NUCLEAR-FREE CARBON-FREE


THANK YOU! to the many thousands of people who turned out for the Nuclear-Free, Carbon-Free Contingent to the People’s Climate March, and to the 400,000 marchers generally! It was inspiring; it was awesome. And thank you to the terrific speakers and performers who energized and educated the crowd on Sunday morning.

In the posts below you’ll find a photo gallery of the Contingent, from Saturday afternoon meeting to early Sunday morning preparations, through the speakers and performers at the rally through the march itself. We think you’ll enjoy it.

Video of each of the speakers and performers at the rally is now available here.

So, what’s next? The People’s Climate March was a great first step, but it wasn’t an end in itself. Rather, it’s the beginning of a new, broader, more powerful movement to effectively address our climate crisis and build the nuclear-free, carbon-free energy system necessary to power our planet cleanly, safely and affordably.

Here’s the next step: Tell the EPA to remove unnecessary and costly support for dirty, dangerous and expensive nuclear power from its Clean Power Plan. You can submit your comments easily here. Then ask your friends and colleagues to submit comments too. The nuclear power and fossil fuel industries are working hand-in-hand to dismantle renewable energy and energy efficiency programs that are working, and are already beginning to have an effect: renewable energy costs are plunging and deployment of solar and wind power is skyrocketing. But if the nuclear and fossil fuel industries gets their way, those gains will be lost. Here is a document we released on the eve of the People’s Climate March–Killing the Competition–that explains exactly what the nuclear industry is attempting to do. And it isn’t pretty. Your action is needed, now. The comment deadline ends December 1, 2014, so there is still time to reach out and help get as many people as possible to submit comments.

Below you’ll also find our basic statement: Why We Are Marching On September 21, 2014, and other posts and materials that should be useful in the coming weeks and months.
