Bridging the Climate Divide

目标:在气候变化问题上找到共同点,并说服国会采取行动减少我国气候变暖的排放.
美国人已经在经历气候变化的影响, from stronger storms, to more frequent floods, to worsening wildfires and more. 然而,在气候行动方面,国会仍然陷入僵局.
这种僵局的核心是一个悲剧性的讽刺:华盛顿的许多当选代表, D.C. 那些反对气候行动的人代表的正是处于飓风路径上的社区, floods and wildfires being turbocharged by climate change.
生活在这些脆弱社区的大多数人都担心全球变暖的风险. 但是,随着公众对话在彻底否认气候变化和重建我们整个社会的计划之间分裂, the gulf on climate solutions seems wider than ever. That’s why we’re working to bridge the climate divide.

It’s time to bridge the climate divide

To win concrete climate action, 我们必须解决直接受气候变化影响的社区和经常投错票的代表之间的脱节.

数以百万计的人正面临失去家园和生意的危险,这是荒谬的, we keep burning fossil fuels with abandon, and our leaders are unable to agree on commonsense solutions.

Meanwhile, 由于海平面上升,我们正在失去我们国家的自然和历史海岸宝藏, sunny day flooding and extreme storm surges. 我们甚至在越来越凶猛的野火中失去了整个社区.

As the impacts of climate change become harder to ignore, 我们可以开始弥合美国人之间的分歧,并在常识性的解决方案上找到共同点.

It’s not enough to speak to those who already agree with us. 我们需要在全国范围内扩大对气候行动的支持, regardless of political affiliation. 我们知道这是可能的:像风能和太阳能这样的气候解决方案在持不同政治观点的人当中很受欢迎,甚至在那些对气候科学持怀疑态度的人当中也很受欢迎.

我们需要向我们的民选官员展示投票反对前瞻性气候政策的政治代价, 以及支持选民想要的政策所带来的政治利益.

That's why we’re:

  • Supporting first responders through our Solar Strong campaign, 全国每个消防站都需要太阳能和电池的备用解决方案吗.
  • 与历史保护主义者合作,提高人们的认识,保护我国的历史遗迹免受极端天气和海平面上升的影响.
  • 与地方官员合作,提高能源效率,加快全国县镇向清洁能源的过渡.
  • 扩大医生和护士的声音,他们每天都在办公室里看到气候变化对病人健康的毁灭性影响.
  • 与退休的军事领导人和退伍军人讨论气候变化对关键军事基础设施的影响.

At the core of these solutions lie values we can all agree on, 从促进公共安全和提高社区复原力, 保护我们家人的健康,保护我们美丽的自然和历史地区.

Our national network is starting with the coastal states, where there’s a clear and present threat from sea level rise, extreme weather and storm surges. Almost half of the U.S. House of Representatives represent communities along the coast.

冰球突破网站登录环境组织和我们的全国网络在不同政治观点的美国人之间找到共同点方面有着成功的记录. 我们帮助美国最近通过了《冰球突破网站登陆》,为我们的公园和公共土地获得了数十亿美元的资金,我们还说服了从弗吉尼亚到冰球突破网站登录州到加利福尼亚州的各州承诺使用可再生能源.

Not a moment to lose

For the people of Paradise, California, or Mexico Beach, Florida, or Ellicott City, Maryland, it’s already too late. 天堂——内华达山脉的一个小山城——在2018年的营火中被摧毁. 小镇在数小时内被烧毁,84名社区成员最终失去了生命. 2018年飓风“迈克尔”带来的风暴潮席卷了佛罗里达州乡村狭长地带墨西哥海滩的一个又一个街区. And Ellicott City, a colonial town founded in 1772 in Maryland, faced two devastating “1,000 year” floods in the span of three years, decimating its historic downtown.

弥合气候分歧将使我们能够卷起袖子,开始更迅速、更有效地实施全面的气候解决方案. Instead of bickering, 我们的领导人将带领他们的社区和追随者一起支持解决方案. 通过共同努力,我们可以为我们的子孙后代留下一个更健康、更安全的未来.
