8 Months.

That's how long legislation to limit global warming pollution has been sitting idle in the Senate. After the House of Representatives passed the bill last June, Senators have spent months just figuring out if it's something they should consider. The Senate is more likely to vote on weakening the Clean Air Act in the next month than on passing a clean energy and green jobs law.

We think a wake up call is in order.
That's why Climate Solutions is joining with dozens of organizations representing millions of people and participating in "72 Hours for Clean American Power" call-in to U.S. Senators today through Thursday. The goal is to flood the Senate with calls for real immediate progress on global warming.

And your call couldn’t come at a better time.  Just last Thursday Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid demanded a climate bill ASAP.  That’s a step in the right direction.  But we need you to demonstrate public support for getting this done, and getting it done NOW.

Be part of this nationwide call to action for our senators so they know they have a mandate from their constituents!

Please take a minute right now to call your senators and tell them “work to stop Senator Lisa Murkowski's efforts to weaken the Clean Air Act, and ensure we pass comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation immediately.”
WA - Senator Cantwell: (202) 224-3441 and Senator Murray: (202) 224-2621
OR - Senator Merkely: (202) 224-3753 and Senator Wyden: (202) 224-5244
MT - Senator Baucus: (202) 224-2651 and Senator Tester: (202) 224-2644
ID - Senator Crapo: (202) 224-6142 and Senator Risch: (202) 224-2752
Other states - Capitol switchboard: (202) 224-3121
And please tell us you called
Beth Doglio, Climate Solutions Campaign Director

P.S. Please forward to your friends across the country and urge them to call their respective senators with the same message.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
