Today’s Action: Pass climate legislation now!

The past few years have produced severe, record-breaking weather events that are only getting worse. Last week, an ice storm wreaked havoc from Texas to Ohio, leaving over 300,000 people without power. Warm, unstable air in the southeast caused a massive tornado — in February — in Alabama, injuring 8 and killing one.

2021 yielded some of the worst droughts since record-keeping began well over a century ago. This, along with other climate change factors, such as reduced snowpack and warmer temperatures, caused the wildfire season to advance significantly. Flash flooding tanked major infrastructure in New York City. Videos surfaced of working-class and impoverished New Yorkers attempting to wade through waist-high sewage water just to get into the Subway, some wearing garbage bags around their legs. If our legislators continue to ignore and evade critical environmental issues, these severe weather patterns only promise to become the norm. Flash flooding, droughts, wildfires, failing infrastructure, pandemics — all symptoms of a sick planet.

Call (202-224-3121) or email your representatives and tell them to pass a comprehensive climate plan now. 

This issue goes beyond party lines. Our legislators must come together to ensure the United States is doing everything in its power to reverse the damage done to our planet by decades of rampant, natural resource exploitation.

To be clear, It is not the wealthy that will suffer most from these devastations — that burden will largely be shouldered by working-class families and marginalized communities. When life becomes untenable for the majority of the population, the ultra-rich will retreat to luxury bunkers that have been in the works for years.

Call (202-224-3121) or email your representatives and demand they prioritize climate action and pass meaningful climate initiatives! Remind them that the future of Earth depends on it.
