Now or Never, President Obama

President Obama: while your negotiators block progress for the rest of humanity and the world, anthropogenic change sharpens its teeth on Africa.

Two years ago you said: “We understand the gravity of the climate threat. We are determined to act. And we will meet our responsibility to future generations.”

Instead, you’re a politician like any other, and what you spoke was lip service. You’ve either given up or don’t care. I absolutely regret voting for your campaign, and I’m embarrassed to be native to a country which is acting in such an ignorant, careless manner.

Our kind and the Earth are guaranteed to suffer unless your delegation will lead, follow or get out of the way at the Durban climate talks.
