Five days post-inauguration, famed climate scientist, James E. Hansen, and Climate Protection and Restoration Initiative’s Executive Director, Dan Galpern, privately wrote to the President. 

Five months later, they went public – urging President Biden to immediately utilize his existing statutory authority to phase-out dangerous fossil fuel emissions. 

Now, as smoke from western states’ wildfires encircles the globe, we take our petition campaign to the streets.

Step It Up on Climate: 

Road to the White House No-Excuses Tour

Forged by Fire and Flood.

General Counsel and Executive Director Dan Galpern will cross the nation, by bike, to galvanize public demand for real climate action.

There is no excuse.

Under existing statutory authority, the President can direct the EPA to Impose a Rising Fee on Carbon Pollution Without Further Delay. See our Petition.
