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.
Great news! President Obama has rejected the Keystone XL pipeline for good. This victory is a testament to the growing power of our movement to confront climate change for the sake of our kids and grandkids. This victory show that when millions of us join together to demand actions strong enough to protect the planet for our kids, anything is possible. Sign the thank you letter to President Obama for taking a stand to protect our kids, and our climate.
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.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is aligning himself with coal companies to lead the charge against the Clean Power Plan. He recently took an unprecedented step by writing a letter to all 50 governors, telling them they should refuse to develop state plans to reduce climate pollution. Fortunately, governors across the US who embrace the need to act on climate have already publicly rebuked Senator McConnell in strong terms. Please sign the letter asking governors to join their colleagues in publicly rejecting Senator McConnell's efforts to derail the Clean Power Plan, and to develop a plan for rapid expansion of energy efficiency and renewable energy.
