DC, and aimed to let the Obama Administration know that there exists strong public support for climate change action.
The League is thrilled that climate change is finally getting the attention it deserves. In recent weeks, we’ve heard promising statements from President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry on the urgent need to take action on this life-threatening issue. These statements are a good first step, but to fix the problems caused by climate change, we need action!
Climate change is a global catastrophe on a historic scale that will change the course of human life. Luckily, there are ways to help prevent climate change and protect our planet. The League calls on the Obama Administration to use its regulatory powers to place controls on new and existing power plants, the single biggest source of carbon pollution in the U.S. The League hopes this message was made loud and clear when we rallied near the White House over the weekend.
But you don’t have to be in DC to make your voice heard! Tell the President that saving the world is a legacy worth fighting for.
