Whether your particular Congressional representatives have expressed support for actions to combat global warming, or they’ve decided to ignore the problem or even to oppose solutions, it is critical they hear constantly from their constituents on this issue.
Contact your Senators and Representative now to let them know you support strong efforts to combat global warming, and that you demand legislation and policy that commits the nation to playing a lead role in solving the climate crisis.
Personal letters sent by mail receive the most attention at Congressional offices. However, you can also email your letter directly. Use our look-up function on this page to find your elected officials and their contact information. To be most effective, your letter should be brief and should convey your personal commitment to fighting climate change. You can select from the points below, but it is best to use your own words whenever possible.
SUGGESTED TALKING POINTS:
• Climate change is one of the most serious threats to society, the environment, and biodiversity worldwide.
Dear Honorable [Congressperson’s name],
I am writing to urge you to take strong measures to curb greenhouse gas emissions and reduce global warming. Global climate change is one of the most serious threats facing the environment, the nation, and the world today. The solutions will require serious changes in our policies, our nation, and our daily lives. I support taking every opportunity to combat global warming and urge you to support legislation that does the same. Delay is not tolerable and inaction is not an option.
