Dear President Bush,
I call on you as President of the USA not to betray the Kyoto
Protocol. The United States must live up to its commitment to the UN
negotiations to prevent global warming. Sabotaging the Kyoto Protocol
puts the USA into a position of environmental isolationism and makes
it responsible for a climate catastrophe within this century.
The US has the highest per capita CO2 emissions in the world. My country,
Czechia, is not much better, but many Czech citizens are doing their best
to lower our contribution to rising greenhouse gases concentration and
the Czech government supports such activities.
People around the world already faced with the first signs of climate
change, suffering from floods and hurricanes, expect your country to
be in the forefront of tackling climate change.
An enormous potential of creativity, innovation and efficiency
is there to be harvested once we have decided to really reduce CO2
emission. If you fail to reverse your decision to kill the Kyoto
Protocol, future generations will not forgive you.
President Bush, the science is proven and the international
political will is there to tackle climate change. The US must join
the progressive nations and tackle climate change.
