Stop the GOP's planet-busting budget
Congress is at it again, doing whatever they can to block President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from fighting climate change. Both the House and Senate introduced appropriations bills to slash the budgets we need to fight climate change. Worse yet, these bills also include policy riders that would block the president's clean power plan and reduce states' ability to monitor air quality.
Congress won't listen to research, like the EPA report that shows action on climate change saves lives and billions of dollars. They won't listen to His Holiness, Pope Francis, whose recent climate change encyclical makes a moral plea to combat global warming. And we know they won't listen to 97 percent of scientists, who confirm that human-induced climate change is real and demands immediate action.
But we know who they will listen to -- YOU. Use this page to contact your Representative and Senators and tell them to vote "No" on any appropriations bill that weakens our ability to fight climate change.
