We need a real approach to climate change.

Climate change threatens the environment and the communities we love. Each year, human activity releases 51 billion tons of greenhouse gases.

There is now more CO2 in the atmosphere than in all of recorded history, causing our planet to warm faster than normal. We must reverse this trend to prevent serious harm to the environment and our communities.

Two-thirds of Americans believe we are not doing enough to address this problem. For too long, the climate conversation has been dominated by alarmism and inaction. We need a fundamentally new approach.

For far too many Americans, climate action feels confusing or out of reach. Let’s be clear, there is no single solution for climate change. What we need to do is recognize the problem and then prioritize solutions that will make the biggest impact.

We must understand which actions are easy to adopt, have high impact, and come with the lowest cost for communities here in the United States and around the world. Effective climate action will require the combined efforts of governments, business innovators, and most importantly – Americans like you. Together, we can build a more sustainable and prosperous future. Will you join us?

What you need to know about climate change


1. Climate change is real, and humans are having an impact.

We know that our current forms of energy production and transportation, as well as other human activities, release emissions into the atmosphere and warm the planet.

2. Climate change is a serious threat.

Increasing global temperatures will raise sea levels and increase extreme weather events, droughts, and flooding. These effects will hurt our economy, security, and health, as well as the ecosystems we cherish.

3. We must act now.

The United States has made significant progress reducing emissions and must continue to lead the world in addressing climate change. However, there is no time to waste if we hope to avoid the most severe effects of climate change. We have a responsibility to ourselves, and to future generations, to build a more sustainable and prosperous future.

4. There is no single solution.

Every decision in life involves trade-offs. We must take significant steps to reduce global emissions, but we cannot sacrifice the economic well-being of Americans. This will require an all-hands-on-deck approach combining the efforts of individuals, innovators, communities, and governments. We will only beat climate change if our actions are coordinated, ambitious, and smart.

5. We are hopeful.

Human ingenuity has solved some of the world’s hardest problems, from lifting billions of people out of poverty to creating modern medicine. Climate change is a serious challenge, but innovation and technology are already paving the way for a cleaner future. In the last century, American innovation put a man on the moon and the Internet in the palms of our hands. This century, we will solve climate change.
