Despite all the evidence about the reality of climate change — despite the very real and very destructive impacts we’re already seeing — Congress has so far failed to do anything about it. They’ve been lulled to sleep through this crisis by polluting special interests and dirty money.
But not all politicians are rotten. A few of them are wide awake, and they’re banding together to make some noise in the Senate chamber. Tonight, March 10th, a small group of Senators — we’ll call them the “climate caucus” — is staying up all night to discuss climate action.
While they’re staying #Up4Climate, we can help send a message: it’s time for Congress to wake up to the reality of climate change, and it’s past time to take action. We’ll bring your mesages to Capitol Hill this evening, so that the climate caucus knows we have their back… and their colleagues know we’re watching.
No more hitting that snooze button, Congress! The American people want action now.
Just this afternoon, more than 10,000 people have called on Congress to take action on climate change.
