Dear Center Supporter,
This summer Los Angeles became the largest city to join the Center for Biological Diversity's Clean Air Cities campaign by passing a resolution in support of using the Clean Air Act to curb global warming now. It joined 36 other cities, including Pittsburgh, Detroit, Salt Lake City and Miami. We need your help to bring Houston in too.
The bad news: Climate change is already affecting our communities. The U.S. Department of Agriculture declared all of Texas a natural disaster zone during the unprecedented 2011 drought, and Houston is particularly vulnerable to sea-level rise, hurricanes and flooding -- all expected to worsen with global warming.
The good news: The Clean Air Act can be used to rapidly cut greenhouse gas pollution in the United States. But the Act is under attack, and we need major cities like Houston to stand strong and insist we use the Act to its full potential.
Please take a minute to ask Mayor Annise Parker to make Houston the next Clean Air City.
If you have trouble following the link, go to http://action.biologicaldiversity.org/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=11565.
Please take action by November 30, 2012.
Donate now to support our work.
