The climate crisis is affecting us all. Whether young or old, left or right, rich or poor, we are all in need of leadership to move our planet forward. We are standing together with the youth - even if they can't vote for you, the policies of your administration will determine the kind of future that will confront them.
We need to know the answer to this question: What are you going to do? What is your plan to create a new energy future? What will you do to decrease the carbon in our atmosphere to a level which does not threaten our ability to live together on this planet? We need you to detail your plan for immediate action now.
My generation can no longer stand by while climate change is treated like a partisan talking point. Our nation is out of time for debate. Nearly 200 nations agreed to action in Paris -- will your administration work with them, or turn your back on them?
To meet our Paris commitments we will need to transition to a zero carbon energy economy by 2050. My generation demands you act with greater urgency. Scientists say we can and must end the use of fossil fuels within the next decade (2026), and we need you to start that switch on your first day in office.
With your party conventions approaching, we are urging you to include your plan to meet that goal as a centerpiece of your platform. The nation deserves the details needed to tell if you are serious, and the timelines to know if you can succeed. Share these elements when you address your party and officially become the nominees for our nation.
