Sign this petition to thank the VT House and Senate for recent climate action!
The coronavirus pandemic has laid bare many sobering realities. It has exposed the dire consequences of failing to listen to science and experts. It has laid bare the high costs of insufficient planning. Over the past few months, the Legislature has been hard at work addressing the immediate needs of Vermonters as the COVID-19 crisis unfolds.
Over the past week, the legislature has begun shifting some of its attention to these other pressing on-going issues. The Senate has recently passed two bills aimed at addressing the climate crisis – and they’re taking up the House-passed Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA) in committee. Collectively, this package of bills takes important steps, and importantly, is underpinned by the GWSA which establishes a framework that will enable and require progress toward a job-creating recovery that improves our communities’ resilience, better protects public health, and cuts pollution.
Join dozens of organizations, businesses, and Vermont voters in thanking the Legislature for their steps so far, and calling on them to continue progress on the climate crisis this year – sign the following petition to add your voice today!
