Tck Tck Tick: Time's a wasting: How to take action on climate change now

Lita Epstein

The U.S. needs to join the world community and take action on climate change. As Wallet Poppers, you can help make that happen by getting involved in a number of excellent programs to get the word out, and also by investigating ways to lesson your own impact on our planet's climate.

We need to limit worldwide greenhouse gases and build a clean energy economy so we can find a sustainable solution to our global climate crisis. Leaders will meet in Copenhagen this December to negotiate a global response to climate change. The U.S. is the world leader in greenhouse gas pollution as well as clean energy technology. So it is time for the United States to implement comprehensive clean energy policies to curb emissions.

You can easily take the first step by signing a petition and inviting your friends to sign a petition at tcktcktck to ask world leaders to hammer out a global climate treaty in Copenhagen. You can take similar action at Vote Earth. We have less than a hundred days left to get the word out that it's time for world leaders to take bold and ambitious action and work out a fair agreement on climate action in December 2009.
