Consequence is the largest youth coalition ever assembled to call for a comprehensive energy and climate plan that delivers clean energy jobs, less pollution, and a more secure America. Young people have an incredibly important role to play in demanding a clean energy future. They understand that we must pursue a “Yes We Can” approach to our nation’s climate and energy challenges, and that there are real consequences—for our economy, our security and the future of our planet—if our nation fails to act.
Through an intensive grassroots effort to educate, organize, mobilize these young voters, the partners of the Consequence campaign will ensure that Americans know that young people demand a commitment to a clean energy economy that creates millions of clean energy jobs, reduces our dependence on foreign oil and curbs dangerous global warming pollution.
Youth have the most to lose from the impending climate catastrophe, and the most to gain from a new clean energy economy. In 2008, our decisive effort on the Obama campaign proved our political might. In 2009, our collective voice can be the deciding factor in the battle for strong clean energy reform. Standing together we cannot — and will not — be ignored.
