Your Climate Legacy invites you to think about climate change not just from the standpoint of how it affects you now, but also about how it will affect your descendants – your children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and so on.
Your Climate Legacy is a non-profit project initiated by the Wedgemere Group as its personal way to help people understand the timeline and impact of climate change. Wedgemere has tried to keep the site factual and neutral. Wedgemere does not endorse any specific policy action.

If you are concerned about the world your descendants will face as a result of climate change, you should email or call your elected officials and other government leaders. Tell them that climate change is an issue you care about, and that the decisions they make about it may affect whether you vote for them or support their efforts.
Out of the 535 members of Congress, 84% have children and 27% have grandchildren. These members of Congress should care about what climate change will mean for their descendants. To contact your senators or representative, you can call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and simply ask for their office. If you want to email them, you will find contact information for your representatives here and your senators here.
If you want to contact the White House, you can call (202) 456-1111 or send an email.
Your state and local officials also have tremendous power when it comes to taking actions that can slow down climate change. Their phone numbers and email addresses are easily available on the web, and search engines like Google will lead you to them.
Contact your policy makers – do it for your descendants!
