Support the Green New Deal!
The time to take action on climate change was yesterday. As of late, there have been a countless number of “dire climate change warning reports,” from the U.N. report to those issued by our own government. All are similar: we’ve done irreversible damage to our planet, and if we don’t take radical, and immediate action right now, we’ll be facing an apocalypse really soon.
The Green New Deal is a new plan put together by a youth-led climate group, the Sunrise Movement. It establishes a committee with the authority to create a “detailed national, industrial, economic mobilization plan” allowing the U.S. to swiftly become carbon-neutral–all in under a decade.
As young people, we will be the ones facing the consequences of a changing climate. We’ve got to harness support for every policy effort that proposes real action to prevent climate change–and the Green New Deal is just that. 18 Congressmen have already committed to supporting the plan. Now, let’s get every other rep on board.
Tell legislators: Support the Green New Deal! We deserve a livable, fossil-free future.
Our climate is changing fast, and our generation will be the ones to face the consequences. We need solutions–now. The Green New Deal provides a detailed plan allowing the U.S. to swiftly become carbon-neutral. Tell your reps to support!
