It's all over the news: According to a report released today by the Obama administration, global warming is "unequivocal and human-induced." And while we certainly applaud the return of science to the White House, listening to the science is only half of the solution. He has to act on it.
Solving global warming is going to take serious leadership from President Obama. It's up to us to demand it.
What the science says we need to do is keep global temperature increases as far below two degrees as possible, achieve emissions reductions of at least 25% below 1990 levels by 2020, eliminate offsets that undermine reductions and to provide substantial international funding necessary to stop emissions from deforestation. Bottom line.
Today's report is a clarion call that the President and Congress must do much more, and more quickly, to respond to the climate crisis. Time is running out. Take a minute to add your name to the list of people demanding that President Obama follow his own science and be a leader.
