Pollution harms the unborn, causing damage that last’s a lifetime. Dirty air and water has serious consequences for the health of our children and other vulnerable populations like the elderly.
This is why pro-life Christians must lead the charge on clean energy, and why the Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN) will organize half a million pro-life Christians to participate in our Pro-Life Clean Energy Campaign.
It is time to stop poisoning the womb and our environment and create a cleaner, brighter future for our children, free from pollution.
We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform how we create electricity for our homes and businesses – not with the old, dirty, outdated, wasteful approaches from the past, like coal-burning power plants run by state-sanctioned monopolies – but with clean, new, innovative approaches like those powered by wind and by sunshine, such as rooftop solar, owned by families and individuals.
We are asking our elected officials to do what’s right, stand up to utility monopolies protecting their profits at our expense, and defend the right of families, individuals, communities, and businesses to help set us free from pollution by creating our own clean electricity and selling what we don’t need to others.
Here is what half a million pro-life Christians will be fighting for, and what we’re asking from our elected officials:
- Free our children from pollution all across America with 100% clean electricity from renewable resources by 2030.
- Defend our freedom to create our own electricity from sunshine, without fees championed by monopolistic utilities to make it unaffordable and out of reach.
- Free our communities from regulations that prevent us from joining together to create our own clean electricity and sell what we don’t need to others.
- Free businesses from such regulations so that they, too, can create and sell clean electricity.
Our Pro-Life Clean Energy Campaign begins in six states: Texas, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Indiana. In each state our activists will ask the Governor to create a plan to have 100% of the state's electricity come from clean renewable resources by 2030 while simultaneously achieving our other objectives.
Our campaign will also support near-term policy initiatives that help us achieve our goals, such as net metering policies, renewable electricity standards, and tax credits to encourage homeowners and businesses to purchase solar panels and other clean energy systems.
