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.
