Join the virtual rally to #ActOnClimate

Sierra Club - Explore, enjoy and protect the planet

Dear friends,
Join the virtual rally to support limits on carbon pollution!

Join the Thunderclap!

Take action

In just a few clicks you can help make historic limits on carbon pollution a reality.

President Obama promised that his administration would take action to confront the climate crisis — and now the EPA has finally proposed the first-ever safeguards against carbon pollution from our nation’s aging power plants.

From July 29-31, the EPA will be holding public hearings on these historic limits. Hundreds of activists will testify and rally outside hearings in Denver, Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Washington, DC. Even if you can’t be there in person, you can help put pressure on the EPA by donating a tweet or Facebook status update in advance, all timed to hit at once as the hearings begin Tuesday morning. 

This will help make #EPA and #ActOnClimate important trending topics on social media, creating a buzz for people to take action. It also puts pressure on EPA to listen to grassroots activists, not lobbyists paid by the big polluters.

Join the “Thunderclap” to support limits on carbon pollution, showing EPA that Americans demand they #ActOnClimate.

You may be asking yourself, what’s a “Thunderclap”?

Here’s how it works: we provide you with a message of support for EPA to #ActOnClimate (which you can personalize), and using an online service called Thunderclap, you can have the message automatically posted to your Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr accounts at the exact same moment as hundreds of others across the country.

Donate a Tweet, Facebook status, or Tumblr post now.

This is a big deal, and the big polluters know it. 

This is the beginning of what could be the biggest climate fight in history. Fossil fuel billionaires are mobilizing like never before. They’re already sending their lobbyists to Washington and spreading their fear-mongering talking points on Fox News. While their money talks, they can’t match our people power.

By joining this virtual rally of thousands of people taking action online, you will fight back. You will also spread the message directly to your friends, family, and followers– the people you have the most social media influence over. No talking head or slick ad campaign will be as influential as you.

Spread the message and ask your friends and followers to submit a written comment into EPA supporting their Clean Power Plan.

Thank you for all you do,

Andy Wilson

P.S. Six messages are more powerful than one! After you take action, forward this message to five of your friends and family and make sure you spread the word about the Thunderclap on social media.
