Did you hear about Jimmy Carter’s takedown of the Koch brothers? If not, get ready to feel very proud of the U.S.’ 39th president…

Last week, President Carter became the first U.S. president to publicly voice opposition to Keystone XL, a decision that our own State Department just punted — again. Then, on Wednesday, President Carter came out swinging at big money in politics, climate change misinformation campaigns, and the kings of climate denial: the Koch brothers.
While the dark money behind climate denial is well documented, few politicians are willing to stick their necks out and hold misinformers like the Kochs accountable. Now we’ve got the opportunity to point to President Jimmy Carter — a living portrait of the leadership we need on climate — and embolden other progressive leaders to follow suit.

While speaking at a university in Paris this week, President Carter expressed his disgust with campaigns that set out to spread false information on climate change and deceive the public. He alluded to misinformation from a range of front groups, such as the Heartland Institute and Americans for Prosperity — but it was the Koch brothers who got an extra-specific takedown, courtesy of the 39th president of the United States.

We have very few examples of world leaders who not only call for climate action, but also take our most powerful private interests to task for misleading and hurting real people. Let’s lift up the example of President Carter and encourage similar leadership.

N and S, with a comment for him...however, a reading of Howard Zinn's "A People's History of the United States," will show you haw much Carter did for the Plutocracy, as have all our presidents, when he was in office.
Still it is nice that he's done this. Of course, the power industry a=can not fund a political campaign to keep him from office, now.

Thank you for signing our petition to thank President Carter! I always like Jimmy Carter, he had a lot going against him and I know he had his faults as well. I recall him getting out of his car to walk down the parade route and placing solar panels on the White House that Ronald Reagan promptly had removed when he became President. To me the symbolism spoke many words as to the differences of these men.

Carter's administration may have left something to be desired, but his work since leaving the Oval Office has been admirable.

I like Jimmy Carter, I like his honesty and personal integrity. It's a rare find in a politician, he has carved out a new way for past presidents to use their role as leaders, that certainly deserves admiration. Sign.

Sometimes the "right" thing and the "popular" thing are not the same. I'm grateful that President Carter had the courage to do the right thing --in spite of all the criticism he undoubtedly was subjected to because of it.

Signed and noted.

Jimmy Carter was elected president when I was a senior in high school and I have long admired him. He was far ahead of his time where energy conservation is concerned. He created a cabinet-level Department of Energy and established a national energy policy that included conservation, price control, and new technology. He even installed solar panels on the White House which his successor (Saint Reagan) promptly removed. We should have listened to Jimmy.

When role-models seem to be required to embolden others to speak out and, in this case stand for protecting the world from the ravages of climate change, we need to thank those who speak and encourage others to follow. Kudos to Carter, who's next? Step up to the plate dear politicians, be brave! What you loose from the nay-sayers and climate-change skeptics, you'll gain from the climate scientists and people concerned for our future.

Signed & noted of course, thanks Angelika for posting.
