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.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! ACT NOW!
This year, we Americans will be electing a new president, a third of the Senate and the entire House of Representatives. If we are to hope to make significant progress after the election, we must do everything we can to raise the issue of climate change in the election campaign. That responsibility falls especially to elders, who throughout human history are the people who have had a long view and commitment to future generations. Just as Iroquois elders called for attention to the seventh generation, so must elders today speak out on behalf of the grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Guiding Principle for the ECA Congressional Climate Project
This campaign is a part of Elders Climate Action's long term commitment to achieving national policies that will reverse the accumulation of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere in time to preserve a livable planet for the grandchildren and all life. Therefore a critical goal for us is to create relationships of respect and appreciation with all members of Congress so we can work effectively with them after the election. We do not endorse candidates, nor express preferences for candidates. We simply urge ALL candidates to commit to action on climate change.
To accomplish that, we need elders in as many Congressional districts as possible to participate. Future generations are depending on all of us!
