Stop Global Warming

No New Dirty Power Plants

Already, we’re experiencing the devastating impacts of extreme weather.  In November, Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation in the Philippines, which may have claimed up to 10,000 lives, is just the latest horrific example of what climate change looks like. Scientists warn that things will get worse for future generations and for us if we fail to act.

To protect our future from even more extreme weather events like these, we must dramatically reduce the carbon pollution fueling global warming – in America, that means cleaning up our power plants, the largest single source of carbon pollution and shifting to clean energy like wind, solar, and energy efficiency.

President Obama has a climate action plan to limit the carbon pollution coming from power plants. Power companies, the coal industry and their allies in Congress are running climate denial campaigns and trying to block President Obama from cleaning up dangerous carbon pollution.

By rallying millions of American citizens, along with local elected officials and other powerful voices to back the president’s plan – we can clean up the largest source of carbon pollution – power plants and take a major step towards a solving for global warming.
