We have a decade to avoid climate catastrophe. It’s time to go Zero to 100.
We can solve our climate crisis by moving urgently to zero emissions and 100% clean energy.
Earthjustice is using the power of the law to stand up to polluters, advance clean energy solutions, protect public health, and fight for justice for the planet and its people.
Earthjustice endorses the 100% Clean Energy Economy Act of 2019, which would require the United States to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across our whole economy by 2050 to avoid the worst impacts of the climate crisis.
The UN Petition: Climate Rights
Sixteen young people from around the world submitted a groundbreaking legal complaint to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child. Earthjustice and global law firm Hausfeld are representing the 16 youths in this matter.
The Climate Strikers
Watch the story of Sarah, a high school freshman who is striking for climate justice: We are proud to stand in solidarity with millions of young people around the world for the Global Climate Strike.
Earthjustice is partnering with climate leaders and communities on the frontlines of pollution to:
1. Move beyond fossil fuels.
2. Clear the way for clean energy.
We’re fighting for policies that get us to 100% clean, pollution-free energy and removing barriers that stand in the way. We’re expanding access to solar for low-income families and standing up for consumers. From transportation to buildings to the energy grid, we’re working to power our entire economy with clean energy.
Earthjustice endorses the 100% Clean Energy Economy Act of 2019, legislation that outlines a bold path for the country to move to zero emissions and 100% clean energy to solve the climate crisis.
3. Make sure everyone benefits.
We partnered with frontline environmental justice and national environmental groups to develop The Equitable & Just National Climate Platform. We’re putting this shared vision into action to make sure climate solutions confront racial, economic, and environmental injustice while building a clean energy economy that works for everyone.
4. Take on the next frontiers.
As we transition to 100% clean energy, we’re tackling other major contributors to the climate crisis that threaten to undermine our progress.
We’re protecting vital forest lands that absorb carbon and regulate our climate. We’re promoting climate-smart agriculture practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance the carbon-sink potential of soils. And we’re challenging new petrochemical plants that would use fossil fuels to make plastics, at a huge cost for public health and our climate.
