The day before yesterday we launched a #ClimateSilence twitter storm targeting mainstream media, urging them to connect the dots between climate change and hurricane Irma...
It was a huge success! Together we got the #ClimateSilence hashtag to become one of the top trends in the United States and reached almost 40 million people, more people than the entire viewership of the top 3 networks. It’s a good reminder that when we raise our voices together, we can reach tens of millions of people across the country.
We also have to keep raising our voices to Congress, reminding them that climate denial is deadly. Send a message to your representatives asking them to condemn climate denial and commit to climate action instead.
See our longer message below and take a minute to tell your elected leaders where you stand?
Dozens of lives lost. Millions without power. Thousands homeless. These are just some of the ways we can count the cost of climate denial.
Climate change alone didn't cause Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma or the wildfires out west, but it certainly made them worse and more destructive.
These disasters are a wake up call. It's up to us to make them a turning point. It's time we hold our politicians accountable for their climate denial.
Click here to send a message directly to your member of Congress to demand they speak up about the climate crisis and support an immediate transition away from fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy for all.
Scientists have been warning us since the 1980s that burning fossil fuels would lead to global warming that would result in devastating impacts.
But thanks to relentless lobbying by the fossil fuel industry, politicians adopted a position of climate denial, putting the profits of polluters over the protection of the public.
Enough is enough. We need to transform these hurricanes into storms of public outrage: Click here to send a message to Congress and then please share this email and petition page with everyone you know.
These storms could be a turning point for climate politics in America, but only if we raise our voices together.
Let's make it unacceptable for elected officials to continue their climate denial and demand the solutions we know we need: an end to to new fossil fuels and a just transition to 100% renewable energy for all.
