LETTER TO:

The Chair and Vice Chair for the House/Senate full Appropriations Committee and SubCommittees Responsible for funding the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy "Mission Innovation".


We are writing to express our concern about the imminent threat climate change poses to our country, to our people and the future of our children. An overwhelming number of scientists agree, and signs abound that climate change is occurring much faster than was initially predicted. We have only a few critical years before the changes become irreversible.

More than 2,000 scientists contributing to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have made it clear that cuts of at least 50% to 70% in global greenhouse gas emissions are necessary to allow our climate to re-stabilise. Therefore, the Government should be making every effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions – now.

Specifically, we believe the USA should allocate full funding for the 2017 EPA and Dept. of Energy "Mission Innovation" initiative. Total funds appropriated would be $8.267Billion and $5.201Billion respectfully. Time2RallyUSA will support efforts to monitor the Return on Investments for these departments which will lead the USA and the world in fighting Global Climate Change and Sea Rise.

Benefits to appropriating full funding:

1. The EPA and Dept. of Energy are the two main agencies the USA/Federal Government are relying on to lead our efforts in fighting Global Climate Change and Sea Rise.

2. By meeting our Paris Agreement to double R&D spending over 5 years on Clean Energy Technologies we meet our UN Climate Change Paris Agreement Commitment to Mission Innovation. Holding theater 22 leading Carbon emitting countries obligated to do the same.

3. Partnering with the Bill Gates "Breakthrough Energy Coalition" offers additional funding and a rapid response to deploy promising technologies to reduce Global Climate Change and Sea Rise.

We understand that focusing on climate change is just one of many issues during these challenging times. However, we can not wait until tomorrow and must take strong action now to address these daunting issues that Global Climate Change and Sea Rise represent to our way of life.

We thank you in advance for making this a top priority and for your continued service to our nation.

Respectfully,

Time2RallyUSA!
