As Annie says in the film, we can’t solve the climate crisis with the mindset that got us into it. We need something new—climate solutions that will really work! Click around, learn more, take action.

Demand Strong Action on Capitol Hill…or in your own Capitol
The Devil’s in the Details of the Most Important Bill of Our Time: Fight Global Warming supported by Center for Biological Diversity
The Center is advocating for U.S. climate legislation that sets an overall cap on atmospheric carbon dioxide levels consistent with the best available science of no more than 350 ppm, which would require reducing emissions by 45 percent or more below 1990 levels; that works with, rather than replaces, the Clean Air Act in favor of a deeply flawed cap and trade system; and that eliminates or greatly reduces offsets and other loopholes. But they need your help to make this happen. Take Action Now!
Protect the Climate through Recycling supported by GAIA
Recycling is one of the cheapest, quickest and easiest ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in developed and developing nations alike. Reducing emissions through recycling is 30% cheaper than through energy efficiency and 90% cheaper than through wind power. The potential of recycling, composting, biogas, and other waste prevention techniques to reduce emissions is enormous. Please sign a letter to be delivered to climate negotiators in Copenhagen. The new climate treaty must support efforts to increase recycling through the informal sector, instead of funding incinerators and landfills.
CLEAN ENERGY ECONOMY
Invest in the future, not the past
End Fossil Fuel Subsidies supported by Oil Change International

Green Jobs Now! supported by Green For All
Critical climate and clean-energy legislation is on the line in the U.S. Senate. With this legislation comes the opportunity for America to tackle climate change and usher in a new era of jobs, health, and wealth for all. But powerful forces are mobilizing to weaken or sink the legislation. That’s why our Senators need to hear from us. Let’s tell them we stand for good American jobs, clean skies, expanded opportunity, and a brighter future for all.
Stand with impacted communities around the world
Coal River Mountain Watch supported by Coal River Wind, RAN, 350.org, CREDO
The people of Coal River Valley need your help. Dynamiting Coal River Mountain could destabilize the largest coal slurry in the country, unleashing eight billion gallons of toxic sludge on homes, jobs and schools. We can no longer allow the fossil fuel industry to continue building more pipelines, belching out more pollution, and destroying more mountains as we envision a clean energy future. The Obama Administration can and will intervene if we decide that Coal River Mountain is where we draw the line in the sand.
Stop the Arctic Giveaway to Big Oil supported by Pacific Environment
On his way out of Washington, former President Bush proposed a plan that would not only give away virtually the entire Arctic Ocean to Big Oil—threatening traditional Alaska Native communities and Arctic wildlife—but would also commit the U.S. to continuing to be a lead cause of global climate change. We have an opportunity to stop these plans. Please urge the Obama Administration to stop Arctic oil and gas projects and keep its commitment to reversing climate change, protecting important ecological areas, and respecting the rights of indigenous cultures.
Chevron Toxico supported by The Campaign for Justice in Ecuador
Over three decades of oil drilling in the Ecuadorian Amazon, Chevron dumped more than 18 billion gallons of toxic wastewater into the rainforest, leaving local people suffering a wave of cancers, miscarriages and birth defects. Now, with the support of an international campaign for justice, the communities affected by Chevron’s negligence are holding one of the world’s largest oil companies to account.
