Imagine hundreds of thousands of calls flooding Congressional phone lines.

That is what LCV and our coalition partners plan to generate today—Earth Day—to demand action on global warming.

As the global warming crisis continues to worsen, Congress still has not passed any comprehensive legislation to solve it. That is why LCV has partnered with our friends at the Earth Day Network on the Call for Climate campaign to generate an unprecedented number of calls to Congress this Earth Day to issue a wake-up call that they can’t ignore.

Will you take a few minutes to add your voice to this extraordinary effort?

Here is the information you need to take action:

WHO: Contact your senators and representative: call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for your senators’ and/or representative’s office.
WHEN: TODAY, Tuesday, April 22
WHAT TO SAY: Tell the legislative staffer who answers that:

* As a constituent, I am calling to ask that Congress take action now on the most serious environmental problem we face: global warming.

* The global warming crisis is continuing to worsen, and scientists have warned that if we don’t act now, some of the worst effects are less than ten years away.

* In order to make a real difference, we must enact legislation that reduces global warming pollution 80% by 2050.

After you have made your calls, please hit reply to this message and let us know how they went. Thank you once again for all you do for the Earth.
