The US is facing one of the worst droughts in our history, but Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says he doesn’t want to “opine” as to the role of climate change.* That is not acceptable. The scientific links between climate change and drought are well established by his own Department, and it’s Secretary Vilsack’s responsibility to share that information with farmers and the American public.

Sign this petition to tell Secretary Vilsack to help America’s farmers by giving them the truth about manmade climate change.

The following is the petition we’ll deliver to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack:

Please tell farmers and the American public about the connections between climate change and the current drought, as well as the massive implications that manmade climate change has for the future of American farming.
