Gratitude and Our Best Hope

I’m over the Moon to report that my Member of Congress, Rep. Mike Levin (D-49), has just joined an ever-growing field of policymakers to Cosponsor the Energy Innovation Act.  Pricing carbon nationally in this socially just, and incredibly effective way is the biggest step we can take to significantly drop U.S. emissions quickly, and encourage other countries to do the same. It’s stronger than the Paris Accord, stronger than the Clean Power Plan, and it will lower carbon emissions far more than existing and pending EPA regulations. It protects family incomes, public health, and it creates jobs. When pollution goes down, economies rise. It’s exactly what we need right now. Please call, tweet (@MikeLevinCA), email, FB, Instagram, Mike to thank him for leading on climate. And urge your Congress member to do the same!

A Shared Call To Action

I’ve recently returned from Mentoring a huge Climate Reality Leadership training in Atlanta where we focused on social and environmental justice. Three mindblowing days with scientists, activists, policymakers, and compassionate changemakers. Among them, I joyfully ran into the wise-for-his-years, adorable, and incredibly well-spoken, youngest plaintiff of the renowned climate change lawsuit, “Our Children’s Trust”, Levy Draheim (pictured above).  From the stirring evening of “A Moral Call to Action” in ML King’s Ebenezer Baptist Church with Rev. William Barber II and The Poor People’s Campaign, to Al Gore’s newest live climate presentation, to hearing from victims of environmental poisoning, cancer alleys, fracking, illegal coal ash dumping, and more. It was both staggering and inspirational.
I came back with a renewed desire to do all we can to improve our climate crisis, and I can’t think of a more effective and wide sweeping solution than the  (HR763) Check it out and please urge your Congress member to Co-Sponsor it now.

“60 Minutes” Got It Right

Please contact CBS’ 60 Minutes with a great big THANK YOU for last Sunday evening’s story on one of the most important lawsuits of our time, “Our Children’s’ Trust”. So glad the media finally covered something that environmentalists have known for decades. Not only did the President’ s Science advisor (UCSD’s own) Roger Revelle, warn Lyndon Johnson of the dangers of too much CO2 in our atmosphere in 1965, LBJ turned right around and warned Congress. It was Congress that did little to nothing. Btw, Roger Revelle just happened to teach a bright young student, Al Gore, way back when.

Speaking of Al Gore, I’m overjoyed to share a few days with him, Reverend William Barber, scientists, activists, and over 2,000 of our newest friends, while Mentoring at the Climate Reality Project Leadership in Atlanta, GA this March.

It’s easy and oh so necessary to thank “60 Minutes”. Just click here…

America’s Climate Solution

There’s wonderful news on the climate front – and in Congress no less! Can you imagine U.S. carbon emissions dropping by 40% within 12 years?

Yes, you’ve read that correctly… There’s a newly introduced bipartisan climate bill, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Actand it’s manna from Heaven (it will be reintroduced early in the 116th Congress). This socially just, truly effective climate bill, which Citizens’ Climate Lobby has been working toward for 11 years, is a real gamechanger. And it has a strong chance of becoming national law if we unite to support it. Please check it out, spread the word and support it. Many Thanks!
