“Connect the Dots” and call Congress today!

On Saturday, May 5, 2012, Iowa Climate Advocates supported events around the state as part of the international day of action to “connect the dots” between climate change and the real world impacts it is having across our state and around our world. With the unfolding disasters this year, Iowa Climate Advocates urges Iowans again to "connect the dots" and take climate action this year, both personally and at a policy level.

Please contact Iowa’s congressional delegation by phone or letter:

ü Stop the Keystone XL pipeline

ü Extend the federal production tax credit for wind power
