Join Kyra Sedgwick -- Urge Congress to Stop Global Warming


"We can choose a better future -- based on clean energy and clean jobs. Tell Congress to act now on global warming -- before the climate crisis brings our planet even one degree closer to destroying our future." -- Kyra Sedgwick

Research indicates that a rise of just two degrees Centigrade in global temperatures would expose millions of people to drought, hunger and flooding.

As we hover a mere two degrees from this irreversible damage, Congress needs to pass legislation that:

* Sets enforceable deadlines to cut global warming pollution by 80% by 2050,
* Dramatically increases the production of more fuel-efficient vehicles and cleaner fuels, and
* Requires utilities to generate 25% of their electricity from renewable sources such as wind, solar, and geothermal power.

To prevent the catastrophic outcomes of global warming, tell Congress to act now by passing tough global warming legislation.

The world's leading scientists are now agreed that:

* Global warming is a clear threat to the entire planet, including current and future generations of humankind,

* Allowing temperatures to rise more than another 2 degrees Fahrenheit threatens to trigger the irreversible melting of the Greenland ice sheet, a 20-foot rise in sea levels, and the extinction of species,

* Our only chance to avert such catastrophic outcomes is to act now to reduce global warming pollution,

* Stabilizing the world's climate demands that current levels of U.S. global warming pollution be cut 25% by 2020 and 80% by 2050.

I therefore call on you to pass urgently-needed legislation that will:

1. CUT GLOBAL WARMING POLLUTION 25% by 2020 and 80% by 2050 - with enforceable deadlines.

2. MOVE AMERICA BEYOND OIL by promoting the widespread adoption of fuel-efficient vehicles, clean fuels and public transit that turn down the heat on global warming.

3. RENEW OUR ENERGY FUTURE by rewarding energy efficiency and requiring utilities to generate 25 percent of their electricity from zero-pollution, renewable sources like wind, solar and geothermal power.
