PennEnvironment is excited to start doing some work focused on climate action because we still need to make great strides to mitigate effects of climate change. On one hand, we made huge progress in recent years with measures like the Clean Car Standards, so we have to defend those programs from political attacks at the federal level. At the same time, we can’t just wait around as climate change continues to get worse, so we are working to move Pennsylvania to 100% renewable energy with the introduction of a bill in the state legislature that will do just that.
We need to do all that we can to protect the progress that we’ve already made, but we cannot just play defense at the federal level. We have the technology at our fingertips to shift away from our dirty energy system, and move to one that gets pollution-free energy from the sun, wind, tides, and heat of the earth. This is both good for our planet, and good for our pocketbooks.
To bring this critical issue that, we’ll be getting media attention, building coalitions, building grassroots support, and hosting community events! There are tons of ways for volunteers to get involved, so if you want to take action on climate, please get in touch! No skills required other than passion for the environment.
