Taking Action Now: The Consequence Campaign
This week young people across America launched the Consequence Campaign. They are demanding urgent Congressional action on a clean energy and climate plan that will create millions of new clean energy jobs, reduce our dependence on oil and place limits on global warming pollution.
The message of these young people is clear. They are determined to make their voices count in shaping the future that they and their children will inherit.
Jessy Tolkan, Executive Director of Energy Action Coalition said “Young people have an incredibly important role to play in demanding a clean energy future. They understand that we must pursue a ‘Yes We Can’ approach to our nation’s climate and energy challenges and that there are real consequences-for our economy, our security and the future of our planet-if Congress fails to act.”
These inspiring young leaders remind me of what Margaret Mead said about the power of individuals willing to stand together for what they believe in: “Never doubt that a group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”
