Tell the B.C. Government We Need Climate Action Now!
Take action now and urge Premier Clark and the B.C. government to step up and show meaningful climate leadership.
The International Panel on Climate Change’s fifth assessment is unequivocal: human-caused climate change is well underway and we need immediate and decisive climate action if we are to avoid dangerous global warming thresholds.
The report highlights that affordable alternatives to carbon pollution are already available in the form of renewable energy, and that global emissions need to go down no later than 2020, followed by a complete phase-out of fossil fuels in the following decades.
We need the B.C. government to immediately shift government support away from fossil fuel projects and build a low-carbon economy, especially by investing in renewable energy and energy-efficiency jobs.
New carbon polluting projects like the proposed Kinder Morgan and Enbridge tar sands pipelines and tankers projects, coal mines, fracking wells and liquefied natural gas proposals, must be rejected if their carbon footprint is incompatible with meeting emissions reduction targets required to maintain a livable climate.
Take action now. Ask Premier Clark and the B.C. government to step up and show meaningful climate leadership and help protect B.C. families from the threat climate change poses to our food security, our jobs and our communities.
