We are honored to celebrate Earth Day 2018 by working to secure more co-sponsors for the OFF Fossil Fuels for a Better Future Act, (HR 3671) that currently has 33 co-sponsors. Click here to tell your Representative to cosponsor the bill. We would like to secure 10 more cosponsors over the next 10 weeks. There is no time to waste. Our planet, our home, is at serious risk.

Stand Up For The Only Earth 🌍 We Have

PDA at the St. Petersburg Climate March

PDA was instrumental in the early work around the OFF Act, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, (D-HI2), is the original author. This legislation will remove subsidies for climate warming carbon energy, and move incentives to promote solar, wind, and other clean, safe sustainable energy. When it becomes law, we will be much more aggressively moving toward 100 percent renewable energy.

As the Trumpublican regime moves to obliterate environmental regulations and protections, we must rise together and address the climate emergency and defend the environment in every possible way. Please click here to tell Congress: Fire Scott Pruitt. Then, please pitch in to support PDA’s Climate Organizing.

All the dreams of Mars colonization you can muster will not develop fast enough for escape or turn the tide of the climate emergency. We need to act—together.

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.
—William Shakespeare

PDA has members in nearly every state yet there are not OFF Act co-sponsors in some of those states. I am embarrassed and angry that none of Colorado’s representatives have signed on since I live in Colorado, and I know how critical this bill is for future generations. Please contact your congress person now!

PDA is lucky to have so many progressive champions working to secure sound environmental and climate policy. Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-AZ3 has been a stalwart and powerful defender of environmental justice, and we honor his work on this Earth Day as well. Rep. Grijalva has done incredible work on natural resources for the Grand Canyon, national lands, forests, wilderness, and parks as well as conservation work. But it isn’t luck that will protect and enhance our world and make it healthy and safe from man-made damage and destruction. Caring for the planet is more than leftie talk or hippie dribble.

This planet—our planet—ties us all together and could be the human family’s greatest endeavor. we cannot continue to make the kind of positive change without your support. In this time of such tremendous pressure and stress for us all, please work to secure support for leaders who lead on climate—all of them.

Support our work. Make easy. effective calls from your own home today through Tuesday to help us flip a congressional seat in Arizona. Mike “Phone Guy” Fox will show you how. Then, please give however you are able to help us organize to Stop Global Warming.
