Call Europe, rescue Copenhagen!

The Copenhagen climate summit is on the verge of collapse already -- developed countries have failed to lead the way with sufficient cuts and real money to finance a deal, and trust was lost when a flawed draft by the Danish hosts leaked today.

European nations have led the way on climate before. But so far in Copenhagen, we have failed to do our job. In these last short days, Europe’s leaders must rise to the moment and become true dealmakers.

Our leaders are meeting in Brussels this Thursday and Friday to decide how far they’ll go for a real deal in Copenhagen. Let’s flood them with thousands of phone calls from their own citizens, pressing them to rescue the summit by offering fairer and more ambitious proposals, instead of standing by and watching our future fall apart.

At the link, you’ll find everything you need to send your message – suggestions about what to say, the right phone numbers, and reports of how our calls are going.

After years of careful preparation, we can’t fail in the last days for a simple lack of leadership. Let’s do all we can to save the climate deal -- follow the link above to act now.

With hope and determination,

Paul, Iain, Benjamin, Alice, Milena, Ricken, Paula, Graziela, Taren and the whole Avaaz team
