Climate change is real, it is caused by human activity and it is already
causing devastating harm to the United States and countries around the world.
Yet, incredibly, we have a president who not only believes that climate
change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese government, but is pursuing
policies which makes a frightening situation even worse. Further, we have a
major political party, the Republican Party, that marches in lockstep behind
the ignorance of the president.
The debate is over. The scientific community has spoken in a virtually
unanimous voice in telling us that if we do not act boldly in transforming our
energy system away from fossil fuel and into energy efficiency and sustainable
energy, the planet we leave to our children and grandchildren will become
increasingly unhealthy and uninhabitable.
Let's be clear. Failure to act decisively will mean more drought, more
famine, more rising sea levels, more floods, more ocean acidification, more
extreme weather disturbances, more disease and more human suffering.
We cannot allow that to happen.
The good news is that we now have the knowledge and technology to
address climate change, and it starts with taking on the extraordinary power of
the fossil fuel industry and creating an international energy system that is
clean, efficient and sustainable.
We must reach zero percent in greenhouse gas emissions.
We must eliminate carbon emissions in all major parts of the economy.
We must invest in weatherizing homes and buildings, and make investments
in climate-friendly infrastructure.
We must make certain that those communities economically impacted by the
transformation of our energy system are fully protected.
We must ensure that communities of color do not bear the brunt of the
effects of climate change.
And when we do that, we can create millions of good paying jobs in every
part of our country. In other words, transforming our energy system not only
helps save the planet, it strengthens our economy.
The U.S. is the most powerful economy on earth and we must lead the
world in the fight against climate change. We can do that by passing the Green
New Deal to save the planet and create millions of new jobs.
Add your name to say you support
the Green New Deal to transform our energy system away from fossil fuels toward
sustainable energies such as wind and solar.
When it comes to taking on the imminent threat of climate change, we
cannot think small. We must enact bold solutions to save our planet from its
The fossil fuel industry is one of the most powerful political forces in
the country. They spend hundreds of millions of dollars on campaigns and
lobbying every election cycle to protect their interests, while they continue
to lie and deny the realities of climate change.
They make billions in profits by continuing to pump, refine and burn
oil, while future generations will be forced to deal with the catastrophic
consequences of climate change.
That’s why it’s critical that we pass the Green New Deal to not only
help shift our country toward energy efficiency and sustainable energy but also
create millions of jobs.
The only way this legislation will be successful is if the American
people stand up to the fossil fuel industry and make their voices heard on this
issue. So I’m asking you today:
Add your name in support of the
Green New Deal if you believe it’s past time to save our planet from the
imminent threat of climate change.
When we talk about our responsibilities as human beings and as parents,
there is nothing more important than leaving this country and the entire planet
in a way that is habitable for our kids and grandchildren.
We have an opportunity for the U.S. to be a leader in the global fight
against climate change. Thank you for being a part of this fight.
