The official Twitter account of President Obama contained a pleading message to the environmental regulatory crowd to “stick it” to skeptics who don’t believe that carbon dioxide emission crackdowns are the only way to save the world.

The message from @BarackObama: “This is a big moment in the fight against climate change — stick it to climate change deniers by adding your name” to this petition — and the message then contained a link to an Organizing for Action press release and petition.

The plea for action on the Organizing for Action website went on to call for more support for Mr. Obama’s push to cut carbon emissions.

“Deniers and deep-pocketed polluters make it pretty hard to get anything done on climate change — but here’s one meaningful way you can fight them: The EPA is collecting comments on President Obama’s climate plan, and it’s our chance to show public support,” the Organizing for Action site reads. “If you care about fighting climate change — or just want to stick it to the groups denying basic science — add your name to tell the EPA where you stand.”

The website rally call also included several spots to link to the petition.

“This is one of the decisive moments in the fight against climate change,” the site read. “The other side thins they can win this fight simply by shouting the loudest and they have a lot of money to back it up. What they don’t have is a whole lot of people — genuine voices standing up for what’s right. And we’ve proved time and again that, when we raise our voices together, we can take on even the most powerful interests.”

The Blaze reported the Twitter account is run mostly by Organizing for Action staffers, but the president himself occasionally does send out messages.
