Oh my. It seems you and I wish to leave two very different legacies, Mr. Coker. I prefer a habitable planet with clean air and water, sustainable energy sources and enough food to feed the world's billions. While I believe there is much, much more he can and should do (and I will vote for a "green" president if given the opportunity), President Obama is at least moving in the right direction.

CAFE fuel standards are in place so future vehicles will have higher MPGs (and be cleaner as well) and he is taking a hard look at climate change - the most pressing planetary issue of our time.

I feel pretty certain you haven't seen the movie 'Chasing Ice.' I recommend you take the time to watch it. You won't have to worry about "your" Republic if global issues aren't addressed.

I have to laugh at myself as I misread this petition's title (didn't read as deeply as I usually do) and took it to be against the Keystone pipeline. I still stand by the comments I made defending President Obama's actions on climate however. :-)

My biggest objections t the trade agreements is the tendency to eat the away at the sovereignty of smaller nations.

And of bigger nations! It affects everyone negatively except for shareholders of massive multinational corporations.

The cost of pharmaceuticals under the TPP will be the destruction of national health programs like New Zealand, Australia and Japan. It will make the programs much more costly, when there is already pressure to keep costs down. And, private insurance will demand that countries allow them to compete. Good bye to health care as a service provided by government, not as a for-profit commodity. Welcome to the US health care system -- dominated by the insurance industry and pharmaceuticals --...

Good bye to health care as a service provided by government, not as a for-profit commodity. Welcome to the US health care system -- dominated by the insurance industry and pharmaceuticals -- that is where the TPP will force countries that have much better health programs.

And Canada. Of course our current Prime Minister really doesn't seem to like our Canadian Healthcare system.

Dayle: Choosing fossil fuels over renewable, sustainable resources will affect us all. Please Google and watch the film 'Chasing Ice.' Once you've done so please search for one of the many organizations (350.org is a good start) working to fight climate change. There is really no time to waste.

This may be the single most dangerous policy issue affecting our planet. We need to stop it in its tracks!

Yeah TPP should be banned. Instead this petition seems merely to beg for minor access to negotiations info. Too often the public gets derailed into a " kinder, gentler" savagery.
