The goal of the rally is to move President Obama to take immediate action on climate. One of the most important decisions he can make is to reject the toxic Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Another is to tell the EPA to set carbon standards for power plants. This rally will show the president how large the climate movement has grown, and how urgent this issue truly is.
President Obama must move America forward on climate in 2013 with decisive action to reduce dangerous carbon pollution. His legacy as the 44th President of the United States of America rests on his leadership in the face of an unstable and uncertain climate future. Only the President of the United States has the power to lead an effort on the scale and with the urgency needed to phase out fossil fuels and fire up both energy efficiency and clean, renewable energy sources.
