We Want 100% Clean Energy by 2050
We are facing a climate crisis. We need to act boldly and urgently to keep our children safe.
It’s time for our leaders to set a goal: Eliminate the pollution that is causing climate change by 2050. That means 100% clean energy, across the entire economy.
It’s ambitious, but we can do it. And for our kids, we have to do it.
100% Clean isn’t just about household electricity. We are demanding 100% clean energy, everywhere. To fight climate change, we need 100% clean energy across our entire economy—meaning our cars and trucks won’t pollute, and neither will the way we raise our food, or the way we build the places in which we work and live. It means our industries and infrastructure get fully modernized, too.
What are the effects of climate change?
Our atmosphere is getting warmer and our weather is getting more extreme, due to pollution from human activity. Carbon dioxide and methane are two of the most important pollutants causing climate change right now. These pollutants come from coal plants, cars and trucks, natural gas operations, and other sources.
Health professionals around the world are sounding the alarm: Climate change has grave public health impacts, and our children will suffer the most.
Rising temperatures, extreme weather, disruptions to the food supply, and increases in ground level ozone are all symptoms of our climate chaos. As these symptoms worsen, they will lead in turn to a cascade of overlapping health problems: more asthma attacks, the spread of vector-borne diseases, an increase in heat-related illnesses, mental health problems, and more.
What you can do.
Moms Clean Air Force urges legislators to move us on a path to climate safety by mandating the use of 100% Clean Energy across the country by 2050 years. We demand ambitious goals with real timelines.
TAKE ACTION: Right now, several bills have been presented, by Republicans as well as by Democrats, to address ways of cutting carbon emissions. It is imperative that we keep demanding legislative solutions.
There will a great deal of work to do — across the country and in every facet of our economy—to achieve these goals. But stating a goal, and honoring it, is critical to actually setting out in the right direction.
Right now, with EPA rollbacks and harmful climate pollution on the rise, we are heading towards a global emergency.
Our determination to get to 100% Clean Energy by 2050 puts us on a path to climate safety, right away.
