UPDATE THURSDAY FEB 14: The Michigan Senate followed the House by voting today to overturn the executive order reorganizing the MDEQ that created the Office of Climate and Energy. Fortunately, this will not stop the Governor from entering Michigan into the U.S. Climate Alliance. Please sign this petition showing support for the kind of change we need to fight climate change.
Join us in thanking Gov. Whitmer for entering Michigan into the U.S. Climate Alliance, a bipartisan coalition of governors from 19 other states that have committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement. We applaud this kind of bold action - it's exactly what Michigan needs to accelerate action on climate change.
