Sign the petition and call on Congress NOW to heed the science — and the dire urgency of climate action — and invest in our communities by pushing for clean energy and infrastructure that will mitigate the climate crisis and withstand its worst impacts.
Target: U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives
Dear lawmakers: The Senate's bipartisan infrastructure package will get us part of the way there, but it falls far short of what we need to address the dire urgency of the climate crisis.
A distressing new report from the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) underscores why policymakers everywhere must take swift, decisive action to combat the rising dangers of global climate change. We must slash climate pollution, speed up the transition to clean energy, and safeguard our most vulnerable communities.
As the IPCC report shows, climate change is here and getting worse. We still have time to avert catastrophe, but that window is closing.
Please seize this moment by rebuilding our infrastructure, creating jobs, expanding clean energy, and doing what is necessary to combat the climate crisis and build healthy communities.
