SAVE THE CLIMATE TREATY !

FLOOD GEORGE BUSH WITH YOUR E-MAILS!

>Stop President Bush from betraying the UN climate change treaty!

Last year the US blocked progress at negotiations in The
Netherlands, now Texas oil-man President George W. Bush wants to
destroy the Kyoto Protocol on climate change.

Friends of the Earth asks people around the world to
electronically flood the White House with protest E-mails.

Let's give President Bush a taste of what climate change means
and how much people are concerned about it.

=========================
Please cut and paste the message below into a new E-mail and send
it to: PRESIDENT BUSH:
president@whitehouse.gov
Please copy (CC) to: protest@foeeurope.org  (IMPORTANT!)
You can also send the letter via:

=========================

Dear President Bush,

I call on you as President of the USA not to betray the Kyoto
Protocol.

The United States must live up to its commitment to the UN
negotiations to prevent global warming. Sabotaging the Kyoto
Protocol puts the USA into a position of environmental
isolationism and makes it responsible for climate catastrophe.

The US has one of the highest per capita CO2 emissions in the
world. People around the world already faced with the first signs
of climate change, suffering from floods and hurricanes, expect
your country to be in the forefront of tackling climate change.

An enormous potential of creativity, innovation and efficiency is
there to be harvested once we have decided to really reduce CO2
emissions. If you fail to reverse your decision to kill the Kyoto
Protocol, future generations will not forgive you.

President Bush, the science is clear and the international
political will is there to tackle climate change. The US must
join the world in fighting global warming!

Sincerely,
X

=====================

Background:

- A White House spokesman said: "The president has been
unequivocal. He does not support the Kyoto treaty." The Swedish
Environment Minister described the move as "appalling and
provocative".

- Bush's campaign for presidency was backed and financed by major
US oil giants, which campaigned against the international treaty
to prevent global warming.

- The US promised to cut their climate changing gases by 7% over
1990 levels before 2012 at the latest, but US emissions in fact
rose by more than 10% between 1990 and 2000.

RETTET DAS KLIMA-ABKOMMEN!

ÜBERSCHUETTET GEORGE BUSH MIT EUREN E-MAILS!

Stoppt Praesident Bush vom Verrat an der UN-Klima-Aenderungsuebereinkunft!

Voriges Jahr blockierten die USA den Fortschritt der Verhandlungen in den
Niederlanden, nun moechte der Texas-Oel-Mann Praesident George W. Bush das
Kioto- Protokoll zur Klima-Veraenderung vom Tisch fegen.

 "Friends of the Earth" bitten Menschen in aller Welt, das Weisse Haus mit
Protest-E-Mails einzudecken.

Lasst uns Praesident Bush eine Kostprobe davon geben, was Klima-Aenderung
bedeutet, und wie viele Leute darueber besorgt sind.

 =========================
Bitte kopiert die folgende Botschaft  - zwischen den "$"-Zeichen, darunter

Sprache seiner Vorfahren beherrscht er nicht mehr) natuerlich nicht

darueberstehende E-Mail-Adresse, fuegt, falls ihr moechtet, bei "CC" zur

Dear President Bush,

Uebersetzung:

Sehr geehrter Praesident Bush,

Sie, als Praesidenten der USA, rufe ich auf, das Kioto-Protokoll nicht zu
missachten.

Die Vereinigten Staaten muessen ihre Zustimmung zu den UN-Verhandlungen 
mit
Leben erfuellen, um den Treibhaus-Effekt zu verhindern. Ein Sabotieren des
Kioto-Protokolls bringt die USA in eine Position von Umwelt-Isolationismus
und macht sie zum Verantwortlichen einer Klima-Katastrophe.

Die Vereinigten Staaten haben den hoechsten Pro-Kopf-Ausstoss von CO2 in 
der
ganzen Welt. Menschen in aller Welt sind bereits von den ersten Anzeichen
eines Klima-Wandels betroffen, leiden unter Ueberschwemmungen und
Hurrikanen, warten darauf, dass Ihr Land in vorderster Front gegen den
Klima-Wechsel angeht.

Es gibt bereits ein bedeutendes Potential an Kreativitaet, Innovation und
Ausfuehrbarkeit, das nur auf seine Nutzung wartet, sobald mal entschieden
sein wird, CO2-Emissionen wirklich zu vermindern. Wenn Sie es nicht
schaffen, Ihre Entscheidung, das Kioto-Protokoll zu vernichten, zu
widerrufen - kommende Generationen werden es Ihnen nicht vergessen.

Praesident Bush, das wissenschaftliche Instrumentarium ist erprobt, und 
der
internationale Wille, den Klima-Wechsel anzugehen, existiert. Die USA
muessen sich der Welt anschliessen, um den Klima-Umschwung zu bekaempfen.

Mit freundlichen Gruessen
X

Hintergrund:

- Bushs Wahlkampagne wurde gedeckt und finanziert von bedeutenden
USA-Oel-Giganten, die querschossen gegen das internationale Uebereinkommen
zur Verhinderung der globalen Erwaermung.

Die USA versprachen, ihren Ausstoß an Treibhausgasen auf um die 7% über 
dem
1990er Level zu senken, spaetestens bis 2012, aber statt dessen wuchs er 
um
mehr als 10% im Zeitraum von 1990 - 2000.

Ein Sprecher des Weissen Hauses sagte: "Der Praesident hat anders
entschieden. Er unterstuetzt das Kioto-Abkommen nicht." Der Umweltminister
Schwedens beschrieb diese Wendung als "aufschreckend und provokativ".

FLOOD BUSH e-PROTEST
=============================

Thanks for your support!
10,000s of e-protests to FLOOD BUSH cannot be ignored !

It’s a huge success - the message is loud and clear:
“George W. Bush – Don’t destroy the Climate Treaty!”

At peak times a new protest e-mail arrives every second at the
White House. More than 10,000 messages have been sent every day
since the start of the action! Messages from Patagonia to
Pakistan, from Texas to Tasmania and from China to Costa Rica.
People from every continent and all backgrounds are joining in,
including representatives of business, governments, parliaments,
churches and NGOs – many adding their personal messages. 200
representatives of the European Commission are among the
protesters just as much as employees of BP and Shell, using their
office computers. More than 2,500 US citizens even sent a protest
fax to George Bush.

By Sunday evening (April 8) over 70,000 e-mails had been sent to
the White House! Newspapers in many countries wrote about this
action.

Several people told us that they were not able to reach the White
House. The White House server was apparently unable to deal with
the high number of e-protests and therefore was unavailable
several times.

THE E-PROTEST IS CONTINUING AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Please circulate the e-protest as widely as possible by sending
the message below to everyone you know (cut and paste into new
E-mail)!

If you are interested in further activities of Friends of the
Earth on Climate Change, including a mass-demonstration during
the UN climate negotiations in Bonn, Germany, July 21st, go to:
http://www.foeeurope.org/climate
You can also find the latest numbers and information on the
e-protest there as well as pictures of the peaceful and creative
mass action that Friends of the Earth organised during the last
UN climate negotiations ("The Dike").

Please send comments to: <protest-comment@foeeurope.org>

Please note: Your e-address will not be used for anything else
than to inform you about this campaign and will not be given to
anybody else.
