dwindling resources, hostile regimes, and a warming planet. We will
not be put off from action because action is hard. Now is the time to
make the tough choices. Now is the time to meet the challenge at this
crossroad of history by choosing a future that is safer for our
country, prosperous for our planet, and sustainable.
