Friendly Persuasion on Climate Change
We have come to see climate change as one of the greatest challenges to our efforts to promote sustainable development and reduce global poverty.... By mid-century, more than a billion people will face water shortages and hunger, including 600 million in Africa alone. Weather extremes, food and water scarcity, and climate related public health threats are projected to displace between 150 million and one billion people as climate change unfolds.Our Quaker friends at FCNL have put out a call for action on the pending Lieberman - Warner Climate Security Act (FCNL = Friends Committee on National Legislation). Mari just sent me an e-mail and so I am letting you all know - so you can all support the effort.
What can you do?
Please contact your senators.
Urge them to strengthen the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act of 2008 (S.3036) by:The debate starts next week - so act now!
