John F. Kennedy’s 1962 “We choose to go to the moon” speech is the reason we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. What most people don’t know is that he also cared about protecting the environment. During a campaign to raise environmental awareness, he mentioned the need to preserve “water to drink, …fresh air to breathe, (and) open space to enjoy”. Given his passion for motivating the nation to face seemingly daunting challenges, one can imagine him delivering the following speech today, encouraging us to take the next giant leap for mankind – a mission to bring climate change under control: We live in a time of change and challenge, in a decade of hope and fear, in an age of knowledge and ignorance. Despite the fact that the vast majority of climate scientists have agreed for decades that human-induced climate change poses an imminent threat, despite the fact that our nation’s citizens have called for climate action for decades, that call remains unanswered by Congress. Our impressive history of progress has taught us repeatedly that U.S. citizens will not be deterred in their quest for knowledge and progress. A global “green revolution” will proceed, whether we join in it or not. No nation that aspires to be a leader of other nations can choose to stay behind in the race to save our planet. Those who came before us ensured that this country rode the first waves of the industrial revolution and of modern invention. This generation does not intend to founder in the backwash of the coming age of green energy. We mean to be a part of it – we mean to lead it. For the eyes of the world see this crisis, and their governments are taking action. Our nation must do the same, by overcoming political gridlock, to avoid creating, through inaction, a future filled with carbon-emitting machines and carbon-intensive products that poison our air. We must create a future powered by renewable sources that work with our environment rather than against it. In short, our leadership in science and industry, our hopes for peace and security, our obligations to ourselves and others, require us to make this effort, to solve these challenges, and to become a world leader in developing and deploying renewable energy technologies. We must set forth on a new climate mission. Let there be no doubt that the consequences of unchecked carbon emissions are already upon us. The destabilized climate has unleashed record-breaking and catastrophic droughts, floods, fires, famine, and storms. The climate is changing, as a result of our past and current negligence, and its hazards are hostile to us all. This state of affairs deserves the best of all mankind, and this opportunity for peaceful global cooperation may never come again. But why, some say, tackle climate change? Why choose this as our goal? Why climb the highest mountain, some may ask? Why, 50 years ago, did we land men on the moon? We choose to solve the climate crisis in this century, not because it is easy, but because it is hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one we, the people, are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to achieve. It is for these reasons that I regard the decision to shift our efforts to combat the climate crisis from low to high gear as among the most important decisions that will be made during the history of this nation.

However, that is no longer true in America, and a biased press and social media, Pravda USA, is not only here but is America’s greatest danger. […]
