Forecast the Facts Says Fiscal Cliff is Manufactured, Climate Cliff is Real Threat

President Obama is right that “natural” disasters such as Superstorm Sandy are now influenced by human activities, namely the burning of fossil fuels. We welcome his belated call for a national conversation about how to address climate pollution. But the President’s assertion that addressing climate change should be secondary to concerns about the economy is a gross disappointment and an insult to the deep suffering of the millions of victims of climate disasters across this nation. While conventional D.C. wisdom is focused on the manufactured crisis of the “fiscal cliff,” the truth is that the most urgent threat to our national safety and economic well-being is the climate cliff that we are already beginning to tumble over.
