Join Earth Day Live April 22-24: Mobilize Online to Solve the Climate Crisis

Wednesday, April 22, 2020 is the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, and this year’s theme is climate action! In the face of the global coronavirus pandemic, a mighty coalition of Earth Day groups is busy imagining, planning, and creating new ways to raise our voices in support of climate action while doing our part to protect everyone’s health by cancelling or postponing all physical gatherings. This month’s action is to join this effort.  Sign up with Earth Day Live right now to get updates on virtual actions you can participate in!

PROTECT OUR BEDROCK ENVIRONMENTAL LAW

A new proposal from the administration is aimed at blocking the federal government from analyzing the impacts of federal projects on climate change, and fundamentally weakening the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), our bedrock environmental law. This time-limited action provided tools to comment on this disastrous proposal during the public comment period, which is now over.

TALK TO A FRIEND ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE

Right now, you can do something that many climate experts say is the single most effective thing you can do to fight climate change. It costs nothing, requires only a few minutes, and just requires a bit of courage to try. Talk to a friend or family member about climate change. Talk about why you care, and what actions you are taking. Talk to someone who is concerned about climate change to some extent. You do not need to talk with a climate denier: climate scientist Dr. Katherine Hayhoe says “The biggest challenge isn’t science denial, it’s complacency.”

ASK CONGRESS TO PASS STRONG CLEAN ENERGY INCENTIVES

Congress can take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support the transition to clean energy. One approach is to extend and expand tax credits for renewable energy and battery storage that have helped drive investments in clean energy and begun decarbonizing our electricity sector. This action was aimed at a 2019 proposal to exapand clean energy tax credits.
