Global warming solutions

A livable climate and a healthy future are possible if we work together to eliminate the pollution and practices warming our planet.

To avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change, from more powerful hurricanes to increased flooding and worsening wildfires, we need to work together to eliminate the pollution and practices warming our planet. That means taking collective action to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, transitioning to an electric vehicle future, and powering our lives with clean, renewable energy. And we can all do more to use less energy, and use it more efficiently. Fortunately, global warming solutions are all around us — we just need to use them.
