It’s crunch time for national climate action!
The President, the Senate and the House have included big bold climate provisions in the Budget Reconciliation Package they are working on passing this fall. It’s no exaggeration to say this is the best chance in more than a decade to enact policies that can get us on a path to decarbonization in time to meet our goals under the Paris Climate Accord.
Use the link below (from CCL) to contact your Senators asking them to enact bold climate policies including a price on carbon in the Reconciliation Package:TAKE ACTION
This tool makes contacting your Senators easy! You can send a pre-written email or, for maximum impact, personalize your message.
Many powerful interests are fighting to weaken and derail these efforts. YOU can help by letting your Members of Congress and your President know you want them to pass sweeping, bold action tackling the climate crisis!

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.”
Preserving the world’s forests is a critical element in the fight against climate change. According to NRDC, the Canadian boreal forest is under severe threat from logging, and being used for paper products sold in the U.S. Switch to Green Forest, Natural Value, Seventh Generation, or other recycled brands.LEARN MORE AND TAKE ACTION!
