From the “nothing is sacred when you need to feed the sacred cow” department. This was in my email today. I can just see the cards now: “Dear Mom, I didn’t get you a gift, but I gave money to Al Gore’s scam pet project “Climate Reality” in your name, Love, Tommy” Yeah, that’s the ticket. It reminds me of George Costanza and the “Human Fund” for Christmas. It would be interesting to see how many people would be dumb enough to fall for this ploy.
This Mother’s Day, we hope you’ll be with your friends, family, and loved ones. Chances are you’ll be talking about the things that matter most to you, which – for many – includes the health of our planet.
Here at The Climate Reality Project, what motivates us most is the desire to protect our planet and our future for the people we love. And with 175 countries signing the historic Paris Agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions recently, this future is looking brighter and brighter. And we think the world should know.
Yet despite this continued progress, the fossil fuel industry and its allies continue to mislead the public with misconceptions about climate solutions and try to halt our movement’s efforts. So today, we’re asking for your help to shift the conversation toward stories of climate hope, progress, and solutions as we work to stop climate change.
This Mother’s Day, make a gift of just $2 to Climate Reality and help us share powerful stories of climate hope and solutions with people everywhere. These are the stories that inspire action. The stories that move millions and ultimately change the way the world thinks about and acts to solve climate change.
Will you help us fight back against the fossil fuel industry and its efforts to mislead the public? After all, it’s not just us their deception affects. It’s also people like your friends, family, and loved ones – people who deserve a safe and sustainable future.
With your support, we’ll be able to reach millions with the truth about climate change and the innovative solutions we have today, influence key policy decisions on energy and emissions, and mobilize communities everywhere to take action post-Paris.
Thank you for helping us create the healthy future powered by clean energy we need. For our families and for yours.
– Your friends at Climate Reality
