Billie Eilish Leads Artists Calling For Congress To Act On Climate Change


 According to billboard Billie Eilish is among a host of artists who are calling on Congress to support President Joe Biden’s bill on strong climate change provisions.


Eilish’s brother Finneas, Maroon 5 and Brittany Howard are also among artists who will launch a campaign next Wednesday (September 22) by posting images of a large red exclamation point, alternating with scenes of extreme weather conditions, while using the hashtags #CodeRedClimate and #CodeRedCongress on their social media pages.


The campaign will include a link to a page where fans can email their local representatives and push support for the largest climate protection bill in American history.


Later this month, Congress will vote on the bill which will outline how to get the country to 80 per cent pollution-free electricity by 2030, provide tax incentives for solar, wind, energy-efficiency, electric cars, charging stations and cut subsidies for fossil fuels.



If the Build Back Better bill passes, President Biden can enter global climate negotiations on November 1 with America setting out to cut climate pollution 100 per cent by 2050 while also encouraging other major nations to act accordingly.


Other artists and actors participating in the #CodeRedClimate campaign include Public Enemy’s Chuck D, Dave Matthews Band, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jane Fonda and Mark Ruffalo.
