What are the most effective weapons in the fight against the climate crisis? New energy sources? New technology? Political action? One of the most powerful tools we have is the language we use to talk about the issue.
In this video, Bill McKibben describes the ways in which both the public and the media can change the way that they talk about the climate crisis to ensure that all Americans understand what is going on, what is at stake, and what we can do to address it.
The future or our planet depends on us taking action against climate change. The United States of America needs to take a closer look at the economic policies that encourage and allow companies to contribute to climate change and global warming.
In this video, Bill McKibben addresses some of the ways that we can hold corporations accountable and stop actions that negatively affect the environment: we must get money out of politics, encourage taxes that reflect the true cost of pollution, incentivize the right types of activities, and get the penalties right when companies harm the environment.
One of the largest myths about addressing climate change is that transitioning to renewable energy from fossil fuels (especially coal) will create a net loss of American jobs.
This video outlines some of the key reasons that we should support and encourage renewable energy jobs around this country.
The United States is the wealthiest nation in the history of the world and we have been a leader in so many ways across different generations. However, when it comes to climate science and renewable energy we are falling behind other countries who have taken the leadership and initiative to move towards 100% renewable energy.
This video outlines some of the ways that other countries around the world are moving towards renewable energy - the types of renewable energy production, as well as the strategies for how to get there.
