How to solve one of the world's most pressing problems


You've seen the devastating effects of climate change, as wrought by Hurricane Sandy and other extreme weather events. And you understand that our choices have led to this. So what can you do to dial back the damage we've all done to our climate?

Take action that has a real impact

True, there are little things you can do in your life that will help, such as conserving energy and taking mass transit.

But what is really needed is change at national and global levels. Only by convincing leaders to create laws that improve our energy policy, and pushing companies to adopt sustainable business practices on a global level, can we see real change.

A few quick keystrokes

We want to make this easy for you: Sign up for action alerts, and you can tell your leaders where you stand with just a few quick keystrokes.
