Climate change is very close to moving past a point of no return, accelerating under its own momentum no matter what humans do.
It is already devastating millions of people, especially low-wealth communities who are least responsible for causing it. NC WARN tackles this crisis by vigorously pressing Duke Energy to join — or at least stop impeding — the clean energy revolution. Because North Carolina deserves better than pollution and cronyism.
