America's Clean Power Plan is under attack

 
 

We've said it before. We'll say it again. AMERICANS WANT CLEAN ENERGY.

We can all agree our families should have clean air to breathe and a safe climate to live in. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designed the Clean Power Plan to do just that, making dirty power plants cut the dangerous emissions choking our air and changing our climate.  

Now, that progress – and our climate – is under threat. 

Backed by powerful oil, coal, and gas companies, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has proposed repealing America’s Clean Power Plan, which would allow these companies to keep polluting our air and destroying our climate – regardless of what it means for everyday citizens or our planet.

Add your name to support America’s Clean Power Plan that protects our planet, our wallets, and our health.

A clean energy economy is good for our planet, our families, and our health. We strongly oppose repealing the Clean Power Plan and call on EPA to act on climate for the sake of all Americans.

24 hours of Reality: Be the Voice of Reality

 
 

The seventh-annual 24 Hours of Reality event is coming up on December 4-5, 2017, and will be hosted by former US Vice President Al Gore.

One day, once a year, we stand up together and demand real solutions to the climate crisis. Because when the world comes together, there is no challenge we cannot overcome.

This year's broadcast, 24 Hours of Reality: Be the Voice of Reality, will explore the extraordinary climate activism of Climate Reality Leaders and other engaged citizens across the planet, encouraging the millions watching to use their voices to speak up for solutions, science, and truth.

In the year since the landmark Paris Agreement entered into force, the world has seen significant developments that continue our progress on climate action and clean energy. Even in the US, where government leaders have retreated from the climate fight, citizens like you have stepped up to push for real solutions.

24 Hours of Reality: Be the Voice of Reality will highlight voices from around the world and share inspiring stories of political, business, and personal activism that illustrate how we can all make a difference - right when our planet needs us most.

The program will begin on Monday, December 4, at 6 PM EST and continue through Tuesday, December 5, at 6 PM EST, highlighting stories of activism from North America, Oceania, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and Central and South America. It will feature videos of Climate Reality Leaders from around the globe, live interviews with celebrities, thought leaders, and musical guests, and Vice President Gore will share his presentation in short segments throughout.

Check out the schedule to see when we are highlighting stories of activism from North America, Oceania, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and Central and South America.

100% Committed: The Future is Renewable

 
 

The shift to a clean energy economy is on – and accelerating by the day. Today, cities, businesses, and colleges and universities of all sizes are seeing the threat of climate change and taking action by switching to affordable renewable electricity from wind, solar, and other sources. By choosing renewables, they’re cutting their greenhouse gas emissions and creating a healthier environment for their citizens and customers – and a brighter future for our planet.

Year after year, the cost of wind, solar, and other renewable energy technologies continues to fall. In more and more regions of the US and around the world, energy from renewables is as cheap or cheaper than dirty fossil fuel energy. The result: shifting to 100 percent renewable electricity is easier and more affordable than most people realize, allowing you not only cut emissions but often also trim costs and save money in a big way.

We’re here to help. Join 100% Committed by pledging to help your community, business, or school shift to 100 percent renewable electric  and we’ll support you the whole way.

Already, we’ve helped communities like Salt Lake City, Park City, and Moab in Utah as well as Boulder and Aspen in Colorado and Shandaken in New York make the commitment. We’ve seen Colorado State University, University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point, Plymouth State University, and Hampshire College commit to renewable electricity. We’ve helped resorts like Belleayre, Gore, and Whiteface Mountain in New York, and St. Moritz move toward a clean energy future. The list goes on – and you could be next.

With the cost of clean energy plummeting every year, it’s never been easier or more affordable. As we like to say, 100 percent renewable is 100 percent doable.

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power

 
 

More than a decade after jumpstarting a global conversation on the climate crisis with the film An Inconvenient Truth, Climate Reality Founder and Chairman, and former US Vice President  Al Gore returns to the big screen with An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power tells the story of one man’s fight to solve this crisis at a time when the threat has never been clearer – and the reasons for hope have never been greater. We follow Vice President Gore as he travels the world training citizens as Climate Reality Leaders and building an international coalition to confront the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced.

This film arrives at a critical moment, as Vice President Gore, Climate Reality, and millions of Americans fight back against an administration that prioritizes the interests of fossil fuel corporations over the health of our planet.

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power reminds us what can happen when regular citizens take a stand. 

The film showcases Climate Reality Leadership Corps trainings, where people from all walks of life come to work with Vice President Gore and other experts, learning key climate science and gaining the skills to lead their communities in the fight for climate solutions.

Curious about what's changed for our planet since An Inconvenient Truth sparked a global movement against the climate crisis a decade ago? Check out The Climate Reality Project's blog post, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH THEN AND NOW: WHAT’S CHANGED FOR OUR CLIMATE SINCE 2006.

By the way, Vice President Gore’s own personal share of proceeds from the films go to support the exact same work documented in the film: equipping and training citizens to become world-changing activists through the Climate Reality Leadership Corps and other Climate Reality programs. To put it another way, when you see An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, you’re  helping support the fight for climate solutions.

Climate Changes, Truth Does Not. A decade after An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change into the heart of popular culture, comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power hit theaters on July 28, 2017 and can purchased online at a number of outlets.  #BeInconvenient
