COMBATING
CLIMATE CHANGE

THE PROBLEM

As fossil fuels continue to be depleted, their prices will continue to go up. Not only will this hurt working families and other individuals, it will hurt businesses’ ability to innovate and grow. Higher energy costs will slam the brakes on future economic growth.

Renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power are not only less expensive than fossil fuels, they will never run out. Additionally, according to a worldwide scientific consensus, if we don’t quickly and dramatically shift from carbon-based energy to clean energy sources over the next 15 years, we will start to see even more serious consequences of global warming and climate change.

Our children will experience a larger number of more powerful natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods. Florida and large sections of the Gulf Coast will be underwater. Crop failures will drive up the price of food, and we will experience famine and starvation on a scale never before seen. Overseas, hundreds of millions of climate refugees will flee to higher ground, creating global instability and increasing the amount and severity of armed conflicts around the world.

WHAT WE CAN DO

Combating climate change starts with informing the public on the urgency and harmful realities of our current situation if we fail to act so that we can make more informed choices on energy consumption, renewable alternatives, and how to cast our votes. Lobbyist and Corporations who profit from fossil fuels are pouring millions into misinformation campaigns and rigging votes in Washington. 

But we can fight back. We’re holding those accountable who fail to act, do more harm or even fail to acknowledge the issue at all. We’re pushing back the tide of fake news and misinformation on Climate Change backed by sourced material so we can continue an honest narrative on how much is currently at stake. We’re informing voters what their representatives are really voting for so on election day America can vote for a future that’s represented by leaders who are acting on the climate crises and passing legislation to ensure a safer future for generations to come.

CO2 LEVELS

CO2 PASSED 400 parts per million

Last year marked the first time in several million years that atmospheric concentrations of CO2 passed 400 parts per million. In the entire history of human civilization, CO2 levels have never been this high. [1]

DEATH TOLL

400,000 killed every year

Climate change kills 400,000 people every year. If we do nothing, by 2030 it could rise to more than 600,000 people every year due to hunger and communicable diseases that affect above all children in developing countries. [2]

COLLAPSE

2050 COLLAPSE OF HUMAN CIVILIZATION

According to a recent study by Breakthrough – National Centre for Climate Restoration, if we don’t take immediate action to end the climate crisis and decrease CO2 emissions across the planet, human civilization as we know it will collapse by 2050. [3]

RENEWABLES

Renewable Energy Will Be Cheaper

The cost of renewable energy is falling so fast that it should be a consistently cheaper source of electricity generation than traditional fossil fuels within just a few years, according to a report from the International Renewable Energy Agency. [4]
