West Virginia Climate Alliance Promotes Three Major Goals

Shall we save planet earth or look for another one?

Twenty WV State-Wide Organizations are Cooperating in the Public Interest

From the West Virginia Climate Alliance, Organized in September 2020

The West Virginia Climate Alliance is a broad-based coalition of almost 20 environmental organizations, faith-based, civil rights and civic organizations, and other groups focused on climate change. Members of the Alliance work together to provide science-based education on climate change to West Virginia citizens and policymakers. We seek to advance climate solutions that focus on three pillars of reform:

1) Climate justice for communities that have borne the brunt of our current fossil-fuel economy

2) A true transition for coal miners and other fossil fuel workers likely to be impacted by the transition to a low-carbon economy

3) A significant reduction in greenhouse gases in accordance with the findings of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
