The impacts of climate change, including warmer temperatures, worsened extreme weather events and droughts, toxic algal blooms and sea-level rise all can lead to habitat loss and species decline. For example, endangered loggerhead sea turtles are already feeling the impacts as rising waters threaten their nesting beaches.

One of the most effective ways to reduce carbon pollution—the leading cause of climate change and related sea-level rise—is to require polluting industries to pay for the carbon pollution they create instead of dumping it freely into the atmosphere. This will spur a quicker transition away from carbon-polluting oil, gas and coal.

Yet, some in the oil, gas and coal industry have been successful in pushing a resolution in Congress that effectively blocks the growing momentum for a national carbon price. And a vote could happen this week!

Please contact your representative NOW and urge a no vote on H.Con.Res.119 and any effort that could limit opportunities to tackle climate change. And, press her or him to work with colleagues to find carbon pricing solutions that safeguard people and wildlife from harm.
