The world’s leading scientists warn that we have 12 years to tackle the climate crisis or risk global catastrophe. This is the real national emergency that needs our immediate attention, but politicians like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his allies are trying to stop any progress on climate solutions.
This year, millions of people stood up and demanded bold, transformational change to stop the single greatest threat facing our planet with the introduction of a congressional resolution on the Green New Deal. This far-reaching policy proposal is a first step on the road to a detailed plan for Congress to confront the climate crisis.
The Green New Deal lays out a bold vision for getting to zero emissions and 100 percent clean energy — a vision that ensures that everyone benefits from a clean energy economy, including workers and the communities most affected by pollution. We need you to urge your senators to cosponsor the Deal.
Senator McConnell is threatening to rush a disingenuous vote on the Green New Deal resolution, knowing that his majority of billionaire-backed fossil fuel cronies will block its passage. He’s trying to squash this uprising before it gains speed.
It’s up to us to show him we’re not fooled: Urge your senators to cosponsor the Green New Deal resolution.
