Congressional Climate Phone-A-Thon - It's Not Too Late To Call Congress

posted Jun 19, 2013, 2:19 PM by Rob Hogg   [ updated Jun 29, 2013, 11:58 AM ]

On June 24 to June 26, Iowa Climate Advocates sponsored a Congressional "Climate Phone-A-Thon."  It was a success, with more than 50 people calling our Congressional representatives in Washington, DC, while Citizens Climate Lobby held its national conference and lobby days.  One CCL participant reported being in a Congressional office in DC when the receptionist took a call in support of legislation to fight climate change.

If you would like to call Iowa's Congressional delegation, here are the numbers to call:

> Congressman Bruce Braley, 202-225-2911 or 319-287-3233

> Congressman Tom Latham, 202-225-5476 or 515-282-1909

> Congressman Steve King, 202-225-4426 or 712-224-4692

> Congressman Dave Loebsack, 202-225-6576 or 319-351-0789

> Senator Chuck Grassley, 202-224-3744 or 515-288-1145

> Senator Tom Harkin, 202-224-3254 or 515-284-4574

A do-something Congress would do something about climate change, especially after the heat and drought of 2012, Hurricane Sandy, and the climate-related disasters across America in 2013 (floods in San Antonio, Arkansas, and Iowa; tornadoes through Oklahoma; wildfires in Colorado and California; and record heat in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest).

Please call today, and report them to SenatorRobHogg@gmail.com.  Thank you.
