Monday Action 9/5/16: Tell Your Governor To Help Win the War on Climate Change.
Call your governor if you can, but no guilt about cutting and pasting. Use the text below as a guide. Then share this online petition with five people today – they can be out of state! – to Take Action on Climate.

I am urgently concerned about climate change. All future children are depending on us to leave them a livable world.
So far this year, every single month has shattered a global heat record. We are at war and we need to win like we won WWII. Now more than ever we need our leaders to do everything possible to prevent the worst impacts from global warming. You, Governor, have the power to dramatically cut carbon pollution from the biggest source in the U.S. — power plants — and shift to a renewable energy future. Governor, our state can be a leader in using conservation to meet demand. We urge you to promote policies to bring robust conservation programs, such as demand response, to the entire state.
Can you tell me why we don’t have fleets of hydrogen cars like California and fueling stations with H2 made from renewable sources like those in Munich, Germany? We need to lead! Our children’s and our climate’s health depend on you. Thank you for doing more than you ever thought possible. There is not a moment to lose. Everything is at stake and we must win this war.
With Mothers Out Front
