The greatest challenge in human history

Today is Earth Day. 54 years since the first Earth Day, and it has never been clearer that climate change is here. With rising sea levels and storms getting more intense each year, the situation will get worse if we do not act now.

While it may feel overwhelming, it is crucial that we unite and work together to mitigate and reverse the worst effects of climate change. There is no other option but to keep fighting to bring down global emissions.

The good news is that we have made a lot more progress in the last four years than we have in the 50-odd years before that. And that is worth celebrating.

President Biden and Democrats in Congress passed the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) in 2022, the most ambitious climate initiative in American history, investing more than $360 Billion (yes, with a B) aimed at reducing emissions by 41% by 2030. In the years since the IRA passed, energy providers, car manufacturers, municipalities, and individuals have been incentivized to take crucial steps to bring down emissions.

But our work is far from over. Tackling an incredibly complex problem like climate change is going to take everyone getting off the sidelines. We need to flip the House and expand our majority in the Senate so that we can take even greater steps toward climate reform. Will you donate $16 to our campaign today and take the first step towards a pro-climate majority?

As we head into a Presidential election, the reality is we do not have time to re-elect Donald Trump. The clock is ticking, and every day needs to be treated like Earth Day.

If we allow Republicans to maintain or expand their control over the federal government, we will be subject to more political theater and inaction. If Democrats regain a majority in the House, we can keep marching forward to meet the moment

If we work together, we can do it,
