President Obama has key decisions he can make right now to determine whether or not the U.S. is locked into a climate death spiral or has a plausible way out. Letting climate-killing projects move forward including the Keystone pipeline, Arctic drilling, coal exports, and other fossil fuel-based projects in his “all of the above” energy strategy would be a clear betrayal of our children and future generations.  We can’t let that happen, and we must let Obama know he will be held accountable.

The climate crisis has forged a new, diverse coalition of Americans who have seen the effects of our fossil fuel dependency and want no future with it.

When our nation's leaders see the thousands of people gathering in D.C. and in solidarity rallies across the country, they’ll know we’re serious about our demands for an energy revolution.
