Public opinion on climate, the farm bill, and matching funds

Thanks in part to your help informing Congress about clean energy and climate change, this year is off to a great start! Did you hear that the new farm bill includes significant wins for clean energy on American farms and for the American economy?

The farm bill includes funding for loans for rural electric cooperatives to help their customers improve their home energy efficiency with low-interest loans--something EESI has been working on for years, with your help. 

Did you also know that you helped us organize a briefing to tell Congress that over three-quarters of the American public still believes the Earth is warming, despite hundreds of millions of dollars spent to influence the public's opinions on climate? You did!

And now you can multiple your impact even more when you give again on Global Giving's Bonus Day, tomorrow!

Global Giving is offering a 30% match on donations up to $1,000 tomorrow starting at 9am. Up to $75,000 available in matching is available. We're also competing for a a $1,000 bonus award for most individual donors and another $1,000 bonus award for most money raised! Matching lasts until funds run out that day, so please give to help Congress understand energy and climate starting at 9am EST tomorrow. Thanks!

Your gift will help us bring forth a series on climate impacts in regions across the United States. The first of these will happen the day after Bonus Day, looking at how the American Southwest is becoming hotter and drier. With your continued support, we'll also examine climate impacts in other regions.

Thanks so much for your past support and for helping us move ahead on Global Giving Bonus Day tomorrow starting at 9am.

Most Americans want action on climate change.
