ACT NOW: Congress votes on global warming budget this week!
March 30, 2009
Thanks to your efforts this week, both the House and Senate Budget Committees managed to fight back a serious lobbying push to strip global warming from the President's budget. This was a major hurdle, but the fight is far from over! The budget will head to the floor for a vote this week, and we have to act now.
This is such a critical vote, because without budget funding, we won't likely see global warming legislation pass this year. We can't procrastinate about global warming any longer. We MUST take bold action THIS YEAR.
We don't have much time - Congress will be voting any day now on the President's budget, including action on global warming - we have to act NOW.
Call Congress right now and tell your Representative to pass a budget that includes limits on global warming pollution. Making a call is easy, fast, and extremely effective. Simply follow the steps below:
1) Call (202) 224-3121 .
2) Ask the operator to put you through to your Representative's office. If you don't know who your Representative is, then give the operator your zip code and they will let you know and put you through.
3) Someone will either answer the phone or you will be able to leave a message. Here's what you can say:
"I urge the Representative to support the President's budget, including action to cap global warming pollution."
4) Let us know that you made the call by clicking the button below.
Greenpeace activists just like you have already sent more than 34,500 letters to Congress urging them to keep action on global warming pollution in the budget. With the vote coming up any day now, we need you to go a step further and call now. Please make your voice heard today.
For our future,
