From droughts and extreme heat to flooding, hurricanes, wildfires, and rising sea levels, communities across the country are already feeling the impact of the climate crisis firsthand.
Climate change is the greatest threat to our country and the world. A report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) explains that if we want to avoid the worst effects of climate chaos, then we must move to a 100% clean energy economy by 2050—which is just 30 years from now. We have no time to waste. Government leaders and grassroots activists alike have embraced a bold vision to eliminate carbon pollution and ensure a 100% clean energy future.
This future is only possible if leaders educate themselves on this issue,support solutions that spur clean energy development, and create high-quality jobs—all while ensuring all Americans have clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. This is no small task, but we are up to the challenge because this movement is driven by everyday people pledging to reject dirty fossil fuels and sharing why this movement is too critical to ignore.
Legislators at all levels have the capacity to make big changes for their communities. Email your state and federal elected leaders to urge them to learn more about why our health, economy, and future are on the line, and tell them to join the call for a 100% clean future.
