We get that you’ve probably already signed at least half-a-dozen petitions and we hope you have also made phone calls telling your congressional representatives to stop Manchin’s dirty side-deal greenlighting fossil fuel projects. But let’s rally for one more day of flooding them with phone calls, called by the National Green New Deal Network.
We realize that most readers of this newsletter are represented by Democrats — but Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is the one who made this dirty deal with Senator Joe Manchin, to get him to allow the Inflation Reduction Act to pass. We have to push our Democratic senators and representatives to buck the party leadership and do everything they can to fight this bill.
Our obligation is not to Manchin. It’s to future — and current! — generations of humans and all other living things, to stop the catastrophic cascade to climate disaster.
