The United Nations climate change conference is happening right now in Copenhagen. Will it be the turning point in the fight for a safe climate? World leaders have said that they don't plan to agree on a legally-binding climate agreement at this conference.

We are running out of time.

Join us in solemn solidarity with the citizens of those nations who will soon face a challenge to their very survival posed by climate change. Call for a science-based international climate treaty and effective U.S. legislation to get us back to the level of 350ppm of atmospheric CO2 concentrations.

Join with us in holding our leaders accountable. We need a Real Deal in Copenhagen!
