"It's the most important wildlife conservation legislation in history," said John Kostyack, NWF's wildlife policy expert.
"Really?" Could this new global warming bill--the Climate Security Act--truly be as big as the Endangered Species Act...or the Clean Water Act...or the Clean Air Act?
If so, how?
"Well" said John, "Global warming has the potential to wipe out all of the conservation victories of the last century."
Endangered wildlife on the road to recovery could face new challenges as global warming alters their habitat and way of life. Waters that we once fought to protect could dry up from extreme drought. In all, up to one-third of all species could disappear by 2050 if global warming continues unchecked.
But, you can help change the forecast for wildlife!
The National Wildlife Federation is working to pass an important new global warming bill in Congress called the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act.
This legislation not only reduces the global warming pollution that is impacting wildlife habitat across the country, it also puts billions of dollars to work to help wildlife survive a changing climate.
Help protect wildlife for future generations by sending a message to your senators!
Your voice is essential to make our campaign to pass the Climate Security Act a success. Make sure both of your senators sign on to this bill and vote for its passage.
Thanks so much!
