Energy transition – providing a soft landing for fossil fuel workers and communities.
A Just Transition
Transitioning to clean energy sources shouldn’t mean pulling the rug out from under communities or leaving workers without a safety net. But that’s exactly what coal, oil, and gas companies are doing when business is bad: paying executives millions, while neglecting communities and employees.
WildEarth Guardians believes it’s time for A Just Transition. That means providing resources for communities to shift to more sustainable, prosperous economies, and for workers to move into more secure and lucrative careers. To that end, we advocate for state, local, and federal legislation and leadership to secure a just transition for all.
