The progress we've made on climate change

Friend -- It isn't hard to remember when addressing climate change seemed like a pipe dream. Climate change deniers had not only blocked legislation in Congress, they wouldn't even accept the basic facts. The then-small clean energy industry was struggling along with everyone else through the Great Recession. And countries around the world were waiting for American leadership on this crucial global issue. That didn't stop those of us who know our future relies on bold action. We've tackled those challenges head-on, and we've changed the conversation. We've come a long way over the past few years, in large part because of the work of people like you. This end-of-year, I'm asking you to keep stepping up to help make sure the progress we've fought so hard for continues -- help fund this fight by chipping in whatever you can today: my.ofa.bo/Invest-In-This OFA volunteers, organizers, and supporters have spoken up time and time again. They've called out climate change deniers in Congress, backed our strong leadership on the world stage, and stood up for the Clean Power Plan and other critical actions to protect our future. It's this kind of outspokenness that's driven the change. It's helped lead to record growth in the clean energy industry, major steps to cut carbon pollution from power plants, and last month, the Paris Climate Agreement -- a truly historic global agreement to tackle climate change -- entered into force with nearly 200 countries following America's lead. We know that climate change isn't some far-away problem -- it's happening now, and we're already seeing its effects in the form of extreme weather and month-after-month of record-breaking heat. These achievements are a great start, but the future of the fight is on the line. Think about how our kids will look at us if we don't do all we can to protect the progress we've made. We know how much we can accomplish when we take action together. Now, more than ever, we can't afford to be cynical or slow down the fight against climate change. Let's defend our progress and keep pushing in 2017 -- be a part of this by pitching in now: my.ofa.bo/Invest-In-This Thanks, Jack Jack Shapiro Director of Policy and Campaigns Organizing for Action

Friend --

It isn't hard to remember when addressing climate change seemed like a pipe dream. Climate change deniers had not only blocked legislation in Congress, they wouldn't even accept the basic facts. The then-small clean energy industry was struggling along with everyone else through the Great Recession. And countries around the world were waiting for American leadership on this crucial global issue.

That didn't stop those of us who know our future relies on bold action. We've tackled those challenges head-on, and we've changed the conversation.

We've come a long way over the past few years, in large part because of the work of people like you. This end-of-year, I'm asking you to keep stepping up to help make sure the progress we've fought so hard for continues -- help fund this fight by chipping in whatever you can today.

OFA volunteers, organizers, and supporters have spoken up time and time again. They've called out climate change deniers in Congress, backed our strong leadership on the world stage, and stood up for the Clean Power Plan and other critical actions to protect our future.

Let's defend our progress and keep pushing in 2017 -- be a part of this by pitching in now.
