Tell Sen. Schumer: Be a Real Climate Leader and Support the Green New Deal!

Sign the Petition

Your letter will be delivered to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer:

The science is clear – climate impacts are mounting rapidly, and meaningful action is needed more than ever. Real climate leadership means taking immediate action to wind down the fossil fuel industry and its influence on our politics, ramping up investment in renewables and a clean energy economy for all, and protecting communities from the impacts of the transition.

That’s why I’m asking you to sign on in support of the Green New Deal resolutions introduced in Congress this month by Sen. Ed Markey and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Showing your support for solutions that act at the scale and ambition of the climate crisis is a critical step towards breaking the fossil fuel industry’s stranglehold on our political system, and we need your bold leadership on this issue.

    The science is clear – we need a courageous Green New Deal that prioritizes a managed decline of fossil fuel production and bold measures to support communities in moving swiftly to a cleaner, more just and equitable economy.

    The latest update from DC: Sen. Mitch McConnell – who’s received millions from the fossil fuel industry over the years – has announced that he will bring the Green New Deal resolution up for a vote in the Senate soon. His plan is to try to sabotage the Green New Deal, and we won’t let him.

    Twin resolutions for a Green New Deal were introduced earlier this month by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in the House and Sen. Ed Markey in the Senate. These resolutions include bold and important proposals that start to reflect the scope and scale of actions that the climate crisis requires.

    The current resolutions lack explicit language addressing fossil fuel extraction, but the sponsors have expressed an intention for a wind-down of fossil fuel production to be included as a part of more specific Green New Deal proposals, and we look forward to working with them to actualize that imperative.

    There are already 12 Green New Deal cosponsors in the Senate. Take action today to make sure that number grows.
