Boston Globe: Stop printing letters to the editor denying Climate Change

To be delivered to Peter S. Canellos, Editor of the Editorials Page

Petition Statement

We ask that you join the L.A. Times editorial board in no longer printing letters to the editor that state factual inaccuracies such as the claim that there is no conclusive evidence that man-made Climate Change exists.

Based on extensive scientific research conducted by the IPCC, every National Academy of Science worldwide and the U.S. Global Change Research Program, the time for debating settled science is over. It is time for the age of responsible debate and action over HOW we work to mitigate and solve this problem. We are asking the Boston Globe to be a leader in this new phase of tackling the greatest global issue of our time.
There are currently 19,690 signatures. NEW goal - We need 20,000 signatures!

Petition Background

I am a renewable energy entrepreneur and someone who wishes to leave an environment and climate that I have enjoyed my entire life to my children and their children's children.

I want this debate and the people of this country to have spirited discussion and solve problems based on factual evidence and not along ideological lines and talking points put forth by corporate players with short term economic interests at heart. It is time to move this topic forward, and since our politicians are unwilling or unable, we must again turn to the press to report more factual information and less unsupported opinion.
