President Obama recently linked his daughter Malia’s asthma to climate change. He still has a chance to be our climate hero (see Bill McKibben’s 6/11/15 open letter) Let’s thank Obama for connecting climate change to children’s health and tell him this is why we oppose the TPP:

MONDAY ACTION: Week 24 in Countdown to UN Climate Talks in Paris
Dear Mr. President,
I am urgently concerned about climate change. This is the defining issue on which future generations will judge us. Therefore I urge you to be bold in fighting for real solutions to stop climate change. Be our climate hero, there is still time!
Thank you for speaking out in April about the connection between climate change and our children’s health: To stop climate change we have to keep fossil fuels in the ground. I don’t understand how you could support the TPP when this Trans-Pacific Partnership would let fossil fuel companies sue governments to dig them up. I oppose the TPP.
Please direct your Paris delegates to be bold on our behalf this December at the UN Climate Talks. I am part of a growing movement united in our desire to halt climate change. Your boldness is crucial to our collective future.
I exercise my right to vote.

You did it! Bye. See you next Monday!
Thank you for being the change you want to see!
Wait, you’re still here?
So that took you less than 5 minutes? You want more?
Did you know: Senator Markey’s aide told us that they tally only issues and addresses and pass that spreadsheet on to the Senator once a week. MA State Representative Peter Kocut says “6 calls from my constituents on one issue represents a mandate.”
So please never be afraid to cut and paste, call, or pour your heart out in email or letters and share your solutions. Your voice gets counted the same in each case.
