TAKE ACTION

Sign the Petition Thanking Gov. Whitmer for taking meaningful action on climate.

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.

Governor Whitmer:

Your directive to enter Michigan into the U.S. Climate Alliance is exactly what is needed to jumpstart Michigan's action to address the worse effects of a warming climate. We wholeheartedly thank you for taking this action and pledge to work with you to rapidly move Michigan towards a clean energy economy.

Thank you for working to protect our air, water, and land for us and future generations.

Read more about the executive orders that were voted down that would have reorganized the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to include offices that address water, climate, and energy.

    This is LONG overdue! The Republicans in the state House do NOT represent the majority of Michiganaders, and they only got there illegally, via gerrymandered districts.

    We have VERY little time to alter habitual actions contributing to drastic climate change activity (e.g. flooding, more severe weather patterns, &c) — our Governor’s EOs attempted compliance w/an international accord forsaken by our President’s ego \ There are merely a dozen years before…

    Climate change is real. Water is life. Clean air is a necessity. Clean land means food for all. Thank you, Governor Whitmer for recognizing the need to protect Michigan’s precious resources.

    Why doesn’t the GOP want to help save the planet? Don’t they live here?
