Urge Texas Gov. Abbott to Meet With Climate Scientists

Dear Gov. Abbott,

Last week, 27 Texas climate scientists wrote to you, offering to sit down and brief you on the science of human-caused global warming and its projected impacts on Texas. They wrote that "climate change is happening, it is primarily caused by humans, and it is having a devastating impact on Texas, including increasing deadly flooding resulting from Hurricane Harvey."

It's not too late to act to protect the well-being of every Texan. But it requires leadership. So, as our leader and Governor, we urge you to put politics aside, take the scientists up their offer for a briefing, and then take steps to reduce Texas carbon emissions.
