Know what it takes to build a sustainable energy future?
What's at stake?
The politicization of climate policy is having a profoundly counterproductive impact on our ability to accomplish meaningful reductions in GHG emissions from the energy sector. In statehouses across the country, we’re asking legislators to do some of the hardest and most consequential work of their careers with a half-empty toolbox. We’re shutting entire industries out of the solutions process, some at the forefront of decarbonization technology and research. Too often, we’re allowing electoral outcomes – rather than science and data – to guide our approach to climate change. As a result, we’re making no more than incremental progress, at best.
While our energy systems and strategies are layered and complex, a truly effective and enduring approach to a more sustainable energy future should be grounded in and constantly evaluated against a core set of guiding principles.
Spread the knowledge!
Together, we can empower the next generation of informed advocates and help drive real solutions towards a more sustainable energy future. Do your part to increase awareness of the plain (but not always simple) facts about climate and energy policymaking with downloadable graphics for social media.
