SIGN THE PETITION:
Thank you for your climate letter -- now please put words into action!
To Gov. Phil Scott
Thank you for asking President Trump to keep America's commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement. Combating climate change creates jobs, improves competitiveness, and makes Vermont a leader in the clean energy economy.Your letter is a step in the right direction. But we need to see you turn those words into actions. We need to see you propose and support policies, right here in Vermont, that will tackle the climate crisis or create clean energy jobs in our state.A good next step would be to put a price on the carbon pollution causing global warming. This is a policy supported by economists left, right and center and was recently endorsed by Republican leaders like James Baker, George Shultz and Henry Paulson.Will you honor the words in your letter by supporting climate solutions --like this -- that will cut pollution and strengthen Vermont's clean energy economy?
