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.

Duke Energy claims its growth of renewable energy sources “soared” in 2021, but the company generated just 5.4 percent of its electricity from wind and solar last year, according to a report the company released on Tuesday.
Even as Duke Energy seeks to hobble rooftop solar in North Carolina, science is pouring in showing how disastrous and outdated Duke’s preferred fuel is. With methane emissions breaking all records, climate scientists insist cutting the venting of the highly potent climate pollutant would be the fastest – and likely the only – chance to avert total chaos.
The opening round of legal arguments in a hotly contested regulatory case with major ramifications for Duke Energy’s business model yielded a solid front of opposition to the corporation’s decade-long effort to block competition from solar power.
