Challenge

Congress makes decisions that affect our energy, natural resource, and climate policies--with limited federal dollars and time--and new staff all the time. National policy supporting clean, renewable energy, will lead to less burning of dirty carbon-based fuels, saving lives and reducing the already evident impacts of climate change.

Solution

EESI organizes well-regarded briefings on Capitol Hill to share compelling speakers and stories about moving ahead on key energy and climate change issues. The briefings explain the many impacts of climatic shifts already here, highlighting the devastating impacts on people, especially the poorest among us. You help us bring forward policy solutions for resilient communities, based on clean energy. EESI is highly respected within Congress for providing compelling stories and timely facts.

Long-Term Impact

Climate change affects every living thing on the planet. The US Congress plays a pivotal role in the effectiveness of the global response to climate change. Policies that reduce emissions, improve the quality of the air we breathe and water we drink, or move us to clean renewable energy, will save uncountable people from famine, disease, flooding, and fire. Hurricane Matthew, just one extreme event, was responsible for at least 49 deaths and $15 billion in damages in the US alone.
