Sample Letter 2015 04 20 - Everyone needs to Step Up to Solve Climate Change

Dear Elected Leaders,

I am celebrating that all but three of the Provincial First Ministers showed up to make plans for climate action. I am delighted that Ontario will work with Quebec toward a renewable energy future. I am thankful that we are beginning to have the discussion we need about the most serious security risk of our time: climate change. I hope you will make sure your policies support the development of healthy sustainable economies today and a healthy planet for our grandchildren tomorrow.
 

Now is the time to Step Up.

  • Step Up to Honour the Earth with ClimateFast on Earth Day.

  • Encourage Business to Step UP– to put a renewable energy future in their short and long range plans. Make sure businesses owe an obligation to the earth and to the communities that host and sustain them.

  • Encourage Cities to Step Up –to become liveable low carbon communities.

  • Encourage Provinces to Step Up – to build us the renewable energy electrical infrastructure we need to replace fossil fuels. Foster innovation in buildings and transportation.

  • Step Up Canada – Give us a fair, effective, national framework that will stimulate innovation.

    • Give us a national price on carbon and

    • eliminate all subsidies on fossil fuels.

    • Develop a renewable energy plan for Canada

  • Help Canadians learn to work with the new price on fossil fuels. Educate us about the need for a renewable energy future.

  • Step Up For First Nations.

  • Stand UP for the vulnerable, the elderly, the homeless, disabled, and working poor! Make sure everyone can live with dignity. Help us adjust.

 

Let’s work together to build a sustainable lifestyle for the world in the twenty-first century.

 

Sincerely

(your name and address)
