Actress Kyra Sedgwick has urged her fans to put pressure on U.S. legislators to implement a climate change law - because she's "terrified" of what the future will hold without it.
The Closer star is angry that a proposed new climate bill, designed to cut greenhouse gas emissions, was rejected by U.S. Congress members last month (Jul10).
And she's calling on her online followers to contact their local senators in a bid to have the decision reversed.
In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "Nothing is more depressing than congress deciding to not pursue Climate Change legislation. I am terrified for all of us. Especially the children.
"If you feel the same way, call or write (sic) your senators to tell them you're disappointed."
