Stand Up for a Future That Works for All Americans
(Not Just Big Polluters)
How do we energize the economy and put thousands more Americans to work? The answer is blowing in the wind.
Last summer, the EPA finalized the Clean Power Plan, a historic step to build a clean energy future and reduce carbon pollution from existing power plants in the US. As part of the Clean Power Plan, the Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP) encourages states to invest in technologies like solar, wind, and energy efficiency.
So, why does that matter? By making it easier for states to replace dirty fossil fuels, the program creates jobs in an already-booming clean energy sector, protects the health of our communities, saves Americans money, and helps save the planet.
Add your name now and let the EPA know you’re behind the CEIP.
It’s our chance as citizens to help accelerate the national shift to clean, renewable energy — and we’re not going to let it slip away.
Six Key Facts About the Clean Power Plan
We need to act on Climate change
We can solve climate change
The overwhelming majority of the world’s climate scientists agree: man-made climate change is a reality. Unless we act now, temperatures will rise beyond our control.
We have the means
We know how to stop climate change, and we have the tools to do it. We start by ditching the dirty fossil fuels devastating our climate and our health and switching to clean, reliable, and affordable renewable energies like wind and solar.
There are real dangers
We're looking at a future of seas climbing up our shores; devastating floods, droughts, and storms becoming more frequent facts of life; seasons changing beyond recognition; and dangerous consequences for our health we’re only beginning to understand.
It makes economic sense
Changing technology means renewables keep getting cheaper, more accessible, and more widespread everywhere from rooftops to power plants. Renewable energy costs the same or less than energy from fossil fuels. In 2014, numerous countries' economies grew while their carbon emissions levels dropped.
It's our duty
We have a moral responsibility to each other and to our children to address this crisis. This is our one beautiful and deeply precious home.
we're doing it together
We’re bringing together people from all walks of life and corners of the earth to support a strong climate agreement in Paris that puts us on the path to zero carbon emissions and the healthy and prosperous future we want. When the world speaks with one voice, our leaders have to listen.
