Abstract

Clean Energy Action provides a number of programs through its 501(c)(3) educational non-profit in order to achieve its vision of "Accelerating the transition from fossil fuels to a clean energy economy." The organization has built its reputation on providing a factual basis for why this transition must be accelerated and how citizens can work in their communities and beyond to achieve this goal. These facts are informed by the science that many of the researchers at INSTAAR have done. RJ will provide details of the Citizen Power programs and how your science informs the facts that help citizens take action to repower their communities.
