Obama has said these words, but has not even been in discussion with the agencies that matter. He signed legislation to reduce carbon emissions by 2025- this is too little too late. More support has to come from this administration.

You may be interested in this email I got from The White House/President Obama on 6th December in response to signing a petition on climate change-


Dear Friend:

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. I have heard from many Americans concerned about environmental issues—from pollution control and clean energy to the well-being of our national parks and wildlife. America’s natural resources and landscapes are among our Nation’s most precious treasures, and we have an obligation to protect them for future generations.



That is why my Administration is taking action to preserve and restore our land, water, and air. Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, I increased funding for hazardous waste cleanup, wastewater and drinking water infrastructure construction, and projects that improve our Nation’s parks and wildlife refuges. I also signed the Omnibus Public Land Management Act—the most extensive expansion of land and water conservation in more than a generation.



To further safeguard our natural heritage and historic landmarks, I was proud to launch the America’s Great Outdoors initiative. Building on input from tens of thousands of people across our country, my Administration is joining with communities, landowners, sportsmen, businesses, and partners at every level of government to reconnect Americans with the natural world and lay the foundation for a more sustainable planet.



We have taken important steps to reduce the harmful emissions that contribute to climate change and pollute our water and air. We are reducing harmful air emissions through clean energy technology, energy efficiency measures for our buildings and appliances, and achievable pollution standards that are reducing toxic pollutants and saving lives. As part of this effort, we set the first-ever national limits for mercury and other toxins from power plants, which will prevent up to 11,000 premature deaths, 4,700 heart attacks, and 130,000 cases of childhood asthma symptoms each year.



We also developed historic fuel economy standards that will double the fuel efficiency of cars and light trucks by 2025, saving consumers $1.7 trillion at the pump while also substantially reducing carbon pollution and oil consumption. We have also established the first-ever national fuel economy and greenhouse gas emission standards for commercial trucks, vans, and buses built in 2014-2018.



My Administration has made the largest clean energy investments in American history. As a result, we have helped the United States nearly double our renewable energy production from sources like wind and solar since I took office—employing thousands of Americans in the process—and supporting American innovation and manufacturing. In addition, I have repeatedly called on Congress to eliminate the wasteful tax breaks for the oil and gas industry, which would save American taxpayers $4 billion per year.



We all share the responsibility to help protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land that supports and sustains us, and my Administration remains committed to tackling these and other tough environmental problems. I encourage you to learn more about our efforts at www.WhiteHouse.gov/energy/our-environment. You can also read about the America’s Great Outdoors initiative at AmericasGreatOutdoors.gov.



Thank you, again, for writing.


Sincerely,

Barack Obama
