16 of Your Favorite Things Climate Change Is Ruining

16 of Your Favorite Things Climate Change Is Ruiningreports Ryan Koronowski atClimate Progress are: beer, football, maple syrup, hiking, chili peppers, coffee, sweaters, chocolate, wine, fishing, panda bears, Tour de France, surfing, peanut butter, fireworks. Climate change endangers the barley and hops used to make beer, creates lethal heat stress during football practice with droughts drying up football fields, encourages the growth of poison ivy, the scourge of hikers, and is making it more difficult to raise sheep, wine grapes, apples, chocolate, peanuts, and chilies, among other affected crops and livestock.  Warming oceans and lakes are making it more difficult for fish to thrive. Ultimately, climate change will affect everything we treasure in life. It’s time to start doing something about it now.  Voting in leaders who recognize this and will strongly support the development of clean energy is an important way that most of us can help.


Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is in 2 years!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
