We are a coalition of clean energy and climate-focused individuals and groups who prioritize emissions reductions over partisanship.
Climate change is a crisis far more formidable and difficult to solve than even the Covid-19 pandemic. We are less than 5% likely to meet the Paris goals. We cannot allow our technology preferences or prejudices to derail us on our path to achieving significant emissions reductions. Therefore, we adamantly oppose any closure of existing sources of clean energy for as long as we continue to spew carbon emissions and methane from dirty energy sources. Unfortunately, otherwise rational people seem to support closing clean nuclear power plants—and five reactors at Indian Point, Dresden and Byron are being slated for closure in the next few months—all of which will be replaced with natural gas-burning plants, which increase emissions and is the exact wrong direction for us to go.
We support adding all types of new clean energy generation—nuclear included—and we are opposed to the closure of any source of clean energy before we have achieved zero net emissions. Accordingly, we work to educate the public, amplify the voices of climate activists and build better collaboration for building stronger, cleaner, more resilient and integrated grids that meet both society’s growing energy needs and our climate goals. We have a range of climate and clean energy campaigns working at any one time and welcome more. Thank you for joining us.
