Target: President Barack Obama
Goal: Applaud budget proposal to invest billions in climate change.
The White House is fighting climate change on several fronts with billions of dollars in a new budget proposal. The new budget will be invested in tax credits for alternative energy sources, preparation for natural disasters, renewable energy research, and more. This is a very positive focus for Obama’s last two years in office, and we would like to thank him for the decision to dedicate a big portion of the budget to fighting climate change, which is one of the most pressing issues of our time.
Although some still insist that climate change is not real, scientists keep warning us about the hazardous impact that our use and abuse of nature can have on the planet and its inhabitants. Solving this problem requires us to think ahead, find alternative energy sources, and encourage the use of those resources both with individuals and in big industries.
Obama’s proposed budget includes using $7.4 billion to stimulating the development of clean and renewable energy, almost a $1 billion increase from the current budget. It also includes dedicating $1.29 billion to the White House’s Global Climate Change Initiative, which will address these issues from an international angle.
Since climate change is still a controversial topic, Obama’s plan is expected to face some challenges and critiques. This is why it’s extremely important for citizens to voice their support and to make it clear that fighting climate change is a top priority. Please join us in supporting Obama’s plan and encouraging him to keep climate change as a main focus in his last couple of years as president.
Dear Mr. President,
Your new budget proposal includes billions of dollars to be invested in fighting climate change. Although some people in the government unfortunately don’t believe the clear scientific evidence about global warming and other climate change risks, it is crucial that you insist on making this issue a top priority. With only two years left in office, making some long-term investments in renewable energy and other potential solutions to climate change could be a truly positive legacy for your time as president.
I want to thank you for dedicating a lot of money to plan for the future and for developing energy sources that are not destructive to the earth and its inhabitants, including humans. I want to encourage you to keep focusing on this important issue even when some people criticize it. Without a safe planet nothing else would matter, so we have to keep insisting on addressing these problems with the urgency they deserve.
