President Bush has shown throughout his Presidency little inclination to address looming climate change, yet the science is clear, and the Earth cannot wait for new U.S. leadership

Additional Background

President Bush has shown throughout his Presidency little inclination to address looming climate change. And he continues to incorrectly insist there is uncertainty regarding whether global warming is human caused - largely through burning of fossil fuels. Nonetheless, with perhaps only a decade left to fully implement in earnest the policies necessary to avert abrupt, run-away and potentially deadly climate change; his administration remains the greatest obstacle to a coordinated international policy response.

The extent and rapidity of global warming is now so severe that we simply cannot wait for over two and a half years for new American leadership. In order to maximize the likelihood of humanity having adequate time to confront the global warming emergency, all enlightened global citizens simply must confront President Bush and seek to break through his oilman's denial.

Whatever your opinion personally, or in regard to his policies, please let President Bush know the science is clear - and that he must urgently embrace and promote mandatory emission cuts, renewable energy, energy conservation and efficiency, and an end to deforestation. Failure to lead will result in rising temperatures, droughts and floods, melting ice, rising seas, more destructive storms, agricultural failure, vegetation loss and ultimately widespread ecosystem collapse.

This independent alert is timed to coincide with the release of "An Inconvenient Truth", which documents another climate crusader's journey. Please see Al Gore's movie and send, and widely forward, this alert.
