Stop Deforestation with a Strong Climate Bill

A senate climate bill will be announced on Capitol Hill today to address America’s climate and energy crisis, but they left out one important element—protecting rainforests.

Tropical deforestation contributes as much as 15% of all carbon dioxide pollution each year. Tropical forests are home to over half of all species on earth and millions of people depend on them for their livelihoods.

That’s why it’s essential that U.S. climate legislation include funds to protect rainforests and assist developing countries in transitioning to a clean and sustainable energy future.

CLICK HERE to send a message to your senator now, asking him/her to tell Chairman Reid how important it is to fund provisions that protect rainforests in the Senate climate bill!
