The time has come to transition to 100% clean, renewable energy with the urgency that the science demands. From mega-storms to drought & wildfires, communities across the country are already experiencing the severe impacts of climate change, and no place is more ‘at risk’ than Pinellas county. The good news is that numerous studies show that it is technologically & economically feasible to achieve 100% clean energy across the country by 2050, if not sooner. Clean energy is safer and is already cheaper than fossil fuels; and clean energy industries are growing rapidly and creating good jobs faster than the rest of the economy.
3 years ago, St. Pete became the 1st city in the S.E. to commit to a 100% clean energy future, and since then 154 other cities across the country have followed! These include Pinellas cities like Largo, Dunedin and Safety Harbor; other FL cities like Sarasota, Orlando, Gainesville, Tallahassee and Satellite Beach. Big cities like Atlanta, Chicago, San Diego and Cleveland, and small towns with one red light. 7 states have made the commitment including: CA, HI, NM, NE, WA, NY, ME, as well as PR & DC. In fact, 1 in 4 Americans now lives in one of these cities, counties or states!
Local municipal leadership is needed to shepherd us towards a clean energy future and it’s time for Pinellas County to do our part to fight climate change. This will save taxpayers money on municipal operations, grow our economy, create good jobs, clean up our air & water and protect our most valuable economic asset: our beautiful coasts & waterways. Most of the steps along the path, like investing in energy efficiency and solar, will generate rapid & lasting Returns on Investment that will free up funds for other critical needs.
We no longer need to rely on fossil fuels; we have cleaner & more affordable solutions right now. We are ready to build a future where everyone lives and works in an energy efficient home, school and workplace, with access to clean, affordable renewable energy for all.
Sign the petition asking the County Commission to pass a resolution to commit both the county and the entire community to a 100% clean energy future.
Pinellas is #ReadyFor100
