Last week you may have seen that the world's leading scientists published their most authoritative warning on the climate crisis to date. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon responded immediately saying the effects are "so severe and so sweeping that only urgent global action will do. We are all in this together. We must work together."

A few weeks from now in Bali, Indonesia is our chance. Government leaders from around the globe will gather to take heed of the scientists' findings and to craft an international treaty that will halt global warming. A treaty that will be a platform for dozens of clean energy solutions that can provide essential services to developed and developing countries alike. The time is now.

Please click here to send a message to a leading member of the US government delegation to the Bali Climate Change Conference urging him to agree to a treaty that addresses the scientists' recommendations -- a treaty that will cut global warming pollution by 90% in developed countries and by more than half worldwide in time for the next generation to inherit a healthy Earth.

This is not a partisan issue; it is a moral issue. Together we can chart a course that will make our children proud and provide a healthier future for them and for their own children. Left unchecked, however, we will have so violated our responsibility to future generations that no court of law or place of worship could look at humankind without making a harsh judgment.

UN Secretary-General Ban said about Saturday's IPCC report, "These scenes are as frightening as a science fiction movie. But they are even more terrifying because they are real..." With an eye toward the upcoming government meeting in Bali, Ban said, "The world's scientists have spoken clearly and with one voice. I expect the world's policy makers to do the same."

"Slowing and reversing these threats is the defining challenge of our age...It contains one overarching message for all of us: that there are real and affordable ways to deal with climate change."

Thank you dear Bev for posting this. We cannot plead and stress enuff how important this is. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for your actions, that is all we are asking. The alternative is destructive and terrifying. Just one person can set off a chain of events to heal our earth that gives us so much!
