Dear (Name of your representative)
The climate crisis is the greatest threat facing our world today - we are almost out of time to stop the consequences. I am concerned about climate change because (add your reasons for being concerned here).We must take action now. On 7/7/07 millions of people around the world came together to watch the Live Earth concerts and learn more about what individuals, businesses, and communities can do to stop the climate crisis. We need strong leadership from you – we need to set binding targets for reducing our carbon emissions. We demand a treaty in the next 2 years. I am asking that you commit to working toward this goal.
I've taken the Live Earth pledge – will you?
Here's the first point:
I demand that my country join an international treaty within the next 2 years that cuts 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.I look forward to your response.
(don't forget to include your name and address)
Thanks for taking action and demanding responsible leadership to solve the climate crisis.
