Global warming is fast becoming the number one environmental problem of our time. Apart from its far-reaching impacts on humanity, global warming may prove disastrous to the wildlife of Greater Yellowstone, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and other vulnerable wildlands that are already suffering the effects of a changing climate. The world’s leading scientists are now agreed that global warming is real and is happening right now. According to their forecasts, extreme changes in climate could produce a future in which erratic and chaotic weather, melting ice caps and rising sea levels usher in an era of drought, crop failure, famine, flood and mass extinctions. The good news is, we have the technology to avert such a catastrophic future. All that’s lacking is the political will in Washington. That’s why we have joined the Stop Global Warming Virtual March on Washington and why we are asking NRDC Members and activists and their family and friends to do the same. Together, we will demand that Congress and the Bush Administration take the necessary and long overdue steps to reverse potentially catastrophic changes in the Earth’s climate. Make your own commitment to stop global warming. Future generations will thank us for taking this momentous step in the right direction.
