I just sent a message asking my members of Congress to fight global warming by supporting two new bills that could help stop global warming. Will you join me?
Send an Earth Day message about these crucial global warming bills to your members of Congress. The consequences of unchecked climate change could be devastating. If we don't act now, we could face:
- * The loss of up to 50% of all species on Earth. As oceans continue to warm, thousands of species will face extinction - not just the polar bear.
- * More frequent, more intense heat waves like the 2003 tragedy that killed 30,000 people in Western Europe.
- * Increased droughts and wildfires, especially in the Western U.S.
- * Increased flooding in coastal regions as sea levels rise. If seas rise by 80 feet, 50 million Americans could lose their homes.
Urge your members of Congress to take the first step to fight global warming by supporting these bills.
I'm really glad I spoke up, and I think you will be, too. Thanks for your help and Happy Earth Day!
