This March, wind power became one of the leading producers of electricity in the U.S.
In fact, for the very first time
, it even overtook nuclear and coal as sources of electricity. This is proof that renewable, Earth-friendly resources can be potent enough to fuel our future. And this isn't even counting other prominent sustainable sources, like solar, hydro-powered, or geothermal!Green, renewable energy is the way of the future -- and of our present. Sign the petition to demand the U.S. government invest more money in producing sustainable initiatives!Fossil fuels are the single largest source of carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S., which itself is the second-largest emitter of greenhouse gases.
While coal coats workers' lungs, bringing them severe illness and even death, and all fossil fuels pollute the planet, green energy helps us live our modern lives without ravaging the Earth.
Instead of creating climate change-inducing emissions, green energy can help us slow our contributions to a warming globe. The more we substitute out harmful fossil fuels and turn to renewables, the more we can heal our world.
On top of that, coal, oil, and gas resources are constantly declining over time -- there is a limited supply hidden under our planet's crust, and once we use it all up, it will be gone. By contrast, wind and solar energy harness natural resources without diminishing or destroying them.
The sun still shines and the wind still blows!
Meanwhile, wind technicians in the U.S. are in high demand. This job is currently the fastest-growing role in the whole country. Not only will green energy help us pave a better path forward -- it's also supplying people with valuable jobs.Every time we turn on a light or use an appliance, we should be able to rest easy knowing we're not hurting our entire planet in the process.
If wind alone can outshine nuclear and coal power, then what can all renewables do together?Our future is clear: if we want to be pollution-free and climate-smart, we MUST invest more in green energy, now. Sign the petition if you agree!
