The San Diego Climate Mobilization Coalition is part of The Climate Mobilization.Org, which is a worldwide movement out of New York City led by Climate Psychologist Margaret Klein Salamon, calling on the President, the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate to implement a World War II-scale National Mobilization to transition the U.S. off Fossil Fuels and onto clean, safe, Wind, Water and Solar Renewable Energy at wartime speed, as computer modeled by Environmental Engineering Professor Mark Jacobson and his colleagues at Stanford University.
On The Climate Mobilization.Org website is a Pledge that people can take to show their support for a World War II-scale National Mobilization. It is very important for individuals to take this Pledge because our elected officials are watching to see how many citizens want a Climate Mobilization.
Naomi Klein, in her book, “This Changes Everything, Capitalism vs The Climate,” says that a citizen’s mass movement is necessary to end fossil fuels because the coal, oil and gas industries own the U.S. Congress. She says that about 3 per cent of the people are all that is required to make the change to Green Energy. In San Diego, 3 percent is about 30,000 people and the goal of the San Diego Climate Mobilization is to have Mobilization Rallies of 30,000 people. Nationwide, about 9 million people will be required to attend rallies in order to get the Congress to act. Just recently, the Democratic Party included in its National Platform a plank calling for a National Wartime Mobilization to combat climate change.
And, also, Bill McKibben, author, environmentalist and leader of the anti-carbon group 350.Org, has recently written in The New Republic magazine that a World War II-style Mobilization is what we need to solve the climate crisis.
