Tell Congress: We Need a 100% Clean Energy Economy

The American people have made it clear that they want to see swift and strong action on climate change. It's time for Congress and the rest of the federal government to deliver.

A newly introduced bill in Congress would set the United States' economy on a path to 100% clean energy by 2050. Ask your member of Congress to cosponsor the 100% Clean Economy Act of 2019. Not sure if your representative is a cosponsor already? Check the list of current cosponsors for their name.

Dear your U.S. representative,

I am writing to ask you to cosponsor the 100% Clean Economy Act of 2019. Introduced by Representatives Donald McEachin (VA), Deb Haaland (NM), Debbie Dingell (MI), Earl Blumenauer (OR), Paul Tonko (NY), and Chellie Pingree (ME), this bill sets the science-based target of transitioning the American economy to 100% clean energy by 2050 and provides a broad framework on how the United States can get there.

Over the last few years, we have witnessed the impacts of climate change growing increasingly severe. In the US, we have seen deadly storms, extreme droughts, record heat waves, and catastrophic flooding. These extreme events take lives, force communities to relocate, destroy crops, and threaten national security. In 2017 alone, extreme weather disasters cost the United States over $300 billion. The impacts on our economy and security are only projected to worsen over time if we fail to act now.

Scientists agree that we must reduce global greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by mid-century to have a chance at limiting global warming to 1.5C and avoiding even worse impacts of climate change. To achieve this ambitious goal, we need to immediately begin transforming our economy. But it isn't just the science that is compelling—clean energy has been one of the fastest growing sectors in the American economy, and by going all in on this energy transition, we will create new jobs, new industries, and a cleaner, healthier environment for all Americans.

Please cosponsor the 100% Clean Economy Act of 2019, and help protect American families and communities while building a new, clean energy economy for the 21st century.
