We want to help equip you with the information you need for your meetings with lawmakers, at events or even for one-on-one conversations with peers. On this page, you can download fact sheets and other shareable materials that contain information on Defend Our Future, our goal of transitioning the entire economy to 100% clean energy, and President Trump’s reckless rollbacks of our bedrock environmental and public health protections.
Defend Our Future
100% Clean Economy
Climate change threatens our health, our economy, and most definitely our future. Almost everything we love is on the line — from simple pleasures like coffee and beer to the ability to take a deep breath of fresh air or live in a coastal city, and far more dire stakes for frontline communities that will be hit the hardest.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. A 100 percent clean energy economy – that is, an economy where we produce no more pollution than we can remove — by 2050 is within reach if our policymakers in Washington make it a priority.
The United States can address the threat of climate change by moving to a 100% clean economy, creating jobs and reasserting American leadership in the process. A 100% clean America will protect our economy, our health, and future generations.
