Urge President Obama to commit the U.S. to at least a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
Why is this important?
As part of the 2014/2015 UN negotiating process for a new global climate treaty, governments are being asked to make ambitious commitments for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
We are calling on President Obama to commit the U.S. to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2030 using a benchmark of 2005. This scientifically feasible reduction is to be achieved by energy conservation and efficiency and renewable forms of energy.
