More people power needed! Obama’s Clean Power Plan with a target to cut greenhouse gas pollution by 32 per cent by 2020 is being attacked from all sides but the crazy thing is – it is not enough!
Nicholas :Stern: is saying the plan will improve health, the U.S. economy, innovation, jobs and push ahead a global agreement on climate change. But the BigCoal and their conservative cronies are on the attack and you can bet Abbott and the LNP are on their side!
Scientists and commentators who do their homework are saying a 32% target is nowhere near enough!!! Read the Guardian’s overview: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/aug/04/obama-clean-power-plan-welcomed-but-wont-avoid-dangerous-warming
We must do much more according to The New York Times ahttp://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/02/us/obama-to-unveil-tougher-climate-plan-with-his-legacy-in-mind.html?_r=3
And the independent Climate Action Tracker website http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2015/03/31/u_s_climate_targets_in_advance_of_paris_agreement_the_obama_administration.html
The fight to arrest climate change is a big job ahead of all of us. We had better put our shoulder to the wheel however we can if the world is going to get it done. It’s up to us!
People power must win this one!
