It was widely reported yesterday that the Trump Administration is poised to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. Today at 3pm, Donald Trump will hold a reality-TV type ceremony in the Rose Garden to announce his decision.
Climate Mobilization Director Margaret Klein Salamon issued the following statement:Read more
With its recent attacks, the Trump presidency is priming millions of Americans to enter climate emergency mode. The movement for a safe climate is only growing stronger.Read more
On Tuesday evening, San Diegans turned out en masse outside their city's federal building to resist President Donald Trump's policy of climate change denial, and to rally for a massive national mobilization to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions within a decade, revitalize the American economy with full employment, and restore a safe climate.
The event, organized by the San Diego chapter of The Climate Mobilization led by La Jolla couple Nancy and Derek Casady, was the latest in a groundswell of local demonstrations after Trump's election, reported the San Diego Union Tribune. Police estimated that about 500 people attended, while organizers estimated upwards of 1,000 — over 2,600 had RSVP'ed on the Facebook event page.Read more
In times of crisis, it's nice to savor a bit of fun news when you can. Which is why we're happy to introduce our new & improved t-shirts! Featuring The Climate Mobilization's logo in the same style as our old shirts, the new ones display the "Iwo Jima" windmill silhouette on the back, so people can see on both sides that you're down to protect civilization as part of the climate resistance.Read more
The Climate Mobilization and Climate Mobilization Project are true grassroots organizations, powered by dedicated volunteers and generous supporters.
We call for World War II-scale climate mobilization that eliminates net US emissions in less than 10 years, to protect civilization and the natural world. Our mission is the most ambitious and aggressive platform of any climate organization that I'm aware of. We tell the truth, even though it's hard. Where most climate organizations play defense, we play offense.
Trump’s election and the rise of repressive authoritarian movements across the world makes it all the more important that we continue with this mission. These movements are determined to crush the truth, which is our only hope for survival.Read more
Since Election Day, we at The Climate Mobilization have thought very hard about the implications that a Trump presidency will have on our strategy. We’ve come up with a tentative vision for a new way forward, and we want to hear your thoughts.Read more
We at The Climate Mobilization were not expecting a President Trump. His election shows us that this country is desperate for change, but is still deeply in denial about the truth of the climate emergency.
Our organizing plans for the upcoming year were centered around realizing the promises in the Democratic Party Platform of a first 100-days climate emergency summit and a WWII-scale climate mobilization. We are in the process of updating our strategy in light of the drastically altered political situation, and will be in touch very soon with draft strategies for going forward. Our general mandate to spread the truth of the climate crisis and organize power behind the demands for emergency mobilization will remain at the core of our movement.Read more
Since launching The Climate Mobilization, we have often been asked to explain specifically what a WWII-scale mobilization to restore a safe climate and save civilization would actually entail.
Understanding the need to answer this question in greater detail, we decided it was imperative that I withdraw from my role coordinating TCM organizing efforts earlier this year and do just that. I spent a great deal of time reading books by leading thinkers on solutions to the climate emergency and the ecological crisis. I also consulted with experts in a range of fields and attempted to outline a set of broad policies and approaches that, if delivered, would give us a fighting chance to save civilization and protect the natural world.
The result is draft one of The Climate Mobilization Victory Plan.
