The League supports the preservation of the physical, chemical and biological integrity of the ecosystem and maximum protection of public health and the environment.
|WHY IT MATTERS
The CEJA would put Illinois on a path to 100% renewable energy by 2050, cut carbon from the power sector by 2030, reduce the equivalent of 1 million gasoline and diesel powered vehicles from the road and create jobs and economic opportunity. Read more on the Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition Fact Sheet.
Not quite last, and definitely not least…
One of the most important things you must do if we are to move the needle on our community’s perception on climate change is to TALK about it. Why do YOU care about climate change? Talking about climate change normalizes the issue. The League and the scientific community have your back.
