The Most Important Fight of My Career: the Lieberman-Warner Bill

I have been working to protect the environment for more than 30 years, and I feel like I am facing the most important fight of my career: passing the Lieberman/Warner climate change bill, which will be up for a vote in the Senate in early June.

I often write here about the steps we can take in our every day lives to reduce our carbon footprint. But the truth of the matter is none of these individual measures will be sufficient if we don’t make a national commitment to slash global warming pollution.

We have to pass a mandatory carbon cap, and we have to do it now, before it’s too late and too costly to prevent the most damaging effects of global warming.

NRDC’s climate and legislative teams are working 24/7 to get the strongest bill passed. We will push to make Lieberman/Warner stronger and we will oppose amendments that will weaken it. We will also enlist our members, activists and friends in this effort. Please join with us on this critical issue.

Visit NRDC’s website devoted to the bill, educate yourself, and make sure your senators know just how important this moment is.
