Ask Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Co-Sponsor the Green New Deal

Ask Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Co-Sponsor the Green New Deal

Petition Text

H.Res. 109 -- the "Green New Deal" -- has 84 House co-sponsors, including 25 from California. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who represents most of San Francisco and is the leader of House Democrats, should be on that list.

Why is this important?

Every year's newly registered voters enter into political life with greater zeal for dealing with the planet's burgeoning environmental crisis than the prior year's. With the Green New Deal (aka, the Green Dream) we finally have a comprehensive statement of a way forward that leaves no one behind, and puts the right to live in a clean world and the right to make a decent living on equal footing.


Reasons for signing

  • The major danger to the planet is the on-going climate change. If we do not address this aggressively and realistically, all the rest of what we try to do is ultimately useless.
  • We need to take action on climate change before it is too late. Nancy Pelosi needs to stand strong and stop aiding Republicans with nonsense like paygo. "Compromising" with Republicans while they cheat at every turn is unacceptable!
  • If the democrats can't pass this watered down version of the 'green new deal' the get out of the way and let the Greens who created the real Green New Deal do the job!
