which confirmed his commitment to address global warming. “Few challenges

From December 1-12, world leaders will gather in Poland for the United Nations Climate
Change Conference to negotiate a pathway out of the climate crisis.
“President-elect Obama has kicked the gears of change into motion. The call for
action will echo from the halls of Washington to the capitals of nations around the world,” said Larry Schweiger, president

a climate meltdown will aid our recovery from the global financial meltdown,”
