Moms Against Climate Change

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009 by:

Are you worried about the kind of world your children will live in if nothing is done to prevent climate change?

Science clearly shows us the kind of the world our children will live in if we do nothing about climate change: melting polar ice caps, starving polar bears, drought, floods, unlivable climates in some parts of the world and even more extreme weather events, such as hurricanes and tornadoes. Such changes in our climate mean more instability around the world as countries fight for dwindling natural resources, or as people are forced to leave their homes to seek refuge.

Moms Against Climate Change was formed when Environmental Defence and Forest Ethics, two of Canada’s leading environmental groups, came together to partner in a campaign to affect Canada’s role at the UN Climate Change Summit in December. The campaign asks parents to take a stance on climate change on behalf of their children who, too young to vote, will be most impacted by the effects of climate change.

A new Public Service Announcement for the campaign (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwrrikNeFZg) asks, “If our children knew the facts we do, they’d take action. Shouldn’t you?” The video is currently sparking lots of debate on YouTube and will be showing on TV stations across Canada. There is also a website for the campaign, www.MomsAgainstClimateChange.com, where parents can take action by uploading a photo of their child. A photo mosaic will be projected in a public space near Parliament Hill before the Summit.

To join the thousands of moms across Canada taking action to protect our children’s future, please watch the video and pass it on. And upload a photo of your child to remind Stephen Harper who he’s representing in Copenhagen.
