Climate Emergency Twitter Storm
Start: Friday, April 24, 2020•12:00 PM
On April 22-24, the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, millions of people around the world are going online for a three-day mobilization to stop the climate emergency.
Join NC WARN for a Twitter storm at 12pm on Friday, April 24th to call on NC Governor Roy Cooper to declare a Climate Emergency as part of Earth Day Live. On March 13, 2020, over 70 organizations wrote to NC Governor Roy Cooper, asking him to use his authority to prevent future climate disasters. North Carolina communities are already being devastated by repeated climate disasters that are expected to grow worse, and scientists insist that new “natural” gas projects clash with global agreements to sharply reduce greenhouse gas emissions. States and utilities choosing renewables + storage projects over new gas plants are creating jobs while avoiding the health and explosion risks of natural gas.
Tweet @NC_Governor at 12pm on April 24th with the hashtags #ClimateEmergency and #StopDukeEnergy along with a short message as to why you think it is imperative that Governor Cooper be climate champion by declaring a Climate Emergency for our state and cancelling the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
