Mitt Romney has been playing politics with the planet, and we've had enough. Now it's time to make sure he gets the message.
This summer we issued Romney a challenge to clearly articulate his plan for addressing the most urgent issue facing humanity. Tens of thousands of people signed on. On September 28—five days before the first Presidential debate in Denver—we're going to hold a rally and action to deliver our challenge to Romney's campaign headquarters. Will you join us?
We'll bring the boat and the boxes of signatures. You bring your signs, your voices, and your friends.
Romney does have an energy plan. But in its 21 pages are promises to the fossil fuel industry for nearly everything on its wish list--more fracking, more oil drilling, and more freedom to pollute. What the plan doesn’t have is a single mention of climate change. He jokes about the "rise of the oceans." He calls cap and trade, a Republican idea, a “radical feel-good” policy that would have “devastating results for people across the planet.” He has said that on Day 1 of his administration he would approve the Keystone XL pipeline, which would bring 900,000 barrels of the world’s dirtiest oil, tar sands crude from Canada, down through the US for export.
