There’s sad news coming from the climate talks taking place at the United Nations, this week, but I’ve learned that I am not powerless and I can help change it. You can too!
According to the New York Times:
Officials of several European countries have cited what they see as a lack of political will on the part of the United States to adequately address climate change. The American reluctance to accept any agreement that would require legally binding and internationally enforceable targets for reductions in greenhouse gas emissions could doom the [negotiations due to take place in Copenhagen in December], they said.
I’m not happy about this at all. This is not leadership.
So here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to use this cool 1Sky tool that automatically rings my congresspeople and connects me by phone. I’m going to tell them I want the United States to be a leader in the Copenhagen negotiations and in building a renewable energy economy.
