Letter to the Editor from one of our Directors

Action is needed now'

Sunday, Mar. 01, 2009

For the past 40 years, as our climate has warmed, birds have shifted their winter ranges farther and farther north. This ecological disruption is yet another wake-up call that we must act quickly to solve the climate crisis. The birds' northward movement is another signal that climate change is here and action is needed now.

We need global warming legislation that will help birds and wildlife survive what is coming by protecting their habitats and will reduce global warming pollution 80% by 2050 to avoid the worst impacts of a rapidly changing climate. We also need to repower America by moving us toward a 100% clean energy future, reduce our dependence on oil by half and invest in the clean energy economy of tomorrow.

The time to act is now, before it is too late. The cost of inaction will be high in both dollars and a diminished world. It would be a shame if we leave our children and grandchildren with fewer birds to grace our skies and less wildlife to enjoy.
