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.
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.
