Do You Live in the US? Are You Looking for Something to do in August?

How about lobbying your local senator? The Energy Action Coalition; The Hub of the Youth Climate Movement, is calling on young people across the country to speak to senators in their states about the US Senate decision last week not to act on climate protection legislation. The reason for this decision, according to the Energy Action Coalition, is because "Big Oil and Dirty Coal are funding their political campaigns." What are your thoughts about this?

Arielle Klagsburn, a student from St. Louis, Missouri, asked her senator about her reasons for that decision. Her experience is captured in the Youtube video below.

Political activism is not for the faint of heart, but if you have the stomach for it, you could have a very interesting August. Let us know if you've had a chance to speak to your senator and what they had to say in our feedback section below.
