Donald Trump is turning his back on the Paris Climate Agreement that the United States made with nearly 200 other nations last fall. This decision is bad for our economy, our jobs, and our planet. Combatting climate change should be straightforward. The majority of Americans and nearly all scientists agree we need to act now. If our democracy worked the way it's supposed to our lawmakers would follow the will of the people.
We have the technology, the workforce, and the need to transition our energy grid off of fossil fuels to 100% sustainability as soon as possible. Our allies in Congress are working to that end—Jeff Merkley, Bernie Sanders, and Ed Markey have introduced the “100 by '50” Act in the Senate to bring us to 100% renewable energy by 2050.
Let's face it: if America isn't going to lead the way on the global stage, another country will. With ever-widening income and wealth inequality and a deteriorating environment, we cannot afford to turn our backs on cutting edge technology that will save homes, save lives, and save our planet.
We're working against the clock. Your help fighting this reckless, vindictive decision by Donald Trump is needed now more than ever. Stand with us and support 100% clean energy by 2050. Together we can build the clean energy future that we need for this generation and those to come.
I will be there with you fighting this greed every day.
