Climate change isn't a problem of tomorrow - it's affecting us today! Extreme weather events like Hurricane Sandy will become more and more frequent if we continue to produce carbon dioxide at this rate

If 1 person exchanges eating meat / animal products for a vegan diet, they'll reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1.5 tons per year.
If every American dropped one serving of chicken per week from their diet, it would save the same amount of CO2 emissions as taking 500,000 cars off the road.
Chickens, turkeys, pigs and cows are collectively the largest producer of methane in the U.S.
Methane is 20x more powerful at trapping heat in the Earth's atmosphere than carbon dioxide.
The meat, egg, and dairy industries produce 65% of worldwide nitrous oxide emissions.
Nitrous Oxide is 300x more powerful at trapping heat in the Earth's atmosphere than carbon dioxide.
1 calorie from animal protein requires 11x as much fossil fuel as 1 calorie of plant protein.
The diets of meat eaters create 7x the greenhouse emissions as the diet of vegans.
Nearly half of all water used in the U.S. goes to raising animals for human food.
It takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of meat.
1 pound of wheat takes 25 gallons.
You'd save more water by not eating one lb of meat than you would by not taking a shower for 6 months.
A vegan diet requires 300 gallons of water per day vs. meat-eating diet which requires 4,000 gallons per day.
Animals raised for food create 89,000 lbs of excrement per second, none of which benefits from the waste-treatment facilities human excrement does.
Chicken, Hog, and Cattle excrement has polluted 35,000 miles of rivers in 22 states.
Raising animals for human food uses 30% of the Earth's land mass. That's about the same size as Asia! The moon has less area than that, at 14.6 million sq miles.
More than 260 million acres of U.S. forest have been cleared to create cropland to grow grain to feed farmed animals. Corn destroys to intestines and stomachs of steers and cows. GMOs and pesticides, whether sprayed or systemic, are destroy bees/pollinators, soil, air, human and animal health, and corrupt organic crops.
The equivalent of 7 football fields of land are bulldozed every minute to create room for farmed animals.
Livestock grazing is the number one cause of plant species becoming threatened or going extinct in the U.S.
70% of grain and cereals grown in the U.S. are fed to farmed animals. 90% of corn is.
Animals eat large quantities of grain, soybeans, oats, and corn; however, they only produce a comparatively small amount of meat, dairy products, or eggs in return.
It requires 16 lbs of grain to produce 1 lb of meat.
5 lbs of wild-caught fish to produce 1 pound of farmed fish.
Acidification of the oceans, coral reef death, dead zones are due to animal waste and "cides" from the GMO crops.

It is more up to each of us as individuals to reduce our own carbon footprints and tread on Earth Mother as softly as we can, leaving her after having made improvements instead of taking away from her and her abilities to sustain future life. Too many people consume far too much, especially "food". The prcessed "foods" need to be removed entirely from one's life. Then, the use of ANIMALS as "Food" is not only forbidden by all spiritual masters from Plato to Pythagorus, Moses to John the Baptist to Jesus, Nanak to Yogi Bhajan, Buddha to Krihsna to Tao, et al (in every generation, masters initiate vegetarians whose inner eye and ear is ready to be connected to the LOGOS) but it is DESTROYING EVERY LIFE-GIVING aspect of THIS ENTIRE PLANET! We need to revere Earth Mother and NEVER remove the freedoms of living beings from them, and especially never destroy their lives and torture, confine, harm or Kill them. Eating animals is the very most diabolically, collectively bad karmic evil we can possibly participate in while we occupy the otherwise promising human body.

It is hard to understand how there is still doubt & hesitation around climate change and the need to mitigate it!
We have the seasons yoyoing through the year, extreme climatic events more and more often ... Individually, they may not be new - but so often? Definitely time to start acting seriously

1. He doesn't care
2.. He never responds to these things
3. He's a political not an environmental animal and now a dead horse
4. The Obamas are in hawaii costing us more money in a time of crisis.

You folks that wanted this guy can plead the case until blue in the face.
