     *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.*

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.

Submitting a letter is easy: follow this
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

*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

Factually yours,
Brant, Emily, Sylvie, and the rest of the Forecast the Facts team
