Campaigns & Events

Current Campaigns:

 

To Local, National and International Leaders: We - parents, grandparents and families worldwide - demand actions that are strong enough to protect the children we love from catastrophic climate change. We want actions now to stabilize global temperatures, and a world powered by 100% clean, renewable energy.

 

 

 

How and why we must move beyond extreme energy and all fossil fuels - and leap immediately to renewables. Learn more about the Federal Regulatory Review Agency (FERC), a powerful, yet little known federal agency. FERC is charged with approving gas infrastructure projects such as pipelines, compressor stations and Liquified Natural Gas Plants. In fact, they have over a 90% project approval record! Communities around the country are now questioning what due process exists through FERC and bringing to light many of the problems that they are encountering as a result of these FERC approvals. 

Coalition to Stop the Pilgrim Pipeline. Grassroots communities across New York and New Jersey united to stop 2 oil pipelines from traversing their states.

Check out the 350 Divestment Campaign, whether you are currently a student, an alumni, or never went to college - find out how to go "fossil free."

"Full Stop" on Fracking  

Educate yourself about the 21st Century "Clean (use this word lightly) Energy Gold Rush," better known as "fracked natural gas," and find out that this is in fact anything but Clean, Natural or a Gold mine. Fracking is a dangerous, loosely regulated method of natural gas extraction that involves pumping a toxic sludge made up of hundreds of chemicals, many of which are "proprietary" and not disclosed, thousands of feet underground to break up rock that is trapping natural gas. This gas is then released and these dangerous chemicals come back to the surface for disposal. This process contaminates our drinking water, our land and the air that we breath.

Welcome to Climate Mama

welcome

You are a mother, a father, a grandparent, an uncle, an aunt, a teacher or a child at heart. When you hear the Native American saying, “We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children”, it makes you stop for a moment and think. You love nature, travel, adventure and believing in a world that is special and unique. Climate change and global warming are words that alarm you, that often seem too big to get your arms around. You care about what’s happening to the world and notice small changes in your own life that seem to point in the direction of a threatened environment. But you wonder if these changes are real, and if they are you can’t imagine what you can do to help change what is happening.

The Climate Reality Project employs cutting-edge communications and grassroots engagement tools to break the dam of inaction and raise the profile of the climate crisis to its proper state of urgency. With a Global movement of more than 5 million strong and a grassroots network of more than 6000 Climate Leaders trained by Al Gore, the Climate Reality Movement stands up to denial, presses for solutions and spreads the truth about climate change to empower leaders to solve the climate crisis. Climate Reality is leading the way and helping us find and hold onto Climate Hope!

May 24th, 2016 was the 10th Anniversary of the release of the film, An Inconvenient Truth. The film was the impetus for the creation of The Climate Reality Project and an awakening to so many about the depth and breadth of the climate crisis - including our Climate Mama. Do you remember the first time you watched that film? Watch it again or watch it for the first time. Share it with the kids in your life.
