Step It Up, 1Sky Want You to Give the Green Finger


Step It Up and 1Sky have launched a campaign to create a massive nationwide movement to mobilize the United States to reduce climate pollution "immediately and forever."

The green finger, representing "1 sky," has been chosen to symbolize the need for one, united call to action, while demonstrating support for the three priorities 1Sky has drafted, based on what scientists have deemed necessary to stabilize our climate.

Who or what will you be voting to protect next year?
The 1Sky solutions:

1. Mobilize America for Solutions: Launch a Clean Energy Job Corps as the first wave and create 5 million new jobs in the United States. The Corps will help us conserve 20% of our energy by 2015 with a sweeping national mobilization for climate solutions, healthy communities, and energy independence.

2. Secure Our Future: Cut global warming pollution 30 percent by 2020. This will establish America as a strong partner in the global campaign for solutions, while getting us on a realistic path to reductions of at least 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050, the level that scientists say is necessary. Pass climate policies to trigger a clean energy revolution that revitalizes our economy, enhances our security, protects consumers, and provides new opportunities to realize the American dream.

3. Transform Our Energy Priorities: Reprogram fossil fuel and highway investments for clean energy and transportation choices. Start with a firm moratorium on new coal plants, unless and until they can permanently dispose of their global warming pollution.
