We’ve got one planet, y’all. There is no “Earth 2”. Let’s start acting like it.
The science is conclusive: climate damage is real and we’re actively destroying our one planet. Scientists are already on record stating 2022 will be one of the 10 hottest years in recorded human history. Yet we continue to burn fossil fuels at an unsustainable rate, we’ve turned the EPA into a rubber stamp for corporate polluters, and we’ve allowed Germany and China to take the lead on green energy, putting our economy at a disadvantage both at home and abroad.
Georgia Can’t Wait Solution
Georgia must be a national leader and pass legislation that fully embraces green energy, which includes clean manufacturing and smart power grids. We should use federal funding to train a new green energy workforce, and transition diesel school buses so that they are zero emission within the next ten years. For starters.
On the enforcement side, we must hold corporate polluters accountable for harming our land, lakes, streams, wildlife, and communities. This means working with the EPA to identify potential pollution before it happens, and it means holding big business to all those too-good-to-be-true promises they make at their lavish ribbon cuttings. We’ve been conned for too long. No more.
