Open Letter Indiegogo Campaign

Woohoo! 308 heroic humans contributed $34,853 to get the Open Letter published in the LA Times on Sunday, November 10th. The remainder went to the Alliance on Climate Education.

FAQ: What do you hope the Open Letter will accomplish?

Posted on

We hope the letter will raise the profile of the issue of climate change.

The more public pressure political leaders feel, the more likely they will be to take action via legislation (see the American Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s for some precedent).

The more public pressure energy execs feel, the more likely they will be to stop denying climate change and start investing in renewables (see the tobacco industry for some precedent).

The more public pressure media leaders feel, the more likely they will be to cover climate change and to relate it to everything else they’re covering (see the Vietnam War for some precedent).

The more public pressure wealthy people feel, the more likely they will be to divest from fossil fuels (see apartheid for some precedent).
