Fighting global warming, ending our dependence on oil, and protecting public health. Fighting global warming, ending our dependence on oil, and protecting public health. Scientific consensus in the international community recognizes the very real threat of a changing climate due to greenhouse gas emissions. Our pattern of fossil fuel consumption is not sustainable. Unchecked, global warming will lead to increased heat-related illness and death, more intense droughts, famine, floods and storms, increased pest and water borne diseases, increased respiratory and cardiovascular disease as a result of worsening air quality, and displace hundreds of thousands from their homes. We call on our elected officials to immediately implement mandatory national global warming emission reductions, utilizing the most efficient and cost effective means, to achieve greenhouse gas reductions in order to protect the health of the American people and our neighbors across the world.
