Today, we’re sharing some of the year’s most popular and important environmental stories (below), because none of us will be spared the devastation if we don’t take bold, decisive action to address our planet’s climate crisis — and fast.
While stopping the recklessness of the Trump regime and Congressional Republicans will take a long, concerted effort, there is something easy that we can all do to make a big impact starting today.
OD Action is proud to partner with America’s first nationwide clean energy company, Arcadia Power. The mission-driven company allows anyone in America to power their home with clean energy — whether you rent or own.
Plus, as part of our partnership, Arcadia will give everyone in the OD Action community $20 off their next power bill when they signup. There is no easier way to limit our personal consumption of dirty coal or to support renewable power.
So if you haven’t already, please take a moment to end this ridiculous year on a high note: stick it to Trump and advance America’s clean energy future by signing up for renewable power at home. Your children will thank you. And so will we.
