Take Action: Protect Our Planet for Our Children

The United States and the world face an urgent crisis--one that requires American leadership at home and abroad. We must lead in protecting our planet for our children and future generations.

The climate crisis cannot be ignored any longer. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a stark appraisal of the latest climate science: Humanity has only three decades to completely reinvent the global economy in order to hold the climate to 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels.

Tell your congressional representative that you support responsible protections to ensure our planet is healthy for today's children and future generations to come. Act now.

Not only would transitioning to clean energy sources cut the emissions responsible for climate change, but it would also cut the air pollution that can cause asthma and heart disease. Clean energy industries are also some of America's fastest-growing economic sectors, employing approximately 3.3 million American workers.

Now is the time to boost the economy, protect public health, and care for our planet's future simultaneously. Contact your representative today.
