Petition the U.S. military to switch to 100% renewable energy
- February 18, 2021
Dear Department of Defense,
We are a group of U.S. citizens who are deeply concerned about climate change. We call on the Department of Defense to switch to 100% renewable energy by 2025. The Pentagon alone emits 2% of all fossil fuels that come from the United States, so switching to renewable energy would make a big difference in fighting the climate crisis. Such action is necessary in order to preserve the future of our planet and young people everywhere.
We also ask that you work directly with vulnerable communities and grassroots organizations to tackle the effects of climate change as well as environmental injustices. Those in our country who are contributing least to climate change are the ones getting hit the hardest by it, and they/we need your help.
We don’t have time to waste. Thank you for your consideration.
