consumers powering a clean future
The international scientific community agrees we need to cut our greenhouse gas emissions by 80% or more to avoid the worst effects of climate change - and we need to do it soon. Waste reduction and energy efficiency are important actions, but on their own they can not achieve anything close to this level of emissions reduction.
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 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 the climate crisis 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.
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 emissions every year - FOREVER.
A typical household spends $4,000 per year on energy expenses for electricity, gasoline and natural gas. By taking these actions, 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.
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 clean ENVIRONMENT free from oil spills, methane leaks, toxic waste, acid rain etc.
Spread the word!
Many of us are able to act on this information right away, but for others, 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. That will ensure they are armed with the facts when it comes time for them to make these purchasing decisions.
