Pledge: Stop the denial. Stop the hate.
We can’t let a climate-denying racist into the White House next year, and we’ve got to hold the Democrats to their promises.
To do that, we’ve got to organize. In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be organizing bird-dogging actions, turning folks out to vote, and sharing stories online -- and we need your help.
We know that we can shift what’s politically possible in this country. The climate movement’s tireless bird-dogging efforts during the primary resulted in Hillary Clinton’s opposition to the Keystone XL Pipeline and Atlantic drilling. Next week, we expect the Democrats to ratify the strongest climate platform to date, thanks to the leadership shown by local activists across the country fighting to #keepitintheground. But we’ve still got a ways to go.

What makes you want to organize and take action for climate justice in this election?
World population up 3 times since I was born ... world GDP up 13 times ... world use of fossil fuels up and environmental degradation up AND technology used far too little for system improvement. We need management metrics that will enable better decisions http://www.truevaluemetrics.org
Are you, or someone you know, directly affected by the fossil fuel industry?
If yes, in what way?
All of us are affected by the fossil fuel industry ... because we use energy and in the United States we waste energy because of industrial and infrastructure inefficiency.
Do you identify as a youth or student?
What are you interested in helping with? *
Birddogging candidates in my area
Leading get-out-the-vote teams in my community
Social media and/or storytelling
Other: Long term system change
Do you have any questions for us?
I want to help, but only in a way that will be valuable. Most activism is very ineffective and wastes peoples' free time. Not surprisingly the change we need is coming far too slowly. When big business wants to do something and it is going to make more profit ... they move ... and the profit metrics show it. The activist community needs metrics that are just as powerful as the business profit / stock value metric and as easy to use and as ubiquitous.
