I wish I didn’t have to write this email to you. See, the
environmental movement has made such great strides in recent years.
We’ve developed new, cleaner energy sources, and lots of people are now
taking action to stop the worst of global warming. I've always believed
we can turn this thing around, but it's going to take us all pulling
Having been through presidential elections, both as a candidate and
as a concerned citizen, this last one was the worst yet for the climate.
Donald Trump is doing everything he can to undo the progress we’ve made
together in recent years, even pulling the U.S. out of the Paris
Climate Agreement. We’re seeing extreme weather events every night on
the news. Sadly, we only have to look around at what’s happening with
damaging flooding caused by global warming induced storms, record
breaking temperatures around the globe, wildfires, and the melting ice
caps in the Arctic to know this is not theory — this is reality.
But I'm not giving up and neither should you. I've been working hard on my new movie, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.
In the movie, we share inspiring stories about the renewable energy
revolution that’s already under way. I hope everyone who comes to see it
will leave knowing that while the stakes have never been higher, the
perils of climate change can still be overcome when we combine brain
power with people power.
There’s a lot we can do, and must do. I know it can seem
overwhelming. So please, just commit to doing these two things right
now and we’ll go from there.
1. Greenpeace and a lot of other good folks in the growing global
environmental movement are coming together in the court case “People vs.
Arctic Oil.” They’re taking the Norwegian government to court because
it’s opening up new areas of the Arctic for oil drilling — for the first
time in 20 years — while burning oil is a primary cause of climate
change. What happens in the Arctic affects us all. Please
use your voice and take a stand on climate change by clicking here to
add your name to the movement against Arctic oil. Your signature will be
presented as evidence in the Greenpeace case.
2. You may know someone who’s on the fence about climate change.
In this era of “fake news” it’s hard for people to know what to believe.
Instead of dismissing that person, why not reach out to them and offer
to go see An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, together?
Maybe even share your popcorn with them. For a limited time, Greenpeace
supporters can bring a friend for free. Go to Fandango.com and enter the
promo code CLIMATEBOGO at check out and share the film with someone who
needs to see it.*
Since you’re part of Greenpeace, I know you get it. And I thank you
for all you’ve done already for the planet. Now, I hope you’ll join us
by signing the petition and bringing a friend to see An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.
Are you with me?
