Another chance to take action, Climate Change Changers. Scott Jackson sjackzen46 [at] gmail.com ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Brant Olson, Forecast the Facts <info [at] forecastthefacts.org> Date: Sat, Apr 5, 2014 at 7:01 AM Subject: The science is in -- write a letter to your editor today To: Scott Jackson <sjackzen46 [at] gmail.com> *The new IPCC report concludes that we need ambitious climate action -- but climate change deniers are rushing to discredit it. Take back the editorial pages by writing a letter to the editor.* <http://act.forecastthefacts.org/go/675?t=1&akid=399.151718.qYSP-C> [image: TAKE ACTION]<http://act.forecastthefacts.org/go/675?t=2&akid=399.151718.qYSP-C> Dear Scott, The United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the principal international body for the assessment of climate research, just published its Fifth Assessment Report concluding unequivocally that* climate change is real and requires meaningful action -- but the anti-science fringe is now running to the media to spread misinformation *and discredit the report. In one example on Monday, the president of the Koch-funded Heartland Institute published an op-ed in Forbes arguing that climate change would have "net benefits" - and there's many more like him being printed in newspapers across the country. *Let's confront this nonsense with facts and take the editorial pages back from this small-but-vocal fringe.* *Write a letter to the editor at a newspaper of your choice, using our online tool. <http://act.forecastthefacts.org/go/675?t=3&akid=399.151718.qYSP-C>* Submitting a letter is easy: follow this link<http://act.forecastthefacts.org/go/675?t=4&akid=399.151718.qYSP-C>, choose a newspaper, draft a letter, and our tool will automatically send it to the appropriate editor. *Here are a few points to consider:* - Science should guide our response to climate change -- not the opinions of the extreme fringe. - Dozens of governments and hundreds of experts reviewed the IPCC report. Its findings represent a global consensus on the basic science of climate change. - The IPCC report shows that Climate change is already harming ecological systems on every continent and throughout the world's oceans, and that these effects will grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. - We need to act now, by all possible means, to control climate pollution. *The IPCC has spoken loud and clear -- but deniers are making as much noise as possible to drown it out. Submit a letter to the editor now to make sure that the science is heard.*<http://act.forecastthefacts.org/go/675?t=5&akid=399.151718.qYSP-C> Factually yours, Brant, Emily, Sylvie, and the rest of the Forecast the Facts team MORE INFORMATION "The Fifth Assessment Report," IPCC, 3-31-14 http://act.forecastthefacts.org/go/676?t=7&akid=399.151718.qYSP-C<http://act.forecastthefacts.org/go/676?t=6&akid=399.151718.qYSP-C> "The IPCC's Latest Report Deliberately Excludes and Misrepresents Important Climate Science," Forbes, 3-31-14 http://act.forecastthefacts.org/go/674?t=9&akid=399.151718.qYSP-C<http://act.forecastthefacts.org/go/674?t=8&akid=399.151718.qYSP-C> ------------------------------ *Forecast the Facts is a grassroots organization that empowers people to fight climate change denial and promote accurate information about the climate crisis.
