Conservatives’ willful denial of the consensus of world scientists on global warming and climate change is irresponsible, criminal and crazy.

Atmospheric warming, caused by human emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases, threatens all of Nature, including humanity’s future. Conservatives say, “No problem!”

Melting polar ice, more extreme weather events, and rising seas are just the beginning of global warming’s ultimate impact on all of us.

We are living in the “Sixth Great Extinction” of species, this one caused by humanity’s disregard for the complex balance of Nature. Thousands of species are going extinct as humanity blindly despoils Earth, the only home we will ever know.

Millions of Americans were too disgusted with politics even to vote in 2016 … so we got a president and Congress committed to accelerating fossil fuel development, weakening environmental protections, cancelling the Clean Power Plan, threatening to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement.

The solutions needed are far simpler than landing on the moon, which humanity did 50 years ago. Only politics, greed, and willful ignorance threaten life on Earth.

Every elected official must be replaced in 2018 who is not committed to reversing global warming and climate change.
