Climate change is here and already changing our world. Bold climate action is needed now!
The evidence of climate change is all around us. More frequent and intense storms. Deadly heat waves and massive wild fires. Melting glaciers, rising sea levels and coastal flooding. These rapid and devastating changes highlight the urgent need for action — by all of us — as individuals and collectively — in our communities, at the state and federal levels, and internationally.
The League, with its nonpartisan, reasoned voice, has an opportunity and a particularly critical role to play in building consensus and advancing effective solutions to the climate crisis. It's clear that we are facing a climate emergency, but there is still time to act. This toolkit provides action plans and resources that Leagues and League members can use to
engage people in their community in taking steps to save energy and reduce their carbon footprint,
work with their community to set emissions-reduction goals and then develop and implement a plan to achieve those goals, and
build grassroots support for strong climate action at the state and federal levels.
