Take Action on Climate Change Before It's Too Late!

Dear Member of Congress,

 

There is no doubt that climate change is real and poses a grave danger to current and future generations of Americans. As your constituent, I urge your leadership on and support of legislation to lower greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the devastating effects of climate change.

 

The IPCC report illuminates what we can see happening for ourselves: increasing natural disasters and devastating storms, deepening agricultural impacts, growing health consequences, and heavy economic impacts all due to our greenhouse gas emissions into the earth’s atmosphere. However, this time, the report suggests a much closer timeline than ever before.  We must make significant changes to substantially lower greenhouse gas emissions in the next decade. The consequences will be dire if we don’t act immediately.

 

America has the opportunity to be a leader in both domestic legislative actions and in our global response to curb rapid progress of climate change. Climate change poses a threat to the health and well-being of our citizens, our economic growth, our national security and our reputation as a world leader.  In addition, there are many new opportunities for economic development in the transition to renewable energy.

 

Will you support the goal of 100% clean energy, across the entire US economy, by 2050? I urge you to become a leader who will protect and help ensure a livable planet for our grandchildren, future generations and all life.
