In last night's State of the Union address, President Obama urged Congress to take bold action to address climate change, while also strongly stating his willingness to take executive action.
“But if Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will. I will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.”
If the President wants to get serious about climate change, then the first step that he needs to take is to reject the Keystone XL pipeline.
Tens of thousands of concerned individuals will be converging in Washington, DC on Sunday February 17 to urge him to Move Forward on Climate. Join us at the rally in DC or get involved in a local solidarity rally in your community.
