Dear [if writing to U.S. Congress pick your legislator from this link:]

I urge you to vote ‘yes’ on legislation that lowers greenhouse gas emissions, vitally important because human-caused emissions are causing climate to change in dangerous ways. 

In fact, climate is changing more and faster than humans have ever seen, more and faster than has been the case for millions of years.  Continuing on our present path will result in more devastating wildfires, flooding coastlines, extreme storms, loss of agicultural productivity, and cost taxpayers tens of billions of dollars that could have been saved by taking action now.

This is not speculation: it is overwhelmingly supported by scientific studies and agreed upon by thousands of scientists from throughout the world, as verified by recent reports from the Intergovermental Panel on Climate Change and the Scientific Consensus on Maintaining Humanity’s Life Support Systems in the 21st Century: Information For Policy Makers.  In fact, 97% of scientists publishing peer-reviewed studies agree that the climate disruption we already are experiencing is real, unusual, and human-caused.

Thank you for voting to reduce greenhouse gases, which will be an important consideration for me in choosing who to vote for in the next election.
