America is founded upon one principle above all others: freedom. Individual liberty, religious liberty, freedom of expression, freedom from tyranny, freedom from oppression—these are the bedrock of our nation. And catastrophic climate change threatens all of those freedoms.
Tyranny and oppression grow from the soils of crisis. When resources diminish and chaos flourishes, tyrants rise and individual liberties vanish. The Pro-Climate movement believes that if we allow catastrophic climate change to derail America's future, we risk the freedom that defines us.
Robust, efficient new energy sources and forward-thinking climate-change policy are keys to securing our nation against those diminishing resources and future chaos. At Cross the Aisle for Climate, we firmly believe that by protecting our climate, we are protecting the principles that have defined American liberty for the last two-and-a-half centuries.
