Dear [Recipient Name]:
I am writing to express my concern about the imminent threat climate change poses to our country, to our people and the future of our children. An overwhelming number of scientists agree, and signs abound that climate change is occurring much faster than was initially predicted. We have only a few critical years before the changes become irreversible.
More than 2,000 scientists contributing to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have made it clear that cuts of at least 50% to 70% in global greenhouse gas emissions are necessary to allow our climate to re-stabilise. Therefore, the Government should be making every effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions - now.
To secure a future for our nation and our children now is the time to set a new and positive direction for our national energy policy. We need policies that will lead our nation away from fossil based fuels.
I understand that focusing on climate change is just one of many issues during these challenging times. However, we can not wait until tomorrow we must take strong action now to address the daunting issues that climate change poses. Thank you for your support.
Sincerely,
[Your Name]
