What is missing that could break the gridlock on Climate Change?
The unified voice of the Elders!
We are a campaign, a movement of elders committed to making our voices heard...to change our nation’s energy policies while there is still time to avoid catastrophic changes in the Earth’s climate.
Because of this concern and because we are the largest voting bloc, we elders are in an unique position to influence national policy and can use that power to push for policies that will reduce greenhouse gases to a level consistent with life thriving on our planet.
Don't Let Scott Pruitt Kill The Clean Power Plan
Full implementation of the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Power Plan has been one of Elders Climate Action's top two priorities since our beginning.
That's because carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from existing power plants constitute our largest source of the greenhouse gases that create climate change, and are not regulated at all without the Clean Power Plan.
But now, the Clean Power Plan, and all EPA action to address air pollution, are at great risk: Scott Pruitt, a former Oklahoma Attorney General who has vigorously opposed the Clean Power Plan and virtually every other program of the EPA to protect our environment, has been nominated to be the new head of the EPA!
The vote to approve the nomination of this enemy of environmental protection will be close. Now is the time to speak up! Please click the button below to send a letter to your two US Senators. Strengthen your voice by adding your own words about why taking action against climate change is important to you. We suggest mentioning your concern for your grandchildren or other children you care about.
Then when you have sent your message, please forward this email to everyone you know who cares about our responsibility to future generations.
Act quickly, as Pruitt's nomination hearing will begin on January 18th, so time is of the essence.
ELDERS CLIMATE ACTION DAY IS COMING!
April 2017 in Washington DC!
Elders Climate Action Day in Washington, DC - More Important than Ever!
The recent election does not need to dash our hopes. Instead, it is an invitation to build a national movement to address Global Warming. We, as elders, have a vital role in the success of that movement.
None of us need be an expert on Climate Change to make a difference; we just need to demonstrate our determination and commitment to our children, grandchildren and continued life on planet Earth. We are the elders, we have patience, passion, and wisdom and we care deeply about future generations.
This year our Elders Climate Action Day will be the formal kickoff for a series of ECAD events around the country. We hope to have community events in a location near you beginning in the summer of 2017.
JOIN US IN MAY AND BE A PART OF THE MOVEMENT THAT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN CLIMATE CHANGE!
We are planning Elders Climate Action Day 2017 and we want to hear from you! Based on input from some of our members, we have put together a short survey. Please click HERE and tell us what you would like to have on the ECAD 2017 program this spring.
