Fw: Tell Your Senators: Support Action on Global Warming
- ---------- Forwarded Message ----------
Leaders from around the world are meeting right now in Montreal
on new steps to cut the pollution that is causing global
warming. They are beginning the crucial discussion about how the
Kyoto Protocol will work in the next phase of its
implementation, beyond the year 2012.
Unfortunately, the Bush Administration is not only keeping the
US from joining in these negotiations, it is also actively
working to undermine talks among other nations, halting global
progress on post-2012 plans. Instead of joining with the world
to build a solution, the US is blocking the Montreal
negotiations. The US needs to lead the world, not obstruct
progress on this important issue.
It's time for the U.S. to join the world in recognizing the
promise of clean energy solutions. We can solve global warming
with today's technology. We just need real leadership from our
representatives in Washington. It is time for the Bush
Administration to quit stonewalling and for the U.S. Senate to
pass legislation that will place real limits on global warming
WHAT TO DO
Contact your Senators and urge them to speak out publicly to
support positive U.S. action in Montreal and for mandatory
action to slow, stop and reverse global warming pollution in the
U.S. Ask them to send a message to the White House to let the
Kyoto Protocol move forward and to stop blocking negotiations
for global action in Kyoto's next phase after 2012.

----THIS LETTER WILL BE SENT IN YOUR NAME----
Dear [decision maker name automatically inserted here],
I am writing you to urge you to take action to engage the United
States in the important climate negotiations in Montreal. Action
at the local, state, national and international levels is needed
to address this, one of the single greatest challenges of our
generation. I am outraged that the Bush Administration is
blocking progress in international action to reduce global
warming pollution. Please lead our country in the right
1. Speak out publicly to support positive U.S. action in
Montreal. Please hold a press conference, make a Floor
statement, and sign on to Congressional statements in
recognition of this issue's importance.
2. Support legislation for mandatory action to slow, stop and
reverse global warming pollution in the U.S.
3. Call on the White House to let the Kyoto Protocol move
forward and to stop blocking negotiations for global action in
Kyoto's next phase after 2012.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the National
Academy of Sciences have concluded that the continued buildup of
global warming pollution in the atmosphere threatens the
stability of the global climate, threatening the economy, public
health and the environment of the United States and the world.
I'm counting on you to protect American families by supporting
global progress on this critical issue.
It's time that the U.S. takes the lead.
