Climate Reality + United Nations + You


This year, we're working with the United Nations to spur governments, industry, and civil groups to make new commitments on addressing climate change.

Why? Because with the U.N. climate negotiations kicking off next month, we're seeing real opportunities for progress. And this is just one reason we're optimistic. Here's a few more to share with and inspire your friends.


Coal mines into solar farms

In the United Kingdom, old coal mines are being transformed into solar farms. If that isn't incredible progress towards a clean-energy future, we're not sure what is.

Head to Facebook to check out the article we posted a few weeks ago about this very topic. Then, share this graphic with your friends.




A Historic Proposal

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a plan to cut carbon pollution levels from power plants for the first time in the nation's history. It's a big deal and it's got the entire climate movement buzzing.

Last week, hundreds testified at the EPA and shared personal stories of how carbon pollution is affecting their daily lives, including Olympic skier and Climate Ambassador Kaylin Richardson. Read her testimony here, and add your name to the thousands of others demanding a sustainable future.




Environment vs. Economy

Worldwide, children are among the most vulnerable to health risks from climate change. But people everywhere are standing up for the health of their children, their economy, and their environment. Retweet this graphic to #ActOnClimate and share the good news with the world.




Why? Why Not?

Why are we stuck with the policies that have failed our planet? Why not ask for the common sense changes that will prevent this crisis from getting worse? Our #WhyWhyNot campaign is asking key questions about climate change.




Social media is a great place to stay up to date on our day-to-day actions -- as well as what's going on with the movement for a safer climate.
