2012 will be a critical year for influencing the national discussion on climate change and energy. The Tar Sands Action, Moving Planet, and the growing #occupy movement have built a wave of public engagement on corporate money in politics—and energy and climate are at the center of that fight. From Keystone XL to fossil fuel extraction, utility fights and embattled EPA pollution regulations, advocates have the opportunity to take a bold stance, demanding that leaders at all levels of government step up to the plate and side with people over polluters.
350.org is taking a national leadership role in putting climate and energy at the center of the political debate in 2012 through grassroots organizing, mobilizing, and visibility actions in key states throughout the US. Concurrently, we will help build, train and resource an insurgent grassroots army of climate and energy volunteer leaders, helping to make the growing climate movement a powerful, sustained political constituency.
