We started off the month with giving #climatethanks, a national initiative launched by the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication on twitter, to honor the individuals and organizations like ours working tirelessly to raise awareness and create climate change solutions. We thanked all of our climate champions in Minnesota, our clean energy leaders, our youth and educators, and partner organizations. Of course, our largest thanks goes out to you – for supporting our work and helping us in the fight for a safe climate.

We hope you’ve heard the President’s Climate Change plan to cut carbon pollution: taking action for youth and future generations! The President articulated a three pronged approach in taking steps toward reversing the effects of climate change and leaving a more sustainable future for our children: 1) Cut carbon pollution in America 2) Prepare the U.S. for the impacts of climate change and 3) Lead international efforts to address climate change.
The president is gearing up for a big speech in which he'll unveil his second-term climate plan. The plan, which will be announced Tuesday, not only discusses how the nation will reduce carbon emissions, but also help prepare the U.S. for the near-term impacts of climate change.
