Tell the NV Legislature how you feel about global warming

Got an e-mail from the Nevada Conservation League about some legislation being heard in the Assembly on Thursday.

Remember: We can’t effect change if we are silent.
Here’s the details:

On Thursday, the Assembly Committee on Elections, Procedures, Ethics and Constitutional Amendments will hold a hearing on ACR 24, which would create an interim study on global warming and environmental pollutants. Global warming threatens the health of Nevada’s residents, as well as our environment. Nevadans are already feeling global warming’s impact on our climate in the form of severe droughts, wildfires, and decreased snowpack.

Tell the Committee your story:
How has global warming has affected you personally? Provide a personal story to illustrate the human impact of global warming.
Why is taking action on global warming in Nevada important to you? What would you like to see done?

Nevada Conservation League will be testifying in support of ACR 24. By telling the Committee your story and urging them to pass ACR 24, we can push Nevada’s leaders to take action on global warming.
