Sign the Pledge:

I pledge to do what I can to support the 1Sky Solutions:

  • Create 5 million green jobs and pathways out of poverty by rebuilding and refueling America with a comprehensive energy efficiency mobilization and immediate investments in a clean-energy infrastructure.
  • Reduce global warming pollution at least 35% below current levels by 2020, and at least 80% by 2050, in line with the best science available. Recycle revenues from the sale of pollution allowances or carbon taxes to ensure they are equitably returned to the public to offset potential increases in energy costs, accelerate the transition to a clean energy future in the U.S. and internationally, and fund adaptation for vulnerable communities and natural systems here and abroad.
  • Re-power America by imposing a moratorium on new coal plants that emit global warming pollution and replacing dirty fuels with 100% renewable energy.
