Target: President Barack Obama
Goal: Applaud Obama’s call to double clean energy research funding in order to fight climate change.
Thanks in part to petitions like ForceChange’s Tell President Obama to Support Clean Energy, 20 nations will double research into clean energy over the next five years as announced by President Barack Obama and other international leaders at the recent Paris climate summit.
In support of the announcement, a coalition of industrialists said they will work to help mainstream “zero-emissions” power. The goal of the summit is to create an international agreement to support clean energy and limit greenhouse gases, while holding all involved across the globe accountable.
Recent reports found that funding for clean energy was at an embarrassing low, so this announcement and commitment to clean energy is vital to fighting climate change. It’s time that global leaders take real action to protect the environment and invest in technology that promotes clean energy.
Applaud Obama’s commitment to clean energy research and this positive step towards protecting our world.
Dear President Obama,
I am writing to applaud your recent announcement to double research into clean energy over the next five years. This funding is vital to find ways to protect the world and come up with an action plan to fight climate change.
Spending on this vital funding has been a complete joke in the past and we cannot allow that to continue in the future. I hope that you will hold other leaders accountable for their share of protecting our world and that you will continue to encourage clean energy research worldwide.
[Your Name Here]
