Historic Petition Demands Obama 'Turn Off the Carbon Pollution Spigot'

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

Hundreds of groups filed what they called a "historic" petition to President Barack Obama on Tuesday, urging the administration to end all fossil fuel leases on federal lands.

More than 250 climate, community, and tribal organizations filed the legal petition to remind Obama of the commitments the U.S. made by signing the landmark Paris agreement calling on nations worldwide to keep global warming below 1.5°C.

Half the Problem is Them-those Fossil Fuel Companies & Obama- the Supply Side. And Half the Problem is Us- the Demand Side.
We need to the point the finger at them and us...... The problem and predicament is our Current Living Arrangement..... We are in for a Long Emergency.

Dumb. Start with getting out of your cars. Stop voting against legislation to expand public transportation. Our middle class are defined by car ownership, and the attitude that they have the right to drive as much as they wish. High gas prices and gas shortages destroy political careers.

An historic petition plus two bucks buys a cup of coffee.

Three bucks in the high rent districts where Obama and Clinton voters live.
