U.S. #ClimateEmergency Declaration
On July 9th, 2019, we had a huge breakthrough.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Senator Bernie Sanders, and Representative Earl Blumenauer introduced a national Climate Emergency Declaration.
The Climate Emergency Declaration expresses the need for a “economically just and managed phase-out” of fossil fuels and calls for a “national, social, industrial, and economic mobilization” to “halt, reverse, mitigate, and prepare” for the climate crisis and save our world.
Science and lived experience indicates that this is exactly the scale of action we need to take on the climate emergency — but it won’t be an easy win. The Climate Emergency Declaration will need A LOT more support from members of Congress to pass. That’s where you can make a difference.
