Just 3 more weeks in our 40-week countdown to the UN Climate Summit in Paris. And big things are heating up: the President rejected the Keystone XL pipeline and China is burning 17% more coal than we thought. We have to go for broke: What would it take to wean us from fossil fuels this decade?
Urge Your Massachusetts House Representative to be bolder than ever before.
Dear Representative Story,
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. We look to you for your leadership.
This week the Pacific Ocean was 9 degrees Fahrenheit above normal, what the NYT called a “cauldron”. It’s time to pull the emergency brake: We need very bold action. What are you doing to wean us from fossil fuels this decade? I would like to see that plan.
