About Climate Bird Dogs


Because of the Iowa Caucuses, Iowans are uniquely situated to advance the national debate on climate. We have both the opportunity and an obligation to compel candidates, the media, and voters to prioritize the climate crisis. We’re chronicling our efforts here and letting people across the country know where candidates stand. Then on February 1, 2020, join the Climate Crisis Parade to rally the global news media to do a better job covering climate.

We push candidates to:

— Make the climate crisis their top priority;
— Support the Green New Deal;
— Oppose oil pipelines, fracking, and other fossil-fuel projects;
— Speak out against the proposed expansion of DAPL;
— Stand with Indigenous Iowans to defend sovereignty, land, and water;
— Oppose the abuse of eminent domain to take farmland for private gain.

Partners: Indigenous Iowa, Seeding Sovereignty, Sage Sisters, Climate Action Iowa, and over 250 volunteers like you.
