NH is in drought across the state, our utility bills are set to double this month, and primary elections are on September 13th. This month is crucial in our fight to stop the fossil fuel industry’s greed and win a just transition to renewable energy. We hope you will take action with us by showing up to an event, canvassing with us, or becoming a monthly donor.

Now is a pivotal moment to push the President to take bold climate action. Thus far, Congress and the Administration have focused on ramping up renewable energy – which is good – but now it is time to start shutting down fossil fuels. We are glad that Senator Manchin finally reached a deal in Congress, but we also need President Biden to declare a climate emergency.
An emergency declaration would allow Biden to take drastic action to address the climate crisis. Send a letter to the White House now.
