HURRICANES, WILDFIRES--CLIMATE SILENCE

We've all seen it. Multiple hurricanes and wildfires, but no talk about climate change. Is the media being told to stay out of the issue of climate change by deniers? Why isn't climate being mentioned?

These escalating disasters must be a wake up call to all of us, a catalyst to connect the dots between extreme weather events, climate change, and the cause--the fossil fuel industry. Why can't we have a discussion about what is behind these storms? An honest discussion!

If you tweet (#ClimateSilence), use Facebook, or can contact your elected officials, now is the time to get involved. Demand that the media ends the deafening climate silence by asking the questions that need to be asked and telling the stories that need to be told.

We know that climate is impacting extreme weather. Science has said that for years. We don't need to have that discussion again. What we need is a discussion about what we're going to do about it. We need to end public support for fossil fuels and keep them where they belong--in the ground. We need to go renewable--wind, solar. Fossil fuel companies need to get out of politics and financially supporting climate deniers. Our planet needs help. Will you help by posting this on social media and/or contacting your elected officials?

NO RETALIATION FOR DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR EMPLOYEES

Department of Interior employees are being reassigned after speaking out about the impacts of climate change on Alaska Native communities. This is illegal and Secretary
Ryan Zinke must stop the practice.

Fifty top managers have experienced this and only after a whistleblower came forward has it come to the forefront. Please act by contacting Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke. Demand that Secretary Zinke stop these reassignments of people who have knowledge of climate change and aren't afraid to speak it.

Secretary Zinke can be reached with the following information:

Secretary Ryan Zinke
Department of Interior
1849 C Street NW
Washington, DC 20240

Phone: 202-208-3100

Thanks for speaking up!

STOP MITCH MCCONNELL'S DIRTY ENERGY BILL

Mitch McConnell is fast tracking his dirty energy bill through the Senate. We need to contact our Senators and tell them to reject S 1460, the Energy and Natural Resources Act of 2017. This bill increases fracking and our dependence on fossil fuels and further exacerbates the climate crisis.

McConnell's bill would make the oil execs richer, lock us in to oil pipelines, and keep us dependent on fossil fuels for many years to come. There is no mention of solar or wind in the bill. McConnell knows this is very unpopular so he wants to fast track it through the Senate.

His bill would also approve liquefied natural gas export terminals. This would increase fracking around the United States. It would give more power to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which would sanction new natural gas projects. Lastly, it would funnel millions of dollars into research for methane hydrates under the ocean floor. We must take action NOW by contacting our two Senators.

Obviously, we should be developing renewables, not dirty fossil fuels. Please get involved by contacting your Senators. Thanks for taking action.
