Another task to keep you warm during this Polar Vortex, which Climate Central says "may be a counterintuitive example of global warming in action" - the 'warm Arctic cold continents' paradigm.

Our supporters are vital in helping us continue to fight for a market price on carbon pollution and a political price on denial. And now it's time we get to work. *First on our list: we need your help to strengthen the Social Cost of Carbon*<http://forms.climaterealityproject.org/page/m/396e8145/6fc80577/12abc68a/19b039a6/2285717771/VEsD/> . Many people may not realize it, but the carbon pollution driving climate change has been costing us -- all of us -- for years. Costs like: - Millions to repair and rebuild homes devastated by floods. - Higher insurance rates for coastal communities struck by super storms. - Rising hospital bills for senior citizens suffering from record heat. It goes on. Recognizing this, the government developed the Social Cost of Carbon as a tool to connect these monetary damages with the pollution behind them. It's the government's way of identifying the real cost of carbon pollution and putting a valuation on the harmful effects of climate change. The White House is seeking to increase the estimate of the Social Cost of Carbon from only $23.80 per metric ton of carbon pollution to $37 -- a step in the right direction towards a market price on carbon. It's no surprise that Big Oil and Big Coal are doing everything they can to challenge this change. After all, if the Social Cost of Carbon goes up and people understand the real cost of carbon pollution, demand for energy will shift to clean energy sources and it'll be a lot harder for them to continue to make record profits. *Here's where you come in. Anyone can comment on this proposed change -- and we're counting on you to help fight back against Big Oil and Big Coal*<http://forms.climaterealityproject.org/page/m/396e8145/6fc80577/12abc68a/19b039a6/2285717771/VEsA/> . *It's People vs. Carbon -- and it's high time the people had their voices heard*. Our government was created for the people, by the people. Not for the industry. Not for the corporations. *Use your voice and support this important change to the Social Cost of Carbon*<http://forms.climaterealityproject.org/page/m/396e8145/6fc80577/12abc68a/19b039a6/2285717771/VEsB/> . Sincerely, *Victoria Simarano* Director of Grassroots and Strategic Partnerships P.S. The comment period to the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the revised Social Cost of Carbon closes January 27. *Don't wait until it's too late -- add your voice today*<http://forms.climaterealityproject.org/page/m/396e8145/6fc80577/12abc68a/19b039a6/2285717771/VEsO/> . *ADD YOUR NAME*<http://forms.climaterealityproject.org/page/m/396e8145/6fc80577/12abc68a/19b039a6/2285717771/VEsP/> Follow us on Twitter<http://forms.climaterealityproject.org/page/m/396e8145/6fc80577/12abc68a/19b039a5/2285717771/VEsHBQ/> Like us on Facebook<http://forms.climaterealityproject.org/page/m/396e8145/6fc80577/12abc68a/19b039a4/2285717771/VEsHBA/> Click here<http://forms.climaterealityproject.org/page/m/396e8145/6fc80577/12abc68a/19b039a3/2285717771/VEsHBw/p/eyJKU1ZGVFVGSlRDVWwiOiJzamFja3plbjQ2QGdtYWlsLmNvbSJ9/>to unsubscribe. ©2013 The Climate Reality Project.
