Don’t Fight Climate Change Alone

Monday 11/14. The better climate candidate lost, and suddenly we face both tremendous danger and tremendous opportunity.
You’ll see two offerings to inspire you this week. The first one might be mostly for you, Dear Monday Actionist.

Today’s Monday Action: Write to President-Elect Trump
Please note: 1) Donald Trump does not use a computer. 2) We have a feel-good, click extra to Obama below. 3) Listed here too are lots of in-person events for you this week. You are not alone with this work.

VERSION A
Thank you, President-Elect Trump,
Your clarity woke me up. I am changed. From now on, every time I worry about climate change I will ask myself:

“What am I doing to save the world I love?” Then I’ll ask myself: “What more can I do to save the world I love?”

Then I will act.
This fills me with a great new hope, because
This, I can do.
And I know I am not alone.

I daresay most of us love this beautifully functioning, temperate world and do not want it to go off the rails –including you, you sly fox.

Sincerely,
YOUR NAME
YOUR TOWN AND STATE
With Mothers Out Front

VERSION B
Dear President Elect Trump,
I was heartened by your acceptance speech when you said you would be president for all of us in the country. In that vein, I implore you to keep the Paris Climate Agreement. It represents the world coming together to protect what we all have in common. We have a limited time to protect the earth from irreversible damage. No country can do this alone. THERE IS NO PLANET B.

You are in a unique position. You are not beholden to special interests, like the fossil fuel industry. You can help prevent some of the problems that are becoming more and more evident as the earth warms, like flooding, droughts, new diseases, more and more displaced persons and more refugees.

Again, I implore you for the sake of our children and future generations to work with other world leaders to protect the earth.
THERE IS NO PLANET B.
Thank you.

Sincerely,
YOUR NAME
YOUR TOWN AND STATE
With Mothers Out Front
