President must unite America to secure prosperity and fight climate change
President Obama now has a second chance to put this nation on course to a prosperous future built on clean energy. (Scout Tufankjian)

The American people have reinvested their faith in a President who now has a second chance to put this nation on course to a prosperous future built on clean energy and with a far-reaching goal of ending mankind’s role in climate change.

In the wake of superstorm Sandy, voters saw—and many continue to experience—the impacts of climate change-induced weather. They are convinced and, like us, demand that President Obama take action to steer us away from the fossil fuels that feed climate change. This is the real path to energy independence.

Voters have also made clear that the nation’s natural treasures are not for sale to those who would ravage our lands and pollute our waters and air for short-term gain. They rejected the idea of unleashing the drillers and excavators on a modern-day land rush. They refused to elect someone who promised to weaken fundamental protections like the Clean Water Act, and gut the Environmental Protection Agency. And they are demanding that America’s political leaders reach across party lines to finally start achieving these goals.

Even with this renewed support from America, President Obama still faces the old challenges of a hostile, anti-environment Congress. Earthjustice is prepared to stand with the President as he stands up to the corporate lobbying forces that threaten to outweigh the vote of the people.

Dear President Obama, you are a man I really admire you stood up for women's rights and the right of all people whether they have money or not. I admire you in many ways. You raised the question nobody else did you took the step to start in the right direction to invest in green energy. I hope you will continue with it as well .. In all your speech, you talked about you the important is that we should take care of the earth that we should let our children live on a planet that we have done everything to save. You are the first who stood up for this and I hope you will continue with this. I hope I get to see more green jobs. I believe in you and I hope you do not disappoint me-
I trust you mr president and i believe in you.. You said during the election race that you hear everyones voices and even that you had to earn every vote .. I hope you still hear my voice and i hope you will take more stepes to make the world a better place.
i but my trust in you now mr president...

Dear President Obama,

First off, I want to send you a congrads on your win, and pray that you can do all that needs to be done to help those of us whom are poor (living on $474 a month on SSI), and those in the middle class.. We need major help...

The other subject I'd like to mention is the need for clean energy.. Through the years, the republi-scammer and the so-called Regan Democrats (who should have a "R" at the end of their names, since they are actually republi-scammers) have continued to destroy our world all for money... We need to find ways to keep this world alive... I am sickened by the greedy idiots who do not care for our environment.. Those who can care less because when the majority of the trouble this world will endure will be when they are dead..

The same goes for the animal murderers in this world... Salazar is killing wild horses, and with this country allowing the killing of cats and dogs in so-called "shelters" is insane.. These poor defenseless animals do not have voices and are bering murdered because their so-called "owners" do not spay and neuter them.. Also being called "shelters" most people do not think that when they bring them to the shelters, the animals will die, only because they are now called "shelters" and not "pounds"...

I'm sorry Mr President, but our world and animals need majopr help, and the fight against the idiots that have been voted into office by the inept, brainwashed persons whom believe that Faux (Fox) news is a real news station, and is not Koch Brother's propaganda...

I beg you.. Please do what you can, and force your demands down their throats.. The Republi-scammers insist that they control our government still.. Enough is enough.. Tell them to go take their toys and go hoime.. They've made enough money to live on by what they have done to the world..

Thank You, and I Wish You Well...

Blessings and May your Path Be Smooth,

There is every reason to remain optimistic about the future of our planet. It's important to remember the wise words of Thomas Berry, ecological visionary who said, "the universe is a collections of subjects, not a collection of objects." Once we realize that the universe is not something that is "out there in deep outerspace " but in fact everywhere, all around us and that we are part of it, our way of consuming "natural resources" will be placed into perspective.

I am in complete agreement with you Trip, President Obama has a second chance to be the leader whom we wanted in the first term. The time is now to place our Mother Earth, Gaia at the top of the agenda -- without her, we can't be us. Together we are one.
