Green Politics: Obama Promises Climate Action

January 21st, 2013 | Posted by Claire Sommer in Green Government

President Obama promised Climate Change action.

Thank you, Mr. President.

We’re behind you.

Before the conversation speeds up any more, here are some links that I didn’t want to get lost in the shuffle:

*Why did climate change cap-and-trade legislation fail in 2010? Harvard Professor Theda Skocpol dishes out buckets of blame in this much-Tweeted Washington Post interview.

*On this same topic, Professor Skocpol’s 140-page report on this issue is a lengthy and worthwhile read.

*The Yale Project on Climate Change Communication offers thoughts on why a pro-climate position might offer political benefits.

*350.org, Sierra Club and the Hip Hop Caucus are organizing the Feb. 17 Forward on Climate rally in Washington, DC and other U.S. cities.

As President Obama said:

The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But American cannot resist this transition. We must lead it.
