AFP: Join Me LIVE from Copenhagen

Americans for Prosperity

In 9 days President Barack Obama will go to Copenhagen, Denmark for the United Nations Climate Change Conference.  No doubt, the President intends to commit the United States to an energy rationing scheme that makes the U.S. accountable to U.N. bureaucrats, kills jobs here, dramatically raises the price of gasoline and electricity, and infringes on our personal and national freedoms — all in the name of a radical global warming ideology that is called into question more and more each day.

As part of our ongoing “Cost of Hot Air” effort, Americans for Prosperity is going to Copenhagen on the same day as the President to make sure that our side of the story is told.

On December 9, AFP will hold a live event from Copenhagen that will broadcast simultaneously at local AFP events across the nation and live at We’ll detail the hypocrisy of the U.N. Climate Change Conference and give you the opportunity to send your elected officials a crystal clear message: don’t you dare use this U.N. Conference to turn over our nation’s energy policy to some international body that could care less about American prosperity.

Phil Kerpen and I will be in Copenhagen hosting an event with Lord Monckton (click here to join the 3.5 million people who have seen his video detailing how our nation could be threatened by international climate agreements) and other European free-market leaders who will detail the hypocrisy of this U.N. conference and explain how cap-and-trade has killed jobs and raised energy prices in their nations.

The anchor event in the United States will be held in Philadelphia at noon that day with AFP’s own Steven Lonegan hosting and special guest speaker Steve Moore (FOX News contributor and Wall Street Journal editorial board writer).   We’ll have more details about these events — and how you can attend — within the next few days.

I’m asking you to take 3 steps.

First, let us know you will consider attending one of the FREE “Cost of Hot Air” events near you on December 9, where we’ll have the Copenhagen event running live along with local speakers.  CLICK HERE

Second, if you cannot attend one of the events, view it live at our website or better yet, hold your own get-together for family and friends.  CLICK HERE to do this.

Third, please consider sending this email invitation on to your family and friends by CLICKING here.  We need to make sure the politicians in Washington know that Americans are closely watching the cap-and-trade issue and that the U.N. Conference in Copenhagen changes absolutely nothing.

You’ve no doubt seen the ClimateGate email scandal that’s exploded since a whistle blower in the United Kingdom exposed emails and files showing just how unethical and outrageous the behavior of global warming ideologues has been.  They’ve tried to censor scientists who disagree with them on global warming.  They’ve tried to suppress -and conveniently lost track of -data that contradicts their ideology.  They’ve personally vilified opponents instead of engaging them on the actual issues.  All this sounds pretty familiar, doesn’t it?  But this time, it’s being done by scientists instead of politicians.

We’re going to be in Copenhagen on December 9 with President Obama — telling the real story and making sure our Senators see American citizens taking a stand against outsourcing U.S. energy policy to an international body.

But, to accomplish this goal we need your help. And, as always, there’s a high cost associated with this kind of activism.  Click here to invest in this battle today.  Thank you for all you do.

PS:  Our “Cost of Hot Air” events across the United States on December 9 are our last opportunity in 2009 to send the politicians a message on cap-and-trade — on the very day that President Obama will be in Copenhagen at the United Nations Climate Change Conference.  Get involved and let’s make sure they know that the choice for them is clear:  side with Americans determined to keep our nation in charge of our own energy policy and economy OR side with U.N. bureaucrats and the extreme Left, which wants to use this conference to get the United States to agree to binding energy rationing limits that will kill jobs, raise gasoline and utility prices and take away many of our freedoms.
