Summary

We are at a crossroads. The choices we make in the next couple years will determine whether we’re on a path of decisive climate action or continue with unchecked carbon pollution.

We need the Kootenays to phase-out fossil fuels and be on 100% renewable energy in all sectors no later than 2050 in order to do our fair share to prevent the worst climate impacts of carbon pollution, like drought, floods, wildfires and other extreme weather events.

This transition must also support low-income people, provide justice and reconciliation for Indigenous Peoples, and retrain workers from the fossil fuel industry to green jobs. Change is possible. Join us today.
