100% Clean. 100% Possible.

Burning oil, gas and coal has not only polluted our air, water and land for decades. Now it’s changing our climate even faster than scientists feared it would. We can have healthier communities right now and a livable future for kids growing up today. But to get there, we need to transform the way we produce and consume energy.

That's why we’re calling for a nationwide commitment to 100% renewable power.

It’s a big, bold goal, one that would make America a world leader in the race toward a cleaner, healthier future — and it’s a goal that’s 100% possible.

Apple, Facebook, Google and more

Companies and municipalities are already making moves.

Consider: Companies ranging from Apple, Google and Facebook to Johnson & Johnson and Coca Cola have already committed to going 100% renewable. So have cities like San Diego, Rochester, Minn., and Lancaster, Calif.

Some cities, like Greensburg, Kan., Burlington, Vt. and Aspen, Colo., have already achieved 100% renewable energy.

Going 100% renewable is 100% possible.

What's more, solar power has tripled in America in just the last two years — with a new home or business going solar every one and a half minutes. In many states, wind power is now cheaper than gas or coal. Clean energy keeps growing faster, with prices dropping lower than even the most optimistic industry predictions of just a few years ago.

But we can do more, and we must do more to stave off the worst effects of climate change.

We need to keep building momentum

It’s time to stop letting some slow-moving politicians drag their feet and start pushing them to step up and lead.

It’s time to sweep past the big energy interests — from Big Oil and gas companies like ExxonMobil and Chevron to utilities like Duke Energy and Pacific Gas & Electric, from climate deniers in Congress to the Koch brothers — that are not only standing in the way, but using their financial might and political clout to roll back renewable energy’s progress.

Join our call, and help your community go 100% renewable.

The more people who join our call for 100% renewable power, the more local, state, national and corporate leaders will step up and take action that will make a difference now and get us on the right track for the future.

Why wait?

And we can’t wait: Scientists say we must stop burning virtually all fossil fuels by 2050 in order to spare kids growing up today from the devastating impacts of climate change.

And why should we wait?

Why wait for healthier communities with cleaner air and water when we can have them today?

Why wait until it’s impossible to leave the kids we know and love a safer, healthier tomorrow?

Why wait, when we can start changing the conversation about how we produce and consume energy — so it’s no longer a question of whether we’ll get to 100% renewable power, but how fast?

Why wait, when America has the responsibility, the ingenuity and the will to start leading the world to a 100% renewable future right now?

We’ve got the power 

We’re ready for this. Our national network has done more to promote solar, wind and energy efficiency on the state and local level than any other group in the country. We’ve won clean energy policies, from pro-solar initiatives to clean cars programs to renewable energy standards in 22 states, all of which are driving down the costs of wind and solar, and driving down carbon pollution.

Now we need you to join this movement and the first step is an easy one: Add your name in support of a 100% renewable future.

Together, we can do this. A 100% renewable future based on 100% American-made energy is 100% possible. And it starts now.

Groups tell Biden Administration: Let Older Trees Grow

ATLANTA, GA — Environment Georgia, SELC, Environment America, and dozens of other conservation groups launched an effort Tuesday to focus on protecting mature trees and forests on federal lands that are most critical in the fight against climate change. The Climate Forests campaign is calling on the Biden administration to kick off a new era of climate and forest policy in which trees and forests are valued as key pieces of the climate solution.

Statement: Nearly $20 Million for EV charging in Georgia

 “Building a statewide and national network of EV charging stations is just what Georgia needs to make the  transition to electric vehicles. It gives Georgians the right infrastructure to reduce air pollution and tackle the climate crisis by switching to zero-emission vehicles,” said “Tragically, pollution from cars, trucks and other vehicles cuts short an estimated 58,000 lives every year. This step toward an all-electric, zero-emission future is essential to ensure cleaner air for all.”
