Climate change is caused by human activities and is threatening the way we live and the future of our planet. By addressing climate change, we can build a sustainable world for everyone. But we need to act now. Doing nothing will end up costing us a lot more than if we take actions now that will lead to more jobs, greater prosperity, and better lives for all while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and building climate resilience.
The ECCC is starting the #ClimateVote initiative to encourage everyone to vote to save themselves by electing people who want to take substantive action on climate change. As of 2022, there is only one major political party (The Democratic Party) that is willing to do something about it. We need to hold the Senate, the House, and as many down-ballot races as possible.Read more
