NextGen Climate Action

President-Elect Donald Trump isn’t taking climate change seriously. In fact, he thinks it’s a hoax orchestrated by the Chinese. No, really we have the receipts to prove it.

But, the majority of us believe in science and realize that climate change is happening.

The world is heating up in a bad way. According to substantial amounts of scientific evidence, Global Warming is the direct result of our dependence on fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas. Burning these fuels releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere which results in trapped gases and rising temperatures.

Humans cannot continue to ignore the fact that climate change is real and has a negative effect on our health and the environment. Our chances of survival is slim if we do not act now.

NextGen Climate Action works hard to alert the public about the dangers of climate change and how we all can transition to 100% clean energy.

"In fact, in the first quarter of 2016 in the U.S., more than 98% of NEW electricity generation capacity was renewable. Four American cities – Burlington, Aspen, Greensburg, and Kodiak Island – already are  powered by 100% renewable energy and several others, like San Diego, have pledged to reach 100% before 2035."
