California’s Prop. 23 Threatens Wildlife Everywhere: Vote NO on November 2
With your help, WWF has spent 50 years conserving the most magnificent landscapes and species in the world. Some of our greatest conservation successes, however, are now being unraveled by dramatic climate shifts. The habitats of wildlife –from tigers in India to marine turtles in the Gulf of Mexico –are being threatened by the carbon pollution that warms our planet.
Right now the greatest risk to our climate is on the California ballot on November 2: Proposition 23. Led by a group of the nation’s biggest polluters, Proposition 23, if passed, will kill California’s landmark climate and clean energy legislation which has made the state a leader in clean technology investments and serves as a successful blueprint for other states and our nation to follow.
If this proposition is passed, it will hinder WWF's work to protect species and their habitats from the consequences of climate change, and hurt California’s economy in the process.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Please help protect our planet and show your support for a clean energy economy. Here are two ways to help:
1. If you live in California, go to the polls and vote NO to Prop 23 on Tuesday, November 2, 2010
