PRESIDENT TRUMP--STAY WITH THE PARIS AGREEMENT

Wednesday, May 24, is the day that President Trump met with Pope Francis. It's also the second anniversary of Laudato Si, the Pope's encyclical on care for "Our common Home."

President Trump is considering withdrawing from the Paris Agreement, the strongest climate agreement we have on a global level, we must take action to ensure that the U.S. honors its international commitments and protects the earth for generations to come.

Trump's decision will come in a matter of days so we must act now to save the Paris Agreement. In 2015, 195 nations and the European Union signed the Agreement to limit the increase of the global average temperature to well below 2 degrees C above pre-industrial levels. In Laudato Si, Pope Francis called on the world's leaders to come together to protect the gift of our common home.

YOUR SENATORS CAN STOP THIS

Recently, the House of Representatives voted to halt limits on dangerous methane pollution. The Senate will soon have a chance to vote, and we're hoping they will vote against it. But we need your help.

Will you contact your two Senators and urge them to vote against any bill coming to them that halts limits on methane use? 2016 was the hottest year on record and rising methane emissions are responsible for about a quarter of that increased warming. Who's responsible for this rise in methane? Oil and gas companies!

The Senate has a chance to put the interest of Americans ahead of oil and gas companies, but they need to hear from us. They must vote against stopping methane limits which the Bureau of Land Management now has in place. Urge them to block limits on dangerous methane pollution, which is a very dangerous greenhouse gas. Stop leaking methane into the environment from leaks and flaring especially on our public lands. There are industries in the United States that offer cost-effective services to companies to find and fix methane gas leaks. Oil and gas companies must take advantage of these services.

Thank you for taking action on this issue by contacting your Senators.
