Make "Climate Change, Global Warming and Saving the Planet" Our Top Priority

The most respected scientific organizations have stated unequivocally that global warming is happening, and people are causing it by burning fossil fuels and cutting down forests.  The consequences of continued warming at current rates are likely to be dire.

Many densely populated areas, such as low-lying coastal regions, are highly vulnerable to climate shifts.  A middle-of-the-range projection is that the homes of 13 to 88 million people around the world would be flooded by the sea each year in the 2080s. 

Poorer countries and small island nations will have the hardest time adapting.  Scarcity of water and food could lead to major conflicts with broad ripple effects throughout the globe. 

Even if people find a way to adapt, the wildlife and plants on which we depend may be unable to adapt to rapid climate change. While the world itself will not end, the world as we know it may disappear. 

It’s time we make “Climate Change, Global Warming, and Saving the Planet” this country’s top priority!  Ask the new Congress to act now to protect our sacred earth.  If we don’t accomplish this, all other problems and concerns won’t matter.

Dear Congressperson,

With the beginning of a new year and a new Congress, I'm writing to urge you to make “Climate Change, Global Warming, and Saving the Planet” this country’s top priority!  We all need to act now to protect our sacred earth. If we don’t accomplish this, all other problems and concerns won’t matter.

Finding ways to stop global warming and to reduce climate change must receive our highest commitment and dedication.  One of the solutions may be promoting and supporting clean and renewable energy, but it can’t be limited to just that.  Please start the new year and the new Congress off with a positive note -- make the planet our top priority -- for our future!

Thank you.
