For the Record: Fighting Climate Change is Patriotic



America, listen up! Climate Change will do more to destroy our country, and our way of life, than anything that bin Laden or Al Queda can even dream of doing!

The people who have been telling you that Global Warming is a "hoax" or a "liberal conspiracy" are lying to you!

“Many nations and businesses across the globe are moving to respond to climate change in innovative ways. How the United States participates in these efforts will profoundly affect our diplomatic standing, our economic potential, and our national security.”
--U.S. Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN)
We will pay for this [climate change impacts] one way or another. We will pay to reduce greenhouse gas emissions today, and we’ll have to take an economic hit of some kind. Or we will pay the price later in military terms…and that will involve human lives
—General Anthony C. Zinni


You may have missed the memo: We must fight climate change. The people who have your interest at heart, those that care more for what happens to us as people than whether they maintain political power, have come out and stated it very clearly. Climate Change is the single biggest threat to us all.

Take a look at The Pew Project on National Security, Energy and Climate to get a better understanding of why this is so important. Check out the Issues, read the News, and when you're ready to roll up your sleeves and do something about it, then take a look at the "What You Can Do" page from the Union of Concerned Scientists.
