The time left before we pump enough GHG pollution into the air to lock in going beyond 1.5°C (7 years) & 2°C (25 years)
2020 Climate Bill Package & Nationwide Network
Join the nationwide network to combine movements for real political power!
In Climate Week 2020, a nationwide network launched a ”Climate Bill Package” Campaign, uniting 10 bills spanning key policy sectors. Designed to unite the underlying movements, the bills are collectively supported by over 1200 organizations.
The Package tackles regenerative agriculture, plastics, fracking, refrigerants, confined animal feeding operations, toxic pesticides, planting billions of trees, restoring wetlands, environmental justice and just transition – with more to come.
The policies were written through coalition efforts by Food & Water Action, The Center for Biological Diversity, Family Farm Alliance, NRDC, Oceana, and many more.
By organizing around a package, the hope is to unite the underlying movements to increase political power and capacity. If we’re all asking for 10 bills instead of just one, our reach grows instantly and that’s the multiplier we need.
For 2020, the network will target 100 Districts nationwide, led by local leaders affiliated with Climate Reality, Project Drawdown, Unitarian Universalists, Sierra Club, 350, Climate Crisis Policy, and many more.
The goal this year is to secure a voting block for these core demands, which our movement has generated from decades of expertise and devotion. They need our help.
Please join the effort below. It’s time to get together for victory in 2021!

Climate Solutions Education
We need everyone onboard to make the transitions required to save ourselves. Every teacher, student and voter. Every consumer!
Climate Crisis Policy is recruiting the marketing industry to launch a mass public awareness campaign, “Solutions to Help Save Earth.” We all need to get educated about these specific solutions, within climate groups, and across movements. Please educate your leaders on the Policy Digest and recruit groups outside the climate movement to join the education cause.
See OurClimateOurFuture for great introductory videos:

2020 Candidate Engagement
When we educate the candidates, we educate the winners.
Our goal is to get all 2020 candidates to support the Climate Bill Package.
Please help engage your candidates by finding their campaign websites and contacting them about The Climate Bill Package. Find a local group that endorses candidates to help get replies. And get organized locally in each Congressional District to push for action and get out the Climate Vote.
The effort to pass climate legislation in 2021 starts now.
Making Congress Act 2021
Big Oil, Agriculture & Pharma are united and in control. So we must unite to shift power and win.
To harness our collective power, we need to determine our shared policy demands and build emergency coalition infrastructure – with national and state networks, staffing and offices – to speak with one voice and take direct action together.
We need to be ready to lead strategically on legislation because the bills filed by politicians may be too small or slow, too splintered across topics to galvanize enough outside pressure, or too politically polarized. Meanwhile, countervailing forces will fight to weaken and block everything with unlimited funds and lobbying power.
The movements impacted by the climate crisis are vast and could have tremendous power if united. They span renewable energy, divestment, energy independence, local job creation, labor rights, wildlife protection, food waste, plastics, recycling, clean air and water, healthy farms and food, good city living and public transit. They could link healthcare workers, environmental lawyers, business associations, insurance executives, peace activists and many more.
Currently, Congressional leaders and advocacy groups are filing many good bills, but passing a bill is a different matter. We must admit that none of us have the power alone to pass our individual-issue bills, which only tackle parts of the problem anyway. Banded together, we could pass them all and make sure they’re bold enough to solve the crisis in time.
To help create the necessary unity, the Climate Crisis Policy Team will host online conversations with activists and organizations across movements. This is the exciting part – building an unstoppable force to save Mother Earth.
Business & Finance Pressure Now
The business and banking communities have the power and duty to eliminate GHG pollution.
Grocery stores can help with farming, rainforests, plastics, waste, and hydrofluorocarbon problems. Car manufacturers can build charging infrastructure, raise efficiency standards, go 100% electric, and use clean refrigerants. Banks can stop financing new pipelines and dirty factories and fund renewables instead. All retail stores of clothing and consumer goods can institute refundable deposits to ensure items are returned, creating a circular economy that reuses materials and eliminates waste. Industries can act now, and many are, but pressure is needed for systemic change until a national mandate is established.
We’re taking direct action in two key industries, on food giants Cargill and Stop & Shop in collaboration with Mighty Earth, and against Chase Bank as part of the NYC Chase Coalition and Stop the Money Pipeline.
Please engage any businesses you patronize and ask them to adopt climate friendly practices.
