The Alliance is a unique non-profit, non-partisan organization that is committed to educating the global community about the urgency of implementing comprehensive solutions to the climate crisis.
The Alliance for Climate Protection was founded in 2006 by Al Gore, Nobel Laureate and former Vice President of the United States. Through its projects Ãƒâ€˜ Repower America, the WE Campaign, and the Reality Coalition Ãƒâ€˜ and its affiliated organization, The Climate Protection Action Fund, the Alliance seeks to present choices and offer changes that will protect our planet for future generations. The WE Campaign is a sustained national effort to catalyze a broad community-level shift on the issue of climate change, educating Americans about the urgency and solvability of the climate crisis. Combining an unprecedented mass media campaign with an award-winning online organizing effort, the WE Campaign demonstrates the importance of people coming together to solve the climate crisis. Repower America was launched in 2008 by Al Gore in a pioneering speech that hit the reset button on America's clean energy goals with a bold plan to "repower" our country and revitalize our national energy infrastructure. At its core, Repower America advocates investment in energy efficiency, clean renewable energy sources, a unified smart energy national grid and clean air technology. The Reality Campaign is a coalition-led effort that was created to reveal the truth about coal: there is no such thing as clean coal electricity in the United States today. Since coal plants are singlehandedly responsible for a full third of AmericaÃƒâ€¢s carbon dioxide pollution, coal is one of the chief causes of global warming today. The Reality Campaign challenges the coal industry to come clean, encourages Americans to question the claim of clean coal, and urges the United States to immediately invest in the technologies necessary to stop carbon polluting from entering the atmosphere.
