Dear greensmile,

Our next President can begin the real battle against global warming.

Or not.

Force the candidates to take a stand.

Donate today.

LCV's good friend and environmental ally Robert Redford sent you a message the other day, asking you to support our Heat Is On campaign at this critical stage in the presidential primaries.

We need to be able to keep the pressure on the presidential candidates each and every day of the primary campaign - especially with the debates coming up.

A generous donor has agreed to match dollar for dollar the next $5,000 that we raise. Help us take advantage of this great offer before our deadline tomorrow.

Don't wait to give! Click here to contribute $35, $50, or $100 before the June 30th deadline.

As a long-time LCV supporter, you've been instrumental in helping us win environmental battles in the past. Global warming is now the defining issue of our day and it's time to make sure our next president is ready to tackle it.

LCV is making that possible. Across the country, The Heat Is On is already putting global warming front-and-center in the race for president by:

  • Organizing hundreds of volunteers to ask the candidates tough questions about their global warming plans;
  • Getting the first ever global warming questions asked in presidential debates;
  • Running ads in early voting states like New Hampshire and South Carolina that challenge the candidates; and
  • Educating political reporters about global warming and generating dozens of news stories on the importance of global warming in the 2008 election.

But we need to make sure we can keep up the pace as the race heats up. With the June 30th filing deadline fast approaching, the candidates are busy raising money and refining their platforms. We can't let them get ahead of us. Now is the time to make an impression - and force them to take a stand on global warming.

We're on the verge of making global warming a core issue in the 2008 elections - but we need your support, today, to help keep The Heat Is On going strong.

Make a secure online donation of $35, $50, or $100 today.

Our next leader will have the chance - and the responsibility - to set America, and the planet, on the right course. Help us make sure we have the chance to vote for the right leader.

Thank you for your continued commitment.
