I have a comment about our future. Today, atmospheric CO2 has reached 400 ppm for the first time in 800,000 years. That is not something to celebrate. If we do not change course dramatically, life as we know it will be a thing of the past. Please, Mr. President, for the sake of our children, stand up to the non-renewable energy lobby and put an end to this senseless greedy destruction. No Keystone XL – or any other tar sand crap. No deep water drilling.
It is time to stop ignoring the facts: Climate disruption is happening. The only way to lessen it is by reversing course. Solutions are out there. It’s time to act and implement them.
As the President, I expect you to take a leadership role in saving humanity from its self-destruction.
