Moms Clean Air Force demands climate action. NOW. We have waited long enough.
We are already experiencing the negative impacts of climate change in our daily lives. Families across the nation are feeling the declines in air quality due to feverish and unnecessary deregulation. This dangerous activity not only threatens our health and well-being, but the uncertainty it is creating for our household wallets isn’t good for our economy either. Meantime, it is way past time to bring climate pollution under control.
We are pressing our elected leaders in Congress to follow the advice of scientists, and cut carbon and methane climate pollution, now. We have lots of tools to use. We know how to do this.
We are pushing national legislation that sets an ambitious but doable goal: 100% clean energy across the economy by 2050. And that means getting started right away.
Moms know what 100% means. We give 100% of ourselves to our families every single day.
To get us to climate safety, 100% means:
- No climate pollution from the way we generate electricity.
- No climate pollution from the trucks and cars we use.
- No climate pollution from the buildings we live and work in.
- No climate pollution from the way we farm.
If we do this, we will maintain our leadership in the landmark international Paris Climate Agreement. We will help ensure that humanity is on a path to climate safety. We will invest in the clean energy technology the world wants.
Rep. Donald McEachin of Virginia is working on a bill to set the 100% Clean vision. All lawmakers who care about the crisis – and that should be anyone who cares about the safety and health of our families – should be on board.
By moving to clean energy in three decades, we can better protect the most vulnerable populations among us: children, older adults, pregnant women, those whose health is compromised, and communities that live near the sources of pollution, which includes communities of color and low-income communities.
Why 100% Clean? It is simple, really.
- We want our kids healthy and protected 100% of the time
- We want our kids to eat 100% of the vegetables on their plates
- We ask that our kids brush 100% of their teeth to be clean
- We want our kids to give 100% of their potential to school work
And now we are asking our Congress to give it 100%. 100% Clean Energy. Now.
100% Clean Energy across America’s economy means NO MORE CLIMATE POLLUTION. And we have to get to work. Now.
