Curb Global Warming and Protect Your Neighborhood

On Wednesday May 17, the House of Representatives will vote on the Department of Interior Appropriations Bill. Last week, the Appropriations Committee added an important resolution calling for mandatory global warming emission reductions. This week, an amendment will be offered to the bill to protect your right to know about toxic chemicals in your community. Please tell your representative to support these efforts to curb global warming and ensure your neighborhood is safe and healthy.


Subject: Please support the global warming resolution and the toxic releases right to know amendment

Dear Representative,

I am writing to urge you to support the "Sense of Congress" global warming resolution added to the Interior Appropriations Bill in committee and the Solis-Pallone Toxics Right-to-Know amendment which will be offered when the bill goes to the House floor Wednesday, May 17.

Human activity is warming our atmosphere with devastating consequences. Fortunately, solutions available now will make the world better for our children. The "Sense of Congress" resolution calls for mandatory emission reduction measures to help curb global warming. But political leadership is needed. Please help address this urgent problem by opposing efforts to strip the global warming resolution from the Interior Appropriations Bill.

Also, the House will consider an amendment to the bill that would prohibit the EPA from moving forward with a dangerous proposal to weaken the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI). For almost 20 years, the TRI program has helped to make communities around the country safer and healthier by providing critical information on the toxic chemicals released into our land, water, and air. Please protect public health by supporting the Solis-Pallone Toxics Right to Know amendment.

I look forward to hearing your position on these important issues.


What's At Stake:
On Wednesday, May 10, the House Appropriations Committee passed an Interior Appropriations bill that includes a resolution calling for mandatory global warming emission reductions. This "Sense of the Congress" resolution, which was authored by Representative Norm Dicks (D-WA), mirrors a Senate measure that passed in June 2005. Final passage of the global warming language would represent an important step forward in the House of Representatives. The “Sense of Congress” resolution in the Interior Appropriations Bill calls for mandatory emission reduction measures to help curb global warming. Global warming is one of the most serious challenges we face today. The evidence is vast and the urgency of taking action becomes clearer with every new scientific study. With continued warming, we can expect more extreme heat and drought, rising sea levels, and higher-intensity tropical storms. At risk are our coastal property and resources, the livability of our cities in summer, and the productivity of our farms, forests, and fisheries. More…
