Irreplaceable: Wildlife in a Warming World

The question is simple - Can we protect the incredible diversity of life that has been entrusted to us? We have hope, because people like you are standing up and carrying out your convictions. People from all walks of life, united in their belief that the world can change if we care enough.

We are gathering signatures from individuals and organizations all over the country, in a true Call to Care about wildlife in a warming world. When you sign, we will deliver the Call to Care to your members of Congress. We also will present the final letter to key decision-makers, urging them to consider the plight of these plants and animals seriously––and start taking action to save them. Will you join us?

"When I hear of the destruction of a species, I feel just as if all the works of some great writer have perished." -- Theodore Roosevelt

ACTION ALERT

Efficiency: Clean, Cheap—and Here Today


One of President Obama's first acts was to call for a revolution in energy efficiency. Simply by making our appliances and electronics use less energy, Americans can save money, create jobs and fight global warming. Efficiency is the fastest, cleanest and cheapest energy source.

It's not just about changing light bulbs. It's about setting benchmarks to make all the products we use more efficient. Adopting strong national energy efficiency standards could save consumers $16 billion a year in utility bills by 2030.

That's where the President needs your help.

President Obama directed the Department of Energy (DOE) to review appliance standards for the appliances that will save the most energy and the most money. In the coming months, standards will be reviewed for refrigerators, clothes washers, air conditioners, water heaters, and even drink vending machines. To start, DOE is currently considering standards for fluorescent tube lights that, over the next 30 years, could save enough energy to power every household in America for a year.

And that's not all:

» Adopting the strongest achievable efficiency standards for all appliances to be reviewed would eliminate the need for 200 new power plants.

» These standards would cut emissions of 150 million metric tons of global warming gases each year.

» Achieving President Obama's goal of cutting Americans' use of electricity by 15%, plus cutting natural gas use by 10%, would create 222,000 permanent net jobs by 2020.

It's a no-brainer. But lobbyists for manufacturers like General Electric, Whirlpool and Sylvania don't get it. They argue that the weak economy means we can't afford to make our appliances more efficient—when the truth is we can't afford not to.

Tell Energy Secretary Steven Chu to stand up to those who would hold America back. The more comments DOE receives from ordinary Americans in support of efficiency, the more they'll be encouraged to set ambitious standards.

Are you ready to become a citizen of the United States of Efficiency?

ACTION ALERT

Help Save America's Last Wild Forests

President Barack Obama has been a strong supporter of the Roadless Area Conservation Rule, a popular environmental policy that preserves 58.5 million acres of inventoried roadless areas in our national forests. But after repeated attempts by the Bush administration to undercut its protections, the rule's status is uncertain. Consequently, some of our country's most pristine national forests are at risk.

We ask you to call for an immediate "time out" on road-building and other activities in our undeveloped national forestlands -- including Alaska's Tongass National Forest -- until the necessary steps can be taken to fully reinstate the roadless rule. Such action would be consistent with President Obama's support for the policy and ensure these areas are not threatened until more permanent protection can be implemented.

Roadless areas are a vital part of our national forests. They provide clean drinking water for millions of Americans, critical habitat for fish and wildlife, and offer recreational opportunities for our families. They should be protected, because once they're gone, they're gone forever.

Download and distribute your copies of the EPA's FAQs About Global Warming and Climate Change. I usually print out maybe a dozen or two of things like this and take them to the library.

@ Sylvain: Good idea. I'll read that one when I get a sec. But I think you could leave it for two weeks, since few people visit regularly, I think.
