We may be at the edge of our climate moment. Public opinion appears to be turning toward a fuller understanding of the impacts of climate change and the implications for our future. In this episode of World Ocean Radio host Peter Neill will suggest a way to form a viral revolution, concentrating our voices in one place--the office of the President of the United States--to demand a response to our expectations for action and change. 

Here is the message for the President:

Dear President Obama,

As a Citizen of the United States, I urge your immediate national and international leadership, full executive commitment, and uncompromising personal support for direct action at every level in every department of government to meet the challenge of climate change in every aspect of our lives.
