Here's something Mitt Romney actually joked about with pride -- and plenty of scorn -- while formally accepting the Republican nomination for president of the United States:

"President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet."

And the crowd went wild.

It is nothing short of terrifying to imagine a party that openly mocks climate change taking back the White House.

That's what we're up against -- join Environmentalists for Obama to fight back:

The contrast between our candidate and theirs couldn't be any clearer.

President Obama has more than doubled the amount of electricity we get from wind and solar over his first term -- and his plans for wind power are expected to help grow the wind industry to support 100,000 jobs by 2016. Both Romney and Ryan want to kill the wind production tax credit, which could come at the expense of 37,000 American jobs. Oh, but they would keep giving $X billion in tax breaks to Big Oil every single year.

And just this week, while President Obama's administration finalized historic fuel economy standards to double our vehicles' mileage by 2025 and cut carbon pollution from vehicles in half, the GOP adopted a platform that could kill investments in clean energy, and calls on Congress to prohibit the EPA from moving forward with new greenhouse gas regulations.

Surprise, surprise -- according to the Los Angeles Times, the platform "was written at the direction of the Romney campaign," making it heavily influenced by Big Oil interests.

So there you have it -- the stakes for clean air, clean water, and clean energy jobs couldn't be higher. Join the community that's organizing for the only candidate in this race who's fighting for them:

Thanks, and stay tuned.
