The American Civil Liberties Union
The ACLU dares to create a more perfect union — beyond one person, party, or side. Their mission is to realize this promise of the United States Constitution for all and expand the reach of its guarantees.
The ACLU has been at the center of nearly every major civil liberties battle in the U.S. for over 100 years. This vital work depends on the support of ACLU members in all 50 states and beyond.
The Environment & Wild Life
Environmental issues are very close to our hearts and hopefully to yours also. We believe that our Planet is in serious danger. If we do not help in preserving, restoring and saving it, the next generation’s future will be very sad and very bleak.
We support The World Wildlife (WWF) because we want to protect the future of our planet and future generations.
Deforestation, climate change, water scarcity, and illegal wildlife trade. These are some of the threats facing our planet today—and no one person or group can tackle them alone.
But if we work together, we can take on anything. We can protect the very things that keep us alive: our forests, our oceans, our fresh water, our wildlife, our energy supply, our food supply.
Global climate change has already had dramatic effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner.
- Change will continue through this century and beyond
- Temperatures will continue to rise
- Frost-free season (and growing season) will lengthen
- Changes in precipitation patterns
- More droughts and heat waves
- Hurricanes will become stronger and more intense
- Sea level will rise 1-4 feet by 2100
- Arctic likely to become ice-free
Some of the effects we all have seen and/or heard of:
Heat waves, heavy downpours and sea level rise pose growing challenges.
Changes in the timing of streamflow reduce water supplies for competing demands.
Sea level rise, erosion, inundation. Increasing wildfire, insect outbreaks and tree diseases are causing widespread tree die-off.
