ACTION ALERT – Climate Change Scientists Need Our Help

DOAS Action AlertCall Congressman Faso Today

The climate in Washington has changed. If you care about the scientific integrity of climate science, it is time to make a phone call. In spite of a scientific consensus, President Trump has called climate change a “hoax”. His recent actions make it clear that the federal government will be less forthcoming with climate data and other information. Efforts are already underway to silence federal scientists. It is now likely there will be severe cuts to federal efforts on this critical issue. Experts in the field became so concerned about the safety of government databases they spent 2 months copying as much information as possible onto university servers.

Years of data gathering by NOAA and other government agencies may end. It is critically important that there not be a 4 year gap in federally gathered climate data.

On January 26, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists moved the Doomsday Clock the closest it has been to midnight since 1953. They include the risk of a climate catastrophe in their risk assessment.

Here in the 19^th Congressional District, we have a new Congressman, John Faso. Representative Faso has not yet articulated a position on climate change. Calls to the congressman would help him learn how his constituents feel about this issue. Please call his office this week. You will reach a staff person. Share some personal feelings. Also, ask him/her to tell the congressman:

  • Climate change is real. It is not a hoax. There is a scientific consensus.
  • Infrastructure, agriculture, fisheries, and ecosystems will be increasingly compromised.
  • New York’s boreal habitat, along with a number of associated bird species, is at risk.
  • EPA’s and NOAA’s work on climate issues must continue, and be protected from cuts.
  • Federal science must continue to be made public.
  • Carbon and methane emissions must be reduced.
  • Then, ask for the congressman’s position on climate change.

 

A phone call is best. Call Representative Faso’s office at (202) 225-5614
