… you believe that the climate change crisis threatens life on this planet and our country’s promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If you do believe this, you’re part of a growing majority that knows we need our government to act boldly on climate, and we’re asking you to take 5 minutes to contact your senators now.
