It’s time to move to 100% clean

The United States can address the threat of climate change by moving to a 100% clean economy, creating jobs and reasserting American leadership in the process. A 100% clean America will protect our economy, our health, and our children’s future.

Congress: Support climate action now

We need our leaders to put forth smart solutions that move our economy toward 100% clean energy.

What does it mean to move to 100% clean?

As part of a global solution, the United States must stop adding climate pollution to the atmosphere by 2050.

That means replacing carbon-emitting energy with wind, solar, and other clean sources of energy across all sectors of our economy —from transportation and manufacturing to the electric sector—and producing no more climate pollution than we can remove from the atmosphere.

100% clean is 100% achievable

Hurricane flooding

American ingenuity has unlocked innovative solutions that have put humans on the moon, cured diseases, and ushered in the digital age. That same spirit is needed to transition us to a 100% clean economy.

Potential breakthrough technologies are on the horizon, from utility-scale energy storage, which can enable us to use far more renewable power, to innovations that are transforming transportation, to new means of capturing and storing carbon that is already in the air.

In the last decade, solar energy prices have dropped nearly 90%. Wind power is almost 70% cheaper. 100% clean is closer than you might think.

We all stand to gain. With the right policies in place, farmers can profit by adopting practices that take carbon out of the atmosphere, Communities can access low-cost energy while keeping families healthy and protected from air pollution.

Now is the time to unleash that entrepreneurial spirit to create a 100% clean future that will protect our air and water, improve children’s health, protect national security, and create millions of jobs for Americans. Let’s get to work.

We can't afford to wait!

Hurricane flooding

Climate change puts our families and communities at risk by worsening wildfires, increasing the severity of hurricanes, exacerbating drought and causing record-breaking heat waves, and more.

Recent studies have found the number of extreme weather-related events per year that cost the American people more than one billion dollars has increased significantly since 1980.

Over the last decade, the federal government has paid over more than $350 billion for domestic disaster response and relief; crop and flood insurance; wildfire management; and maintenance and repairs to federal facilities and federally managed lands, and more.

The Government Accountability Office estimates that these recurring costs could increase to $35 billion per year in the coming decades and to $112 billion per year by late-century.

We cannot allow our Congressional leaders to ignore these increasing threats to our health, safety, and economy.

Americans support action on climate

Diverse voices back solutions

Even as the Trump administration moves backwards, diverse and powerful companies and groups across the country are speaking out on the need to address climate change.
