President Obama’s Inaugural Address made it clear he plans to take action on climate in his second term. He can only get this done with our help, our encouragement and our pressure! With our kick off of 100 Days of Action on Climate, we are committed to giving President Obama the political cover he needs to take bold and decisive action on climate including denying a permit for the XL Canadian Tar Sands Pipeline.
