The Case for Climate Mobilization

What is a Climate Mobilization?
Why do we need it?
What would it include?

Since introducing the Pledge to Mobilize, I  have received many of these questions about what, exactly, The Climate Mobilization is advocating, and whether or how it is compatible with other proposed climate solutions.

Ezra Silk, deputy director of The Climate Mobilization and I have just published our most thorough answers to these questions to date. The Case for Mobilization is a 50-page document that uses bullet points and clear language to lay out the reasons why we are already in a climate emergency, and why national economic and social mobilization is the only way to fight climate change that can actually secure our civilization and democracy. It is the most comprehensive articulation yet of our vision.

We hope that Mobilizers will find The Case for Mobilization useful in sharpening their arguments and recruiting efforts, and that interested or skeptical people will read this document to understand what TCM is all about. Please take a look.  Constructive comments and feedback on this document are very welcome!

Thank you to Michael Hoexter and Philip Sutton for invaluable input.
