Time for the House to Act on Global Warming

A major report on global warming released on June 16 concludes that global warming is real, it is human caused, and we must take action now to address it.  This multi-agency science report makes clear the time for debate is long past.  Simply put: it is time for ACTION.

The first opportunity comes next week when the House is expected to vote on the American Clean Energy and Security Act (H.R. 2454), sponsored by Representatives Waxman (D-CA) and Markey (D-MA).

America's forests, rivers, oceans, and wild lands, so important to wildlife, are critical to human health as well, providing clean air and water, and capturing and storing global warming pollution. To avoid the worst impacts predicted in this report, safeguarding our natural resources is more important now than ever.

We must convince those still wavering in the House to vote for this bill. You can edit this letter and contact your congressional representative now. Thank you.
