With or Without Obama, Climate Change Activists Ready to FightJon Queallybyline‚ Jan. 09‚ 2013
Over 70 leaders from environmental justice groups sign open letter to president demanding action on climate change
As President Obama readies for his second term, environmentalists, climate change activists, and advocates for public health are not waiting to make their message to him loud and clear.
And in the end, they say—though they'd love his support—they will not wait for Obama as they take on the fossil fuel industry and its defenders directly.
In an open letter this week, more than 70 leaders representing groups with millions of members across the country told Obama that he must stand up boldly to address what they called the "great challenge of our time": climate change caused by runaway carbon emissions.
