Green America and our members pressure major corporate polluters to take the climate crisis seriously. We also help people and businesses reduce their carbon footprints and encourage clean, renewable energy.
The Climate Change Problem
Greenhouse gas emissions come from the burning of fossil fuels for energy and transportation, using fossil fuels in agriculture, and the destruction of forests, soil, and other places that sequester carbon.
If we don’t take widespread, systemic action to reduce carbon emissions, the impacts of climate change will be severe – droughts in some parts of the world and flooding in others. Rising sea levels will threaten our major cities worldwide. Communities and ecosystems are already facing the devastating effects of this crisis, and black and brown communities are disproportionately affected.
The climate crisis is an enormous threat to people and the planet, but it is also presents an opportunity to create a truly green economy that works for all.
