Taking Action in My State for Climate Change

 
  1. Encourage lawmakers to improve and update public transportation – when effective and far-reaching public transportation systems are in place, fewer cars clog the roads to emit greenhouse gases and air-polluting contaminants.

  2. Join local efforts of groups working with the mayor or other city officials to explore ways your city or municipality can do business and reduce harmful emissions.

  3. Organize or participate in city- and state-wide Earth Day celebrations to raise awareness of the challenges of global climate change.

  4. Pay attention to bills going before the state legislature that concern climate, emissions, or energy policies. Urge legislators to remember that poor people in your state may suffer the most from climate change and legislative measures should include provisions that address disproportionate economic impacts, i.e. in heating and transportation costs.
