An alarming new scientific report shows that the impacts of climate change are getting worse — and happening faster than previously thought.
An alarming new scientific report from the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) shows that the impacts of climate change are getting worse — and happening faster than previously thought.
We’re seeing raging wildfires, massive floods, extreme heat, tropical cyclones, and killer storms, all supercharged by climate change. This report underscores that leaders around the world must take swift, decisive action to combat the climate crisis.
The U.S. Senate recently passed a bipartisan infrastructure bill that includes some climate provisions. And while it’s a step in the right direction, it’s nowhere near what we need to combat the climate crisis.
Congress must pass a second bill — a budget reconciliation bill — that will fully deliver the bold action we need on climate change, clean energy and electric vehicles, safe drinking water, and equitable job creation, all of which are key elements of President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda.
We have a short, critical window to push Congress to resist the fossil fuel industry’s pressure. Letters sent to their offices will make a difference. They’ll come right as lawmakers are thinking about how important climate action is to their constituents — that’s us.
We still have time to avert climate catastrophe, but that window is closing.
