I know many of you are concerned about climate change, and want us to
pass a law to fix it. This note is for you. I know others of you are
skeptical. Here's your chance to hit the delete key.

Citizens need to know that the current legislative proposals in
Congress to fix climate change are weak and being severely weakened.
Although some of the very large environmental groups in DC are still
supporting the Waxman-Markey bill (aka, American Clean Energy and
Security act - ACES), many other environmental groups are troubled
with the flaws.

At this point, I understand that the Cap & Trade title being
considered in the House has been weakened by massive allocations of
pollution rights to the polluters. In carving-up the right to
pollute, the hope was that we would use the market to benefit people
and the environment. By selling these CO2 pollution permits, we would
raise revenues to help the less fortunate in society as we all grapple
with rising energy costs. That was the idea. But in reality, it's
not worked out so well.

From what I'm told, only about 15% of the pie will go to low and
moderate income people. 36% goes to electric utilities and carmakers.
At least 60% of the revenues derived from the bill will go to the
very people who have got us into this mess.

I note that great numbers of economists find this unacceptable: 600 of
them agreed that giving credits away to polluters for free will only
saddle consumers with higher prices while polluters walk away with
windfall profits.

There is an argument that we should pass this weak Cap & Trade bill
now, while we have the political will and opportunity. If the bill
hadn't given away the whole pie, but merely had weak caps and
timelines, I would agree. But once you give away the right to
pollute, it becomes an entitlement, and we'll never be able to take it
away. Every industry receiving these windfall funds will fight tooth
and nail to keep them in future.

For these reasons, I am deeply concerned that groups like EDF are
promoting this as good policy. (See below.) And fundraising on it,
to boot.

Here's James Hansen's take on the situation:

Watch carefully, folks. We Americans are contemplating the single
largest giveaway in human history. It is literally the
commoditization of the atmosphere: If we don't get it right, the
implications are global.

Subject: Climate Vote Coming -- What's at Stake?

Dear John,

Only 5 days left to match your emergency donation.

Please donate now and your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

Even as we celebrate the President's historic proposals on fuel
economy, the House Energy and Commerce Committee is finalizing work on
landmark climate legislation. A vote could come at any time but the
outcome is far from certain.

If the Committee votes yes, it would set the stage for historic action
in the full House and Senate.

If the Committee votes no, our legislative team says it could be years
before we get this close again. There are just too many other key
priorities on the President's agenda.

We need your help to seize this critical momentum and keep the pressure on.

And if you donate before Memorial Day, your emergency donation to
Operation: Climate Vote will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

The opposition is doing everything they can to defeat this bill. A new
report from the Center for Responsive Politics reveals that in the
first three months of 2009, our opponents spent $80 million on direct
lobbying alone.

That figure doesn't include the tens of millions more spent on
political contributions and paid advertising.

And to add insult to injury among the lavishly paid hired guns working
to defeat climate legislation are top Bush Administration
environmental officials -- many of the same officials who worked to
block action over the last 8 years.

We're at a make-or-break moment.

Your donation right now will go twice as far to help us ramp up our
campaign efforts, buy more ad time, and do more on-the-ground field

Here's what we plan to do with your emergency donation:

Our Air Campaign -- We have placed hard-hitting truth-telling ads in
key states and those all-important swing Congressional districts to
help secure the votes to get a strong bill passed. With your donation,
we can buy more ads to shore up swing votes on Committee.

Our Ground Campaign -- Our grassroots organizing team is going door to
door and community to community to raise public concern and mobilize
voters to demand a strong bill in Washington. Your donation will help
keep these efforts going.

Our Cyber Campaign -- Through our Truth Squad blog and our Operation:
Climate Vote hub page, we are using the power of the Internet to
identify the false claims and scare tactics of the climate deniers,
and to shine a spotlight on their cynical efforts to stop progress.

Your support will give us the resources we need to intensify our
online communications efforts.

For only 5 more days, your emergency contribution will be matched

Your donation will never make a bigger difference than it will today.

One way or another, we are making history in 2009. Whether this
becomes the year we changed America's direction or the one in which we
lost one of our last great opportunities to act is up to us.

Please join me.
