Tell Congress to Prioritize Climate Action

As the new Congress is sworn in, it has the opportunity to grab some early wins on climate while continuing to build towards a more comprehensive policy. Let your Representative know that they must make strong climate action a priority.

Dear your U.S. representative,

Congress must act with urgency in three areas to advance climate action:

  • 1. Hold formal hearings on the latest climate science developments and establish a plan for how to respond. The House has not held any in-depth hearings on the growing impacts of climate change on American communities since 2010. The last eight years have produced a rash of new data on impacts to farms, coastal communities and public health that deserves a full airing, including a comprehensive report issued by US scientists in November 2018.

  • 2. Champion bills that prioritize incentives for climate-friendly infrastructure, including electric vehicles and renewable energy storage, and increase funding for renewable energy research and deployment, and sustainable land use practices and land conservation.

  • 3. Foster a robust, public debate on designing a long-term climate policy for America anchored with a strong carbon price. House members can help illuminate the relative costs, benefits and transformational impact of different policy tools—from a regulatory system to a carbon fee, cap and trade, and investment in innovation.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]
