Environmental Justice, reflection at Cliff's edge

The survival of our species requires action on climate.  It is a moral imperative.  And owing to the magnitude of the problem and the scope of solutions required, climate justice brings with it the opportunity to connect the dots in building a more just, sustainable world.  In point of fact, this will happen regardless.  The question is whether or not the choices of humanity will allow humanity to be a part of that more just, more sustainable world that is in the future.  If you want to join me in this, take the pledge to mobilize:  http://pledgetomobilize.org/cockerham

  • Endorse CCBI

    Climate stabilization under the international consensus 3.6° Farenheit threshold agreed to in the Copenhagen Accord is the ultimate and necessary goal.

    Warming of 3.6°F above pre-industrial levels is widely considered the heat limit to avert the most dangerous effects of runaway climate change and the risk of irreversible tipping points. Our pathway puts us on a course to more than double the internationally agreed limit.

    The US must adopt policies to capture the price of GHGs, accelerate and expand investment in clean energy, and transform our infrastructure. These complimentary measures are needed to help reduce GHG emissions and quickly drive investment away from carbon-intensive practices, towards a clean and efficient energy future.

    By endorsing, you support CCBI’s call for:

    • Pricing carbon pollution
    • Reducing emissions several percent per year
    • Investing in the conversion to a clean, efficient and resilient infrastructure
    • US leadership

    Speak Out and Lend Your Voice to Urgent Action at Scale

    We are calling on you to personally endorse CCBI's call for policy action, and help engage those in your network to also endorse this call to action. Your support is crucial for the success of a broad-scale climate stabilization campaign.
