To protect our world from collapse, we need a new approach:

Climate Mobilization

Emergency Speed 

There is no more time for multi-decade solutions. We need to reach zero emissions and drawdown in a decade or faster. This will take massive reductions in carbon emissions and concerted action on a scale we haven’t seen since the home front mobilization during World War II.

Truth-Based

We can't solve a problem we refuse to look at. Climate change is outpacing official predictions and accelerating due to feedback loops. Previous targets and timelines for climate action are based on bad data. If we don’t act now, Earth could become uninhabitable in a matter of decades.

Whole society 

A true solution to the climate emergency must account for all sources of greenhouse gases and ecological overshoot. This means an all-hands-on-deck transformation of our economy and society. In the process, we can build more resilient, compassionate, and just communities that work for everyone.

 Our National Climate Mobilization Vision:

A Victory Plan for the Earth

Faced with a catastrophically failing system, the only rational response is a system overhaul.

Decade transition

We must get to zero emissions as fast as possible—in ten years or less—using emergency economic planning measures.

Rebuild transport

An overhaul of our transport system: high speed electrified railroads, new public transit options, new forms of fuel replacement, and car-free cities.

Reduce demand

A fair shares rationing program for energy use (similar to those used during WWII), as well as vastly improved efficiency, will minimize energy use.

Transform agriculture

A move from industrial agriculture to localized, regenerative farming with limits on livestock production and a phase-out of factory farming.

Drawdown of GHGs

A huge effort to sequester ambient carbon and cool the earth back to safe levels. Including deploying various drawdown methods at scale.

Restore ecosystems

A half-earth conservation and ocean-protection program to halt the ongoing mass extinction of species and turn ecosystems into effective carbon sinks.

 

While we have never faced a threat of this scale, we have also never met a greater opportunity.

 

Mobilizing for Victory

Mobilization is an emergency restructuring of a modern industrial economy, accomplished at rapid speed. It involves the vast majority of citizens, the utilization of a very high proportion of available resources, and impacts all areas of society. It is nothing less than a government-coordinated social and industrial revolution.

Mobilization is what happens when an entire nation enters “emergency mode” and the results can be truly staggering.

The United States undertook this kind of mobilization during World War II. The government banned or restricted economic activities that did not contribute to the war effort and redirected resources toward victory. Women surged into factories and planted 50 million “Victory Gardens” that supplied 40% of America’s produce during the war. Scientists and universities pumped out research on behalf of the war effort. This historical precedent can help us re-imagine how quickly and effectively we could move today, if government and society acted with the same "failure is not an option" mentality.

A Just Transition

A just transition means not only preventing unimaginable suffering from climate and environmental catastrophe, but also reinventing our economy to address the social inequities on which the extractive economy has been based. We can phase out polluting industries that are harmful to human and non-human life, and create new pathways for equitable, sustainable livelihoods. We can reinvigorate local economies with new industries that protect the climate while providing dignified, productive work for all.
