"Hunters, Anglers Urge Obama to Act on Climate Change"

"WASHINGTON, DC -- Hunters and anglers from across the United States are concerned about the impact of climate change on wildlife and natural resources and also on the U.S. hunting and angling economy, worth roughly $120 billion a year."

"As a coalition, they are asking President Barack Obama to follow through on his promises to act against warming temperatures given in his Inaugural Address in January and in his State of the Union speech in February.

Ten groups representing millions of anglers, hunters, scientists and conservationists sent a letter to the President on Monday asking that the Obama administration “develop and implement climate change adaptation strategies that support the resiliency of fish and wildlife populations.”"
