Tell Congress: Wake Up and Take Action on Climate Change

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

I joined 30 of my colleagues in pulling an all-nighter on the Senate floor to wake up Congress to the importance of taking action on climate change -- and the response has been phenomenal. We can win, but we need to fight. Add your voice to this wake-up call today.
There are currently 2,054 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Despite all the evidence about the reality of climate change and the damage it is causing, Congress has so far failed to do anything about it -- lulled through this crisis by polluting special interests. We need to send a clear message that the American people want Congress to wake up.

Monday night, I joined 30 of my colleagues in pulling an all-nighter on the Senate floor to wake up Congress to the importance of taking action on climate change -- and the response has been phenomenal. For nearly 15 hours straight, we controlled the debate on the floor while our Republican counterparts sat virtually idle on the sidelines.

But that's not all. In the past 24 hours, hundreds of thousands of grassroots supporters across our country have taken action online to add their voices to our efforts -- with thousands more taking action every hour.

Monday’s all-nighter was historic, but it was just the beginning. I am more energized and more inspired than ever by this outpouring of support.

This is the first effort of a new Climate Action Task Force that Barbara Boxer and I announced at the beginning of this year – an effort to break through the lies of Big Coal and Big Oil and finally galvanize our colleagues to acknowledge an undeniable truth: Climate change is real.

The overwhelming support we have received has heightened our confidence about our ability to get a significant climate bill passed in Congress. We can win, but we have to fight. And in order to fight, we need your voice.

Join me and thousands of others today to tell Congress: Wake up to climate change and take urgent action.
