Read the Green New Deal resolution.

Worried about climate change? Think cutting greenhouse gas emissions and creating green jobs sounds like a good idea? Think we need a big, bold vision of how to protect people from climate catastrophe?

 

Here’s what you can do:

 

CALL CONGRESS FOR A GREEN NEW DEAL!

The Green New Deal is the ONLY vision on the table that matches the scale of the climate crisis. Not only is it popular among voters --- more than 70% of likely Iowa caucus-goers polled support it --- but it is also NECESSARY. We have only TEN years to cut global carbon emissions in order to ward off the worst climate change consequences like starvation, storms, flooding, and drought.

 

Almost the entire Democratic Congressional delegation from New York already supports the Green New Deal--- EXCEPT for Senator Chuck Schumer, Reps. Hakeem Jeffries, Max Rose, and Kathleen Rice (all three of whom represent especially climate vulnerable districts), Antonio Delgado, Paul Tonko, Anthony Brindisi,  and Joe Morelle.

 

Call your senator and your member of Congress if they are not yet a supporter, tell them it’s time for climate leadership and ask what they’re waiting for. You can also tweet at them, write a letter or request a meeting!

Will Senator ________/ Rep. _________cosponsor the Resolution for a Green New Deal?  Why hasn’t he/she supported it or offered an equally aggressive plan of his/her own? ◀︎
