REPLACE

Clean renewable energy is the future. But the transition to a world entirely powered by clean energy must happen quickly to prevent catastrophic climate change. As consumers, we have tremendous collective power to accelerate this change by shifting our energy dollars away from fossil fuels based energy systems and toward clean renewable energy for ALL our energy consuming products.

It’s time for a new “R”

Waste reduction and energy efficiency are important actions that help us to avoid carbon emissions, but it’s time to add a critical new strategy - ELIMINATE SOURCES of emissions in our lives and REPLACE them with clean energy solutions. These solutions are affordable and available today.

Scientists agree

The international scientific community agrees we need to cut our greenhouse gas emissions by 80% to avoid the worst effects of climate change - and we need to do it soon.

US Emissions-01.png

The sources are clear

Nearly all of our emissions in this country and all industrialized nations come from burning fossil fuels for Electricity, Transportation and Heat. All other sources of greenhouse gas emissions pale in comparison.

STOP-01.png

Stop the burning

The only way to effectively address climate change is to STOP burning dirty coal, petroleum and natural gas for these essential energy needs. It simply will not be possible to avoid continued global warming without taking this important step.

The good news

For the first time in history, we now have clean and affordable alternatives to fossil fuels, and they are available TODAY. These solutions enable us to ELIMINATE SOURCES of emissions and they do not require a change to our lifestyles. You can do this in your life with 3 actions.

Green Energy-01.png

1. Electricity

Nearly 1/3rd of our emissions come from burning dirty coal and natural gas for electricity.

But now, wind and solar are the cheapest forms of energy generation and they produce ZERO emissions. A clean grid will be the foundation for most of our future energy needs.

For only pennies of additional cost per day you can REPLACE your dirty electricity with clean renewable energy and help transition the world to a clean energy future.

2. Transportation

Another 28% of our emissions come from burning petroleum for transportation - primarily from the cars and trucks we drive.

Electric Vehicles powered with renewable electricity create ZERO emissions.

You can help transition the world to clean electric transportation and save thousands of dollars in operating costs per year when you REPLACE your gas powered car with a clean Electric Vehicle.

3. Heat

Burning dirty natural gas for heat accounts for nearly another 1/3rd of our total emissions.

New heat pump technology makes heating our homes and our water with electricity 3-5 times more efficient than heating with natural gas. When an electric heat pump is powered with renewable energy it creates ZERO emissions.

You can REPLACE your dirty natural gas powered furnace and water heater with a heat pump, enjoy clean heat and save hundreds of dollars per year in utility bills.

Enormous Impact

Its easy to underestimate the impact of these simple actions, but because they ELIMINATE SOURCES of emissions, the cumulative effect is enormous. By taking these measures, a typical REPLACE household will avoid 14 Tons of CO2 every year - FOREVER.

Save money

A typical household spends $4,000 per year on energy expenses for electricity, gasoline and natural gas. A REPLACE household would save over $1,000 per year in expenses and reduce their energy emissions to ZERO. And, the remaining $3,000 per year they spend on energy would help finance the renewable energy systems we need for a clean future.

Outcomes 2-01.png

A clean future

Many of the problems in the world that we accept as “normal” are the result of burning fossil fuels. By adopting a REPLACE strategy you will be helping to ensure clean AIR that is free from fossil fuels pollution, more available clean WATER, better paying and safer JOBS, reduced HEALTH expenses and a cleaner ENVIRONMENT free from oil spills, methane leaks, toxic waste, acid rain etc.

Urgent Action

Its time for a new “R” and its urgent that we act now. The sooner you REPLACE, the more your actions will help to reduce the accumulation of greenhouse gasses warming the planet and the sooner we can achieve a clean future.

SPREAD THE WORD

You may be able to act on this information right away which is ideal, but for many the purchase of a new car or furnace or water heater may be months or even years away. The MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do with this information is to share it with the people you know - your friends and family who are concerned about this problem too, so that they are armed with the facts when it comes time for them to make these purchasing decisions.
