Overnight tragedy in Redding

RL Miller  info@climatehawksvote.com

July 27, 2018 1:09 PM
 
Last night, a wildfire barrelled out of control toward the city of Redding in northern California. Firefighters gave up on trying to save structures and simply focused on evacuating the city. As I write, parts of the city of 90,000 are burning uncontrollably.

Perhaps you’ve seen some of the surreal news coverage. A local TV station’s crew evacuated on-air. An evacuation center was itself evacuated as the fire moved so quickly.

Two firefighters have died ☠️ so far. Dozens of homes have been destroyed. And right now it’s only 3 percent contained.

This is what the future looks like. And it will get even worse unless we elect more leaders willing to stand up to the fossil fuel industry and take bold action to protect the climate.



The fire in Redding is the third major wildfire 🔥🔥🔥 burning in California this week -- the Ferguson fire has forced the closure of Yosemite Valley, and the Cranston fire is burning the mountains east of Los Angeles.

The world seems to be ablaze — fires in Sweden and Finland above the Arctic circle, fires in Greece killing dozens, deadly heat 🌡️ in Japan and Texas.

Of course, you and I know that climate change is fueling these disasters. The four hottest years ever recorded were the last four years, and 2018 will almost certainly be the fifth.

Yet, even amidst the real human misery climate change is already calling there are stories of heroism, communities pulling together, and leaders stepping forward to act on climate change.

But we need more such leaders. A lot more. We need a new Congress who’ll take climate change seriously and drive our economy as quickly as possible to 100% renewable.

Here at Climate Hawks Vote, we know our role: We have ambitious plans to mobilize and persuade more voters than ever before this fall via phone and digital communications — targeting infrequent voters for whom climate is a persuasive message.

Put simply, the more donors who sign on as recurring in the next couple of weeks, the more we can budget for our fall campaigns and the advocacy work that will follow.

Can you make a recurring donation to Climate Hawks Vote to fuel our critical electoral work?

Together, we can build a better future.

Your fellow climate hawk,

RL Miller
