Warning: Extra Potent Monday Action!

The Paris U.N. Climate Talks have concluded, and the news is better than many of us expected: The world acknowledged that it’s us or fossil fuels. Now we need binding laws, FAST.

So it’s up to the People- it’s up to you: As leading climate scientist, Jim Hansen says: “[T]he only way we’ll keep it [fossil fuel] in the ground is with a rising fee on carbon so that we get other energies to replace the fossil fuels… [W]e need grassroots support.”

WARNING Usually you contact one person a week. This Monday Action is seven times bigger than usual– so take a deep breath, and give it a little extra time or pick one representative (or do one a day this week…!)

Today’s Action offers you the chance to tell all SEVEN of the elected representatives we check in with regularly to put a true price on carbon, a carbon fee and dividend.

Dear President Obama/Senator/Congressman/Governor/State Senator/State Representative,

I am urgently concerned about climate change. This is the defining issue on which future generations will judge us. Therefore we need you to do all you can to get us a carbon fee and dividend. NOW.

I vote for a livable future, and that future must be carbon-neutral.
Sincerely,
YOUR NAME
YOUR TOWN

  1. So it’s up to the People- it’s up to you: As leading climate scientist, Jim Hansen says: “[T]he only way we’ll keep it [fossil fuel] in the ground is with a rising fee on carbon so that we get other energies to replace the fossil fuels… [W]e need grassroots support.”       This is a Hit or Miss and in practice generally ineffective solution. Taxing the world economy into submission!!! Most of the fossil fuel is used for food and Manufacture of Goods. Invest in alternative….      We need less expensive alternatives and investment in the infrastructure and systems that would go along with clean free energy for all. This would create a Market Environment where it is possible to provide water based LIQUID FUEL AT LESS THAN 30$ A BARREL.      I just reinstalled my wood stove. This is as bad as it get’s; however I’ll have heat.                           John Amherst Mass
