In response to Trump administration’s latest executive order that begins to repeal the Clean Power Plan (CPP) and environmental protections, the Peoples Climate Movement is demonstrating itself as a massive and wide-reaching movement in opposition to this dangerous step that puts people and the planet at grave risk. The PCM is a broad-based ground-breaking coalition of hundreds of faith-based, labor unions, NGOs, indigenous, civil rights and environmental justice groups working together to build bold solutions that tackle climate change, rooted in economic and racial justice. Ecopreneurs for the Climate we have recently joined the coalition with the aim of boosting cooperative, sustainable, and sound businesses that tackle climate change.
“The executive order, by an administration that favors corporate profits over clean air and water, puts our country, our communities and our people at great risk. It also sends a dangerous message to the world that the United States does not care about climate change or protecting frontline communities,” said Paul Getsos, National Coordinator, PCM.
This move, along with past comments and actions illustrates the Trump administration’s continued commitment to undermining any progress in addressing environmental and economic justice. The CPP is a critical component in curbing climate change and an important step in transitioning to a clean energy economy that creates family sustaining jobs in a variety of growing industries.
To combat these continued attacks on climate action and protecting front-line communities, the PCM is gearing up for a mass mobilization to March for Climate, Jobs and Justice, on April 29. Tens of thousands of people have already signed up to converge in Washington DC (USA), as well as in cities and communities around the globe, to push the US Government, and world leaders, to do their jobs – protect our planet, our communities and transition to a renewable energy future.
We, the Ecopreneurs for the Climate, we call on ecopreneurs all over the world to participate in the mobilization, and actively join the People’s Climate Movement 🙂
