The Energy Reality Pledge

Energy is at the heart of the human predicament in the 21st century. The ecological and economic costs of non-renewable (and disappearing) fossil fuels are rising rapidly, and dragging down our economy. In every sense of the word, this is unsustainable. It’s time to remake our energy economy under different terms. Join the rest of us who are ready to create our own energy future that doesn’t destroy the planet… just to keep the lights on.


I’m ready for an energy reality that:

• Prioritizes reducing overall demand for energy through efficiency and curtailment.

• Treats fossil fuels like the valuable, limited resources they are.

• Shifts from centralized non-renewable energy supplied by unaccountable multinationals to decentralized renewable energy produced by communities.

• Minimizes the environmental and social impacts of this transition.”
