Glasgow is our moment.

We’ve entered the decisive decade for addressing climate change, and a successful COP 26 in early November is critical to our shared success — and no country can do it alone.

We must leave Glasgow with firm commitments from countries around the world not just to be net zero carbon by 2050 but with detailed roadmaps for action by 2030, or our ability to prevent climate disaster could be beyond reach. 

This is the moment. Glasgow is the last, best opportunity that we have and the best hope that the world will come together and build on Paris. This decade, 2020 to 2030, must be the decade of action.

Economic Gains Of Climate Action:
  • Recent research utilizing the U.S. Energy Policy Simulator forecasts that transforming the United States’ economy toward net-zero emissions by 2050 and achieving the emissions reductions in 2030 required for a 1.5°C trajectory could increase U.S. GDP by $570 billion per year in 2030 and by $920 billion per year in 2050 (a 2.4% annual GDP expansion).

  • A 2019 working paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research found that if emissions of greenhouse gases are not significantly cut in keeping with the goals of the Paris accord, the U.S. could see a 10.5 percent cut in real income by 2100.
