Union of Concerned Scientists
- Marching Since: September 07, 2005
As a nation, we have always approached our greatest challenges with wisdom, commitment, and purpose. We use our courage, ingenuity, and creativity to challenge conventional beliefs and find the answers that shatter the boundaries of what is possible. Think of the internal combustion engine, the first moon landing, and the internet. Meeting the challenge of global warming will once again require American leadership to create a sustainable and vibrant future for our children. It will also require the active participation of every U.S. citizen. >
The mainstream scientific consensus on global warming is clear and compelling: changes in our climate are real and are already under way. For example, global sea level is rising about three times faster over the past 100 years compared with the previous 3,000 years, and the last decade was the hottest on record. As Earth continues to warm, there is a growing risk that the climate will change in ways that will seriously disrupt our lives, as well as the landscapes and animals we cherish.
UCS has joined the Stop Global Warming Virtual March on Washington –together with citizens across the country–to call for real leadership in Washington, DC on the critically important issue of global warming. We invite our members – and your family and friends – to march with us to demonstrate the commitment of the American people to once again finding a solution that creates a better world.
