we need to protect our air, land and water. Clean renewable energy, like wind and solar, can help us break free from fossil fuels and lower greenhouse gas emissions from power generation and transportation.
imposing a carbon tax while eliminating federal subsidies to producers of fossil fuels is a first step.
Stop fossil fuels
build 100% renewables
Clean energy jobs are now far outpacing fossil fuel jobs. Solar employs twice as many people as does coal.
we need to change or die. The science is clear and shows that climate change is real, and caused by ghg released by human industrial activity. As the biosphere gets warmer, we increase evaporation. And as we increase evaporation, ecosystems dry out and burn. And when soils get dry due to increased evaporation, we get longer heat waves. And longer heat waves make the biosphere warmer still. A hyper climate will end humans.
our health is linked to a clean environment.
greenhouse gas (ghg)
greenhouse gas traps heat in the atmosphere and causes global warming. ghg is a combination of noxious gases like carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4), as well as water vapor. ghg is produced from fossils fuels; the extraction, processing, and industrial carbon emissions from oil, gas and coal.
ghg is heating the Earth which is producing a hyper climate which is causing wildfires and floods, drought and sea level rise, hurricanes and heat waves.
numerous studies in recent years have linked bigger U.S. wildfires to global warming from the burning of coal, oil and gas, especially because climate change has made California much drier. A drier California means plants are more flammable.
"If we can't breathe it then we die, if we can't grow food on it then we die, if we can't drink it then we die."
Trump is a climate denier. WH propaganda dismisses climate science. Solar employs twice as many people as does coal.
Humpty Trumpty is openly doing the bidding of the oil, gas and coal industries while cities around the world are choked by air pollution, and our land and water are poisoned by industrial toxic waste. Drilling for oil in the Arctic is cray cray. Keystone XL pipeline spilled 383,000 gallons of oil - 31 Oct 2019.
methane is bad. This FLIR image shows the large amount of methane that is normally not seen with the naked eye. This is at a super emitter in Texas, and it is bad.FLIR image of methane at a super emitter in Texas
climate change is heating the land and the oceans which is causing bigger storms.

foul smell in the air
global levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) passed 400ppm, while 100ppm is considered an unhealthy amount of greenhouse gas (ghg).
oil, gas and coal
human activity, like burning coal and driving cars, produces ghg, which contributes to the greenhouse effect, which is the cause of the current global warming. These gases include carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane, nitrous oxides and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Climate chaos, like fires, storms, hurricanes, floods, and drought, is caused by high levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere and is already producing human suffering and will most likely lead to the end of our civilization as we know it.
the real problem is we burn dirty coal in outland power plants to produce electricity for the city. Burning carbon fuels produces large amounts of carbon dioxide, which causes climate change.
city smog the majority of the world's population now lives in cities. Is your city on the smog list?
we must stop the EPA's rollback of current federal environmental safeguards.
in order to meet the targets in the Paris Agreement and save the planet from climate devastation, we must halt coal, oil and gas development and finance a transition towards 100% renewable energy systems.
11 countries leading in renewable energy. Germany to close all 84 of its coal-fired power plants, will rely on renewable energy. Sweden is aiming to be a fossil fuel free nation. Costa Rica has achieved 95% renewable electricity.
