Petition Background

Since facts matter we should get them straight. First, the world's climate has been altered by humans and 97% of scientific studies back that up. Second, coal is more expensive than solar (which is the cheapest energy source on the planet) and wind power, and it will die on its own even without solar and wind. Third, more people are employed in clean energy than the coal industry by a wide margin. Fourth, since clean energy is becoming more and more accessible and inexpensive, we don't need to depend so much on fossil fuels for our energy.

Another fact that gets buried in all the "fake news" reporting about climate is that there is only limited amount of fossil fuels and even if we could dig them all up, someday we will run out.

Do not follow Mr. Trump into this abyss of thoughtlessness and instead listening to the facts.

I am concerned for our planet's and our children's future. There are more extreme weather events throughout the world and that is due to the increase in the earth's temperature. The desert areas of the world are expanding and soon the people living in those areas will move where the water is putting more and more of a strain on the water supplies in those areas. I could go on and on but I think this gets the point across.
