Climate Parents is a powerful movement of families advocating for bold solutions to climate change. We work at a national and regional level to fight dirty energy and scale up renewables, enact policies that help protect kids and communities from climate impacts, and ensure our kids learn climate science and solutions in school. We are fighting for a “kid safe and climate safe” energy system free from the carbon pollution fueling climate change and jeopardizing our kids' health.
A moratorium has been placed on injecting new gas into the dangerous Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility until a comprehensive safety review is completed. But since the Aliso Canyon facility provides energy for 11 million LA region customers, concerns have been raised about natural gas and electricity reliability. The solution? Replace methane-spewing, climate change-fueling natural gas from the dangerous Aliso storage facility with clean, renewable solar. Sign the petition below to tell the Aliso Canyon joint task force to implement the solar solutions plan!
Most students in the U.S. are either learning very little about climate change at school. Worse, about a half of students are not taught the truth about human causes of climate change, in part because of the impact of climate deniers on our public discourse. Governors have the power to sway decisions on education policy, but to date the National Governors Association has been silent on NGSS. Please sign the petition to tell the National Governors Association to pass a resolution in support of Next Generation Science Standards and climate change educationfor all U.S. students.
The Supreme Court ruling to freeze Clean Power Plan implementation could slow the adoption of clean energy plans in states across the nation when there is no time to lose. Climate change is not taking a timeout while the courts ponder. The Arctic won’t stop melting, the oceans will not stop rising, storms will not become less intense, asthma rates won’t come down, and record temperatures won’t cool while lawyers tangle. Despite the Supreme Court decision, states can -- and must -- continue planning for a rapid transition to clean power and energy efficiency. Sign the letter to tell Governors to accelerate, not delay, clean power plans to combat climate change.
An Exxon senior scientist told Exxon management in 1977 that burning fossil fuels would warm the planet and threaten humanity with “potentially catastrophic” impacts. Over the next decade, Exxon scientists performed cutting-edge climate research, and provided extensive briefings to company leaders on the link between burning fossil fuels and global warming. However, externally, Exxon executives subsequently funded a network of groups to deny the science, mislead the public and block climate policy solutions. Exxon knowingly jeopardized the health and safety of our kids and grandkids and the stability of our planet to protect its own profits. Sign the petition asking Attorney General Loretta Lynch to launch a federal investigation of Exxon for putting the health and safety of our kids and communities at risk.
