Groups like the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights and Mobilize the Immigrant Vote are taking up the fight for climate action because they know that climate change affects us all.

Follow their lead. March with us at the largest climate rally in U.S. history and show President Obama that there is widespread support for rejecting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and limiting carbon pollution from our nation’s dirty power plants.

Join the rally on 2/17 in D.C. Sign-up today: www.nrdc.org/forwardonclimate

Time to Take Action on Polar Bears: Lessons from the International Polar Year NRDC’s Whitney Angell Leonard represented NRDC at last week’s International Polar Year conference in Montreal, Canada.  She writes: “While we will never know absolutely everything about polar bears, we have enough information to know that they are seriously in trouble. Experts already know that polar bears are threatened by climate change, hunting and trade, oil and gas development, and toxic contaminants that make their way up the arctic food chain. These threats are taking a toll, and fast: in 2005, 5 of the world’s 12 well studied polar bear populations were already found to be declining, and by 2009, scientists found that 8 of the 12 were declining. Experts predict that two thirds of the world’s polar bears will be gone by 2050, including Canada’s iconic Hudson Bay polar bears.”
Send a message urging the Obama Administration to help save polar bears.
