CARBON COUNTDOWN CLOCK

Pennsylvania’s Call to Action

If we want to keep global warming under 2 degrees Celsius, there is only a finite amount of carbon pollution Earth can emit. The amount can be thought of as a fixed budget amount, or quota.

This Carbon Countdown Clock is tracking the time we have left until that budget is depleted and we’ve done permanent damage to the planet. The clock ultimately serves as a reminder to all Pennsylvanians that we have a responsibility to address climate change. Call, write and meet with your state Senator now and ask them to join me in taking legislative steps to reduce our carbon footprint.

Modernizing Pennsylvania’s Renewable Energy Standards

Global climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing our generation. It has already had significant impacts on the environment, from rising sea levels to more extreme weather events, costing businesses, governments and taxpayers billions of dollars. Pennsylvanians are feeling the effects of climate change more and more – especially in the form of extreme rainfall and flooding. It is long overdue that we implement stronger renewable energy goals to create good jobs, cut pollution and ensure a sustainable and prosperous Pennsylvania for future generations.
