Defend Climate Science Against Distortion

To be delivered to Bob Pittman, Chief Executive Officer at Clear Channel Communications and Julie Talbott, President, Content & Affiliate Relations at Premiere Networks

Petition Statement

Alarms are sounding across the board over climate change. 97% of climate experts are now convinced that global temperatures are increasing. Unchecked, the impacts could be disastrous.

When smoke detectors sound in a crowded theater, wrongfully shouting “false alarm” would be unthinkable. Yet as the theater fills with smoke, Rush Limbaugh is telling Americans that the alarms are false. Global warming, he says again and again on his Premiere Networks show, is a hoax.

We, the undersigned, condemn his distortion of climate science as morally reprehensible and we call on you to repudiate it. We call on Clear Channel Communications, its subsidiary Premiere Networks, all affiliated radio stations and program sponsors to stop promoting dangerous misinformation and to end association with the Rush Limbaugh show.
There are currently 148 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

Climate change has been described as a "critical concern" by Ronald Reagan, "destructive" by George Schultz, and "menacing" by Margaret Thatcher. John McCain has spoken of "all the endless trouble that global warming will bring," and warned that "time is short and the dangers are great."

Yet Rush Limbaugh recklessly twists the truth and dismisses climate science as a leftist conspiracy. We owe it to all those who suffer the consequences now and in the future to condemn Mr. Limbaugh's distortions in the strongest possible terms.
