Sanity saving measures

[This post has been updated to reflect the urgency of action on climate.]


We have a moral obligation to protect our children from climate change by swiftly transitioning form fossil fuels to locally generated renewable energy. Here are some of the organizations that are working to make the needed change.

Environmental Voter Project – contribute to this non-partisan effort to get voters who consider the environment to be their 1st or 2nd priority to vote.  Turns out they don’t. – grassroots organizers for climate action.
NRDC – Natural Resources Defense Council, Earthjustice – lawyers for Earth, Center for Biological Diversity (species + habitat preservation), Green Energy Consumers Alliance – group buy-in for an electric car program + other clean energy solutions, Mothers Out Front – my work – moms for a livable climate, NPCA National Parks Conservation Association – the parks are already facing a long list of necessary but unfunded repairs and it’s about to get worse, The Nature Conservancy – restores/preserves ecologically valuable places worldwide.
If anyone in government or the utility sector tells you it’s impossible to have clean electricity at competitive rates, they don’t know about Green Mountain Power, a utility in Vermont which is providing its customers with excellent service, at competitive rates, and as of this writing, their electricity mix is 90% carbon-free.
There are also many, many other people and organizations that are buildling the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. Find them and amplify their voice by adding yours.
