• We Need Alternatives To Carbon Energy Climate change threatens the planet's living systems. We must find a better way.
  • Destroying Our Public Lands is Not The Answer Industrial concentrating solar may guarantee profits for Big Energy, but it's no way to a sane energy future.
  • There Is A Better Way We can change our energy use without destroying fragile landscapes like this one.
  • We Must Reduce Our Consumption Energy efficiency measures could cut our power consumption by one third.
  • Generate Power Where It's Used Decentralized, distributed power generation makes sense, saves money, and protects wildlands.

Habitat destruction threatens the diversity of life on our planet. Renewable energy strategies that damage habitat only make the problem worse. Distributed generation such as rooftop solar is the faster, cheaper, cleaner and more effective way of meeting our energy needs in the next century.
