Press The President Urges Writers To Speak Out About Legislators' Lack Of Debate About Climate Change Silence in Washington, D.C. as Extreme Weather Hits Sochi, California, and the Eastern US
WASHINGTON, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Press the President is an online blog calling for writers and videos from Americans to weigh in on climate change. Are we all numb to the climate change debate so our leaders don't care either? What do you to say to President Barack Obama to spark a new debate? This winter's end could not come soon enough for the Eastern United States as storms have amassed vast amounts of ice, sleet and snow shutting down entire cities and highways, closing schools and businesses. Meanwhile, California is experiencing one of its most severe droughts in over 100 years, causing President Barack Obama to fly there for an inspection. American athletes are competing in warmer conditions than expected for outdoor events in Sochi.
"We are witnessing climate change's frightening pattern mapping the United States," says the Founder of Press the President. "The weather extremes have crippled the local and regional economies, impeding productivity of many industries and workers. Despite the efforts by governments to control carbon emissions in the US and elsewhere around the world, we have to ask if they are doing enough."
