Why Power Up for Climate Solutions?

We are at the beginning of a global climate emergency that threatens our safety and our future. Transformative action, taken immediately, can potentially slow climate change and protect a climate stable enough to be compatible with human civilization. But we are out of time. So how do we act quickly and boldly enough to provide our kids with a chance for a habitable and desirable world?

We have nearly everything we need to get started. First, the majority of us understand the basics of climate change: at least two-thirds of Americans now understand that climate change is happening and threatens our health, safety, and future. The majority of us also support regulating greenhouse gas emissions, government spending on renewable energy, pricing carbon emissions, and other high impact climate solutions.

Second, we know what to do: A remarkable scientific and policy consensus has emerged on the steps we need to take to begin restoring climate stability. The top-priority steps—dramatically increasing energy efficiency, dramatically increasing renewable energy, rapidly electrifying everything, and pursuing negative emissions (pulling carbon dioxide from the atmosphere with steps like growing trees and sequestering carbon in soils)—are clear (learn more here). There is also an emerging consensus on the most effective policies to get us there.

So what is still missing? The missing ingredient is participation. Many more of us need to engage in the simple activities that allow swift societal transformation: vote, talk to others, join community climate actions, ask elected officials to enact bold climate policies, and more.

Power Up for Climate Solutions is here to help you take action. We do this by selecting and providing easy, effective, and diverse actions delivered to your inbox. We  educate you about the key facts, choices, and opportunities so you can contribute to preserving a world where life can thrive for generations to come.

We’re here to inspire you to contribute to a bigger, more inclusive, more engaged and effective climate movement and harness our collective energy to tackle climate change. You don’s need to be an expert or devote your life to climate action to help. Just Sign up today to get started!

OUR STORY

Since 2013, I’ve been a climate solutions advocate. Solving climate change is something I am passionate about, something I think about every day. I sometimes collaborate with a small group of people who are similarly climate-obsessed, but we know that most people’s primary focus lies elsewhere. For years, I’ve heard from friends and acquaintances that they too are worried about climate change and would like to do something but feel overwhelmed, guilty, they don’t know enough, or don’t know where to start. They–and you–are the reason Power Up for Climate Solutions was created!

We believe that every person who cares about climate change (the majority of us) would like to find simple, effective ways to support climate solutions. We also believe that climate solutions cannot be enacted at the speed and scale needed to prevent catastrophic climate change that threatens human health, wellbeing, and all we depend on, unless many more of us find ways to engage very soon. Power Up for Climate Solutions was created to connect people who want to do more with the information, resources, and tools you need to contribute to solving the climate crisis. We are here for everyone, but especially for those who are not climate experts and are looking for simple, impactful actions and accurate, accessible information on climate change and climate solutions.
