Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA)

Global warming and the pollution and burning of fossil fuels that cause it are threats we see here in California and everywhere around the world. These pollutants blanket the globe, trapping heat and creating the “greenhouse” effect – the warming of the earth’s atmosphere. All of this impacts California’s water supply, public health, agriculture, coastlines, forestry, and much more....

Global warming is real, and it is happening now. The overwhelming scientific consensus is that global warming poses a serious danger to everyone, including the citizens of Illinois. In this state, global warming, left unchecked over time, could cause serious harm to public health and the economy by lowering lake levels, increasing heat-related deaths, and causing more frequent flooding. ...

R. James Woolsey
former Dir., CIA

Should you doubt that global warming is as serious as the overwhelming weight of scientific opinion indicates, think of reducing GWG (global warming gases) as buying insurance -- just as you pay to insure your house against fire even though you may discount the risk.  And the rather modest premium we will pay to make a transition to energy systems that reduce GWG serves other goals as well.  For example, moving toward fuel-efficient vehicles such as hybrids and plug-in hybrids (visit www.calcars.org) and to alternative fuels such as cellulosic ethanol and biodiesel made from agricultural and other wastes (visit www.energycommission.org) will also contribute to prosperity for rural America, reduce developing countries’ debt burden, often substantially caused by oil imports, and help break the sword of oil dependence held over us by tyrants and terrorist threats in the oil-rich Middle East.  Whether you are committed to one of these objectives or (like me) to all of them, you can do a lot for the world by helping build a coalition for reducing GWG that includes tree-huggers, do-gooders, sod-busters, and cheap hawks....

I've been working to stop global warming since 1988, when I wrote The End of Nature. It drives me crazy to see so much of this planet's life so casually endangered. The first steps are so easy (drive smaller cars, for instance) that it's very hard to understand why we haven't taken them. But I know that this is the issue our generation will be judged by. When historians look back in a century or two, the most important thing about our time won't be the Internet or the booming stock market or any of the other things we concentrate so much attention on. Rather, it will be that these were the years that temperature began to spike sharply up--that the earth's climate, stable on a global level throughout our civilization, began very suddenly to shift. This issue is as morally urgent as the civil rights movement was to our parent's generation, and we must address it now....

Pete McCloskey, (R-CA)
Former Member of Congress 1967-1983

If we learned tomorrow an asteroid was heading for a collision with earth don't you think all the advanced nations of the world would come together to address the threat? Probably. In 1992, in Rio de Janeiro the world came together to address the threat to all mankind poses by the destruction of the ozone layer in our atmosphere by manmade chemicals. The ozone hole was allowing lethal levels of ultraviolet light to pound humans, plants and animals all over the earth. In similar fashion, eventually we will address global climate disruption. The only question is when. Will we start now, and lessen the impacts on our children and grandchildren? Or will we put off the inevitable and leave failed life support systems all over the world for future generations to live under? Our consumer lifestyle promotes immediate consumption now and discourages longer term planning. That's why it's so hard for our society to act now to stem destruction we're already seeing. In the case of the ozone hole, political and scientific leaders dealt with the problem and much of the public never even understood the depth of the threat. When it comes to global climate disruption, addressing the problem means replacing or displacing the biggest vested interests the world has ever known; the oil and coal industries....

The vast majority of scientists who study global warming agree -- in perhaps the broadest scientific consensus since research so compellingly made the case that smoking tobacco causes cancer -- that global warming is already underway, the burning of fossil fuels by humans is a primary driver of those harmful changes to our climate, and if we don't urgently act we will be putting life on earth at grave risk. We must act now, with great moral clarity and in very large numbers, to demand that our elected leaders at every level put in place the bold policies needed to aggressively reduce global warming pollutants. In so doing we will be honoring our far-sighted and courageous predecessors who led the fights to win women's suffrage, enforce civil rights for all, adopt sweeping environmental protections in the 1970s, reduce the superpower's nuclear weapons arsenals and end apartheid....

The health and well being of too many people, including our children, is at stake for this to be merely a political or even just an environmental issue. Global warming crosses numerous boundaries and is as much a social, health and economic concern as it is an environmental one.

From West Point to the West Wing, it has been an honor for me to march shoulder-to-shoulder with the men and women who make up the backbone of our nation’s security. Many people do not understand that global warming and environmental policy are indeed national security matters because it’s hard to see with the naked eye. We can see the impact of global warming on our lands, skies and waters. However, we have to look harder to see its effect on the geopolitical paradigm. As the average temperatures continue to rise around the world, the ice caps melt leading to reduced salinity levels in the ocean; higher sea levels; harsher winter weather, reduced soil moisture, more intense wind conditions. These conditions lead to drought and food shortages, decreased access to fresh drinking water and less secure access to energy supplies. The pressure caused by this phenomenon is a destabilizing force in global politics that could lead to civil unrest and international conflict. ...

Carbon dioxide emitted from the burning of coal, oil and gas, remains in the atmosphere for over 100 years. We are thus already committed to some warming because of past emissions. Every day that we continue to increase our emissions, we commit to even more warming and everything that comes with it: rising sea levels, heavy downpours, heat waves, insect-borne diseases, and other assaults on our health and well being. It is thus URGENT that we begin to control emissions now to reduce the amount of warming.

The time has come for all Americans to speak out in one collective voice to demand that the United States start taking serious actions to stop global warming. It is a fact that the U.S. is the world’s biggest global warming polluter and yet it is doing nothing to stop it. As American citizens, young and old, we do not think this is acceptable and we all must do something about it now!...

Mindy Lubber
President, Ceres

When Ceres first suggested that climate change poses enormous risks and opportunities in virtually every sector of our economy, many doubted that Wall Street or institutional investors would ever pay attention. This has changed....

Barack Obama
Senator (D-IL)

We now know without a doubt that global warming is threatening us with higher temperatures, more drought, more wildfire, more flooding, and more erosion of our coastal communities. People who don't believe this can yell about it as loudly as they want, but it doesn't change the fact that the overwhelming scientific evidence and even the administration's own State Department have proven this over and over again. We must act now with the rest of the world to curb emissions so that we can leave our children a safer, healthier planet....

Jim Lovell
Astronaut

When I circled the moon and looked back at Earth my outlook on life and my viewpoint of Earth changed. You don’t see Las Vegas, Boston or even New York. You don’t see boundaries or people. No whites, blacks, French, Greeks, Christians or Jews. The Earth looks completely uninhabited, and you know that on Spaceship Earth, there live over six billion astronauts, all seeking the same things from life. ...

Elizabeth Kolbert

Twenty-five years ago, when the National Academy of Sciences first looked into it, global warming was a theory. Today it is a reality. The Arctic ice cap is melting. The world's permafrost is thawing; nearly every major glacier is shrinking; the oceans are growing not just warmer, but more acidic; and plants are blooming days, in some cases weeks earlier than they used to. Many of the changes that have already taken place cannot be reversed. Meanwhile, much graver changes lie ahead if we do not act. I march because, in a very real sense, the future is now....

Carol Browner
Former Head of EPA

If this generation fails to address the consequences of climate change and greenhouse gas emissions, we will become the first generation to leave to subsequent generations -- our children and children's children -- a permanently altered earth. That is simply unacceptable. The time for action is now. I believe it is our moral and ethical obligation. ...

Bill McDonough

If global warming had been given as a design assignment, we’d be doing really well. Unfortunately, it’s the kind of design assignment that no ethical or moral designer could ever accept. Join me on the virtual march to stop global warming....

Larry Schweiger
President and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation

I was born in Pittsburgh, Pa., in a time when it was one of the most polluted cities in America. I learned first hand that dramatic change is possible as Pittsburgh is now a clean center of high-tech and medical research. ...

Jerome Ringo
Chairman of the National Wildlife Federation

I am marching not only for the National Wildlife Federation, but also for my hometown of Lake Charles, La., which was hit hard by Hurricane Rita. I spent three weeks volunteering in local shelters after Katrina. After the first few days, I noticed that people in the shelters weren't talking about the storm anymore. They were coming to me and saying, "Tell me more about this global warming. What is it? How is it contributing to the intensity of these storms?"...

Michael DiBerardinis
Secretary - PA DCNR

I am proud to support Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell and join in this Virtual March. There is no more serious threat to our environment and rich natural heritage than the one posed by global warming. But the solutions to this problem offer enormous win-win opportunities for our nation. Efficiency, innovation, and expanded use of renewable energy are solutions that will reduce global warming emissions and create new jobs, strengthen our economy and national security, and clean our air. Wise management and conservation of our lands and forests are solutions that will allow us to store carbon harmlessly and conserve and enhance our precious natural resources. As Governor Rendell said, global warming is a problem---but it is a huge opportunity as well. We dare not let this opportunity pass us by....

Barbara Adams
General Counsel for the Commenwealth of PA

In Pennsylvania, under the governorship of Ed Rendell, we are galvanized into action to stop global warming, because of the mounting evidence of the destruction it wreaks and the knowledge that we can make a difference. By uniting in efforts like this, we hope to spur needed action on this critical world issue that impacts every one of us, and upon which we all make an impact. From our joining in this march, to our recycling efforts, to Governor Rendell’s leadership role in proposing a National Energy Harvest Initiative, every effort matters. Lawyers have special skills and tools to assist in this effort and, as General Counsel for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, I am in position to and am urging each of the attorneys of the Office of General Counsel to join in this worthy initiative....

Stephen Schneider

As a climate scientist who has worked for over 3 decades to get cost-effective and environmentally sound policies implemented to slow global warming and air pollution at the same time, I am heartened that over 150 American cities and a dozen or more states are implementing money saving and health-beneficial policies to reverse our joy ride toward unsustainability. It is about time our federal government caught up with the vast network of citizens, local and state governments and joined with the many nations that have ratified the international treaty to cut global greenhouse gasses. Yet, the worlds biggest economy and largest emitter has told the world we don't want to play as it is economically inconvenient for some special intersts....

The issues of global warming and environmental protection are often lost in the sea of other concerns that dominate Washington. This is unfortunate because the federal government has a responsibility to reduce the overwhelming US contribution to global warming and work to repair past environmental damage....
