Urge your governor to stand up for clean energy

Donald Trump has begun his effort to dismantle the Clean Power Plan. But states can fight back: Urge your governor to fight for clean energy at the state level.

Call your governor at 202-558-4027.

Urge your governor to fight for clean energy by joining the Under2 Coalition.

The Under2 Coalition is a group of governments around the world who are working to meet the emissions reduction goals outlined in the Paris Climate Agreement. By joining the coalition, your state can help achieve similar outcomes as the Clean Power Plan.

Sample script 1: for all states EXCEPT CA, CT, MA, MN, NH, NY, OR, RI, VT, and WA.

  • Hello, my name is [Name] and I live in [City]. My zip code is [####].
  • Donald Trump and Scott Pruitt’s move to dismantle the Clean Power Plan will put our health and economy at risk and make us less secure.
  • Clean energy reduces carbon pollution and helps ensure clean air for our kids and future generations. And it creates more U.S. jobs than fossil fuels.
  • That’s why I urge you to join other states like Connecticut and New Hampshire that have pledged to honor America’s commitment to the Paris Agreement by signing the Under2 MoU.

Sample script 2: for CT, MA, MN, NH, NY, OR, RI, VT, and WA (these states have already signed the Under 2 MoU). Live in California? Click here.

  • Hello, my name is [Name] and I live in [City]. My zip code is [####].
  • Donald Trump and Scott Pruitt’s move to dismantle the Clean Power Plan will put our health and economy at risk and make us less secure.
  • Clean energy reduces carbon pollution and helps ensure clean air for our kids and future generations. And it creates more U.S. jobs than fossil fuels.
  • I urge you to protect our health and create good, well-paying jobs by committing our state to 100 percent clean energy.

Donald Trump will sign an executive order to gut the Clean Power Plan.

If fully implemented, the Clean Power Plan would have substantial public health and economic benefits, including:

  • Preventing 90,000 asthma attacks each year;
  • Saving 3,600 lives and preventing 1,700 heart attacks each year;
  • Reaping up to $34 billion in health benefits from reduced exposure to fine particulates and ozone pollution;
  • Saving Americans $155 billion on their energy bills.

Accelerating the transition to clean energy will also create up to two million jobs by 2050.

But your state can fight back. Urge your governor to stand up for clean energy. Call your governor at 202-558-4027 (see sample script above)
