The Trump White House has made it official: The U.S. will formally withdraw from the landmark Paris Agreement, now standing alone as the only country not participating in this groundbreaking climate accord. While the rest of the world moves forward through global action, President Trump has pushed us firmly into the past.
But while we continue to fight for US leadership in the international effort to tackle the climate crisis, we still have the chance to unleash something new in the United States — a 100% clean future. We're asking Congress to take the first step to get us there, and demanding bold policies that drive down climate pollution across every sector, from transportation to electricity to manufacturing.
Take action: Tell your member of Congress to sign onto the 100% Clean Economy Act as an original cosponsor.
SUBJECT: Cosponsor the 100% Clean Economy Act
Dear [Decision Maker],
I urge you to become an original cosponsor of the 100% Clean Economy Act.
According to the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, we only have until the year 2050 to stop adding more climate pollution to the atmosphere than we can remove. If we fail to do this, we will experience the worst effects of climate chaos.
A soon-to-be-announced bill will require federal agencies to begin using their authority to move America towards a 100% clean energy economy. It will put us on the path to dramatically cutting pollution across all sectors of our economy, while also creating new jobs and protecting the health of our most vulnerable communities.
As the effects of climate change worsen, and as our climate innovations and technology improve, we need to push for bold policies that make net-zero emissions possible. Please take this opportunity to be the leader America deserves, by becoming an original cosponsor of a 100% clean energy economy bill.
