Green: ’100 Days of Climate Action’

Earth Heating, America Hurting, Prompts ’100 Days of Climate Action’
WASHINGTON, DC, January 15, 2013 (ENS) – Evidence that the planet’s temperature is rising came flooding in this week, and in response environmental and public health groups have launched “100 Days of Climate Action,” from Inauguration Day to Earth Day

The Sierra Club, the National Wildlife Federation, Environment Colorado and many other groups plan to put pressure on President Barack Obama to provide a specific climate agenda for his second term.

Gretchen Alfonso, policy analyst for Clean Air Council and Pennsylvania organizer for Moms Clean Air Force, told reporters on a telebriefing today, “We will push President Obama to own this issue, and we will push for a climate champion as the next head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.”

“We will push for the mention of climate and clean air in both Inaugural Address and the State of the Union Address,” said Alfonso.

“We will be trying climate fools in the court of public opinion and planning climate-focused Earth Day events,” she said. read more>>>
