Today, in a major address on climate change at Georgetown University, President Obama said what we’ve been waiting years to hear: “I refuse to condemn your generation and future generations to a planet that's beyond fixing.”
He went on to outline his plan to tackle the climate crisis. From calling out climate denier politicians, to increasing government support for renewable energy – even committing to consider the climate impacts of the Keystone XL Pipeline – this progress is unprecedented for his presidency.
And it happened because of Greenpeace supporters like you. You and millions of others in this movement refused to let corporate money and power silence your voices.
We proudly stand with the President in the fight against carbon pollution, but we know that this battle for our future won’t be won with words alone.
Industry lobbyists from Big Oil and King Coal will surely continue to fight the President tooth-and-nail to stop these solutions from being implemented. Even as you read this, oil companies like Shell are gearing up to drill in the Arctic and coal companies are mining publicly owned coal for pennies on the dollar.
It will be up to us to make sure the President does not allow these dangerous projects to move forward. But the good news is our efforts are paying off.
Thank you for everything that you have done to get us to this point. This is your moment, and the President is standing with you.
For the planet,
Greenpeace USA Executive Director
