Climate Action Call Script


Hello, My name is {Insert your name} I live in {town/state/zip code}. I am a climate activist.

This pandemic has shown that massive mobilization against grave threats is possible and, when we have stopped Covid-19, we will be ready to stop the destruction of our planet.   Now is the time to ensure climate action is addressed as we recover and move forward beyond Covid-19. 

I urge you to use this time to think about what we are facing if the Earth continues to warm:  shortages of food and drinking water, mass extinctions of plant and animal life, and millions driven from their homes by rising sea levels, drought, famine and fire.  To re-think what must be done about this.

As your constituent, I want leadership, courage and action.  I urge you to begin working now to revive our economy by making it a green recovery, with zero carbon emissions by 2050.
