Stop Global Warming

Written by Russell Greene

No issue reveals more clearly the flaws of the U.S. political-economic system than global warming. Greed and corporate power dominate the public good, and impose nearsighted focus on short term profits instead of serving our long-term needs and the welfare of future generations.

Stop Global Warming is part of PDA's Protect the Earth platform. The team works on the following issues:

  • Climate Change
  • Green Energy (solar/wind)
  • End Fracking
  • Nuclear Free


  • Utilities make local ratepayers pay for damage the companies cause
  • Tax breaks and rebates for Solar and Wind have expired – just when we need them the most
  • Fracking, and more, in our areas

Stop Global Warming Statistics

  • Carbon dioxide in our atmosphere:
    -   We must achieve = 350 parts per million
    -   Beginning of industrial revolution= 290 ppm
    -   Today = 396 ppm
  • September Arctic Sea ice is declining at a rate of 11.5% per decade - ocean levels have risen about 3.16 mm per year in the past 10 years
  • 75% of Americans support a carbon tax
