We helped win the single biggest action our country has ever taken on climate
Under the newly announced Clean Power Plan, gas and coal power plants will pollute 32 percent less and clean energy sources such as wind and solar will meet much more of the nation’s electricity needs. Environment America is proud of the role we’ve played to galvanize public support for this historic plan. With continued commitment from President Obama and state leaders, and strong backing from the American people, this will mark a giant shift toward the 100 percent clean energy reality that the climate crisis demands and future generations deserve.
The legislation being voted on today by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources committee, does little or nothing to spur renewable energy in this country. The proposal risks sensitive coastal ecosystems to pollution and spills from off-shore drilling, while worsening global warming by opening the door to high-carbon fuels such as liquid coal, tar sands and oil shale, according to Environment Colorado.
Today, 13 government science agencies issued the most definitive scientific assessment to date of the impacts of global warming on the United States and reinforced the urgency of acting now to reduce global warming pollution.
Kayakers took to the rapids at Confluence Park to join a coalition delivering a simple message to Congress— don’t miss the boat on passing landmark energy legislation that would fight global warming and protect Colorado’s water, wildlife and way of life.
