Global warming is the most urgent environmental threat we face, and individual actions can help to promote solutions to this problem.
Take our global warming pledge!

Federal advocacy:* Write to my Senators in support of strong global warming legislation* Work to encourage my Representative to formulate and pass strong global warming legislation* Set up an in-district meeting with the district staff of my Senators and Representative to advocate for strong global warming legislationState:* Encourage my State legislators to work toward a stronger Renewable Electricity Standard* Write a letter to the Governor encouraging stricter standards for greenbuilding and building efficiency in the state* Contact my energy utilities and urge them to provide clean, renewable energy alternatives like wind, solar, and biomassLocal:* Write a letter-to-the-editor of my local newspaper in support of global warming initiatives at the federal, state or local level* Encourage my Mayor to sign on to the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection Agreement if they have not already* Attend a city council, county commission, planning, fish and wildlife commission meeting and report and report back to my local Audubon chapter about what was discussedPersonal* Switch my light bulbs to compact fluorescent bulbs or LEDs* Reduce my car travel, or use public transportation when possible* Use less energy to heat/cool my house* Conserve water in my home and use less hot water* Set a goal of reducing my household waste by half in the next year by recycling and buying less packaged goods
