All Hands On Deck
We are a grassroots movement, powered by dedication and courage.
We Demand a Government-led Mobilization to Restore a Safe Climate
We call for a government-coordinated mobilization of our economy and society to end US net emissions by 2025.
The hour is far too late for a gradual, multi-decade transition off of fossil fuels. We need to transition off fossil fuels and carbon intensive agriculture NOW and start removing excess C02 from the atmosphere.
The WWII homefront mobilization provides an excellent example of how the United States can achieve incredible things when we pursue an essential national mission.
We Call for Full Employment and Fair, Shared Sacrifice
The Climate Crisis demands an all-hands-on-deck response—all sectors, individuals, and institutions doing their part. This was accomplished during the WWII homefront mobilization—soldiers risked their lives, industry shifted to produce armaments rather than consumer goods, and universities worked with the government to produce cutting edge research across fields.
To protect vulnerable workers we call for a job guarantee—that anyone who wants to serve their country and global community by participating directly in the climate mobilization will have that opportunity.
Further, mobilization calls on individuals to sacrifice as well. As in WWII we believe that sacrifice should be shared equitably. During WWII for example, gas, tires, meat, sugar, stockings and razorblades were rationed.
We Demand a Rapid Transformation of Our Energy & Agricultural Systems
We call for a ban on new investment in the fossil fuel infrastructure and a scheduled early retirement of existing fossil fuel infrastructure and facilities. We call for the closing of all US fossil fuel production and consumption by 2025, and globally by 2030.
In order to meet America's energy needs, and to help the world meet theirs, we call for a massive scale-up of renewable energy production. The government will partner with existing businesses to scale up production and also will also partner with universities and private companies to continue research into improving renewable energy.
Agricultural production needs to be intensely localized-- emphasizing growing food at home and at community gardens. Permaculture practices must be utilized on large and small farms. As in World War II, we believe meat and fish consumption should be limited.
We Call on Politicians to Pledge to Mobilize
We are inviting all of our elected representatives and candidates to Pledge to Mobilize, and we are building power in our communities in order to pressure them to do so. Vice Magazine called the Pledge to Mobilize, “likely the most ambitious pledge to fight climate change put forward this election cycle”.
A group of courageous elected leaders and candidates have already signed the Pledge to Mobilize.
