Coal is NOT CLEAN ENERGY

coal is not clean energy league of conservation voters

Target: Donald Trump and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus
Goal: Dump the “coal is clean energy” platform and support real clean energy like wind and solar.

The Republican Party’s 2016 Platform is bursting with egregious attacks on the environment and environmental programs, but one of the most dangerous lines in the entire party platform calls coal “clean energy.”

After years of innovation, clean energy like wind and solar are on pace to replace coal while providing a boom to the economy and helping to reduce dangerous carbon pollution that fuels climate change.

Donald Trump might dig coal, but a clean energy America doesn’t. Sign the petition telling the Republican Party to dump “coal is clean energy” from the GOP platform and support real clean energy like wind and solar.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Donald Trump and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus,

Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. Leaders from around the globe have realized the impending threat of rising seas, hotter temperatures, and higher atmospheric carbon emissions—and they’re doing something about it!

The Republican Party cannot fall behind on the science and policies of a 21st century environment. I am writing this letter to ask you to drop the claim that coal is “clean energy,” a proven carbon pollutant and significant contributor to the global climate crisis, and instead invest in real clean energy that already has proven economic benefits, like wind and solar energy. If we want a safe and better future for our nation, we need to start acting now.

Sincerely,
[Your Name Here]

  1. clean energy for the future.

  2. We are dealing with COAL ASH in North Carolina right now and there is NOTHING clean about it. It destroys the earth and peoples lives. It is dirty, any way you look at it.

  3. michael guest says:

    Politics are dumb and stupid! Coal and pollution have nothing to do with clean energy. That puts our communities, the environment and health in danger. They need to stay in the ground where they should be.

  4. Australia going back to coal, Japan is bldg 142 coal type generators,China, India say economics first,Germany is bldg 3 more etc. I see chemtrails containing heavy metals & other toxins everyday for yrs & yrs, killing us slowly on the planet.I moved to country and all they do is spray, I’ve always been organic.
    Factory farms abuse & pollute. The elite of this world buy up and patent that gives us REAL clean efficient energy that moves more effectively but they want economic collapse of North America starting w banks 1913 and now manufacturing industry moving to 3rd world, then we will turn into 3 world nation ourselves w/o manufacturing. We could have clean coal, we have scubbers but we are fighting something bigger.
    Why do you think BRICS was formed?

  5. Behind ALL of this is BIG BUSINESS, simply put we are all on borrowed time as it is – the planet is like a very heavy smoker with a chronic bad cough – its on the slide to oblivion! The present situation is not sustainable and the greedy businessmen fail to understand that their lives hang in the balance too, unless they plan to ‘go off planet’! I’d happily launch them into outer space any day!!!
