The international climate negotiations in Paris are happening now, and it’s clear that world leaders are not going to reach an agreement sufficient to avert the climate crisis.
That’s no surprise. How can they, when President Obama – the leader of the country most responsible for the problem – has only committed the U.S. to do 1/5 of our fair share?
On December 11, the international climate summit in Paris will come to a close. And on December 12, we must take to the streets to respond. We’re counting on you to make that happen.
Join us at the White House on December 12!
What: Rally to define President Obama’s climate legacy
When: Saturday, December 12 at 11:00 am
Where: The White House (Next to Lafayette Park on the 1600 block of Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington DC 20500)
We need your help to hold President Obama accountable for an unjust and scientifically flawed climate agreement! Paris provides us with an opportunity to show that Americans demand better! This is our chance to make it clear that we’re angry about President Obama’s failure of climate leadership -- and we need to do it loudly.
We know this can work. By taking to the streets, activists like you stopped the Keystone XL pipeline. Now we need take to the streets again to demand that the U.S. do it fair share on climate change. We need to accept nothing less than drastic emissions reductions and international climate finance. This fight is too important for us to lose.
Not everyone has the courage to stand up and demand the climate leadership we need. In fact, only a few of us will at first. That’s why you are so important – and why we need your activism.
Help build the bold climate movement we need. Join us on December 12!
