Thank the California Democratic Party for refusing Big Oil money!

On November 19, the California Democratic Party announced that it would refuse contributions from Big Oil. That's a big bold step for a party that had taken tens of thousands from Chevron and other fossil fuel companies polluting California's air, in the past - and a strong commitment to leading the nation away from a Trump presidency and toward a better future. Add your name to thank the party, to ask the next chair to keep the ban on fossil fuel contributions to the party, and to ask the Democratic National Committee and other state Democratic parties to join the ban!

To the California Democratic Party: Thank you for refusing Big Oil money!

    We must keep fossil fuels in the ground.

    We currently have all the scientific and technical knowledge and the physical resources to get all of the energy we need from renewables, according to Mark Z. Jacobson, Director of the Atmosphere/Energy Program and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University. Feed-in-tariffs—which have helped put Germany and Ontario, Canada at the forefront of the transition to green energy—are promoted by Oregonians for Renewable Energy Progress (OREP) as an important policy tool to incentivize this transition.

    America’s path to prosperity lies in a rapid switch-over to abundant, homegrown, renewable energy to power our homes, businesses, and vehicles—NOT in facilitating extracting and exporting of dirty, polluting coal, oil, and gas, which represents a retreat from the 21st Century economy. Renewable energy already employs 2.7 million workers (more than the fossil fuel industry) and studies have shown that green energy will continue to create far more jobs than the fossil fuel industries. [see: Sizing the Clean Economy, A National and Regional Green Jobs Assessment by the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institute, 2011.] A U.S.-led, green, industrial revolution will move our economy forward, create millions of new jobs, and help ensure a livable planet for future generations.
