America's Green New Deal

First Nationwide Action, February 5 - 25, 2019

Guess what's hitting the ground running today, Monday February 11, in Utah and 400 other cities and towns across America:   the "Green New Deal", a proposal to convert all U.S. power plants, buildings and vehicles in America as completely as possible, within one decade,  from fossil fuel to clean, renewable fuels.


Due to the superb organizing of the millennial-generation youths behind the "Sunrise Movement", a Green New Deal Resolution introduced just a few days ago in the U.S. House and Senate already has 57 House and 11 Senate cosponsors including four announced Democratic presidential candidates.  Now the real work begins.   Which side are you on?   This is the chance of a lifetime to Make America Green Again, take back our country's self-respect, and rescue the wonders of evolution and human civilization from onrushing catastrophe.


Each of you will have during the next three weeks an opportunity to stand tall for immediate, fully adequate, and timely Climate Change Action, by doing some or all of the things listed below in order of difficulty.
