Most media are doing a terrible job of conveying to the public the urgency of climate change, the availability of solutions and the obstacles to those solutions.

Here is more about our past work to change Duke Energy’s business model and slow climate change before it’s too late:
In 2015, NC WARN and allies filed an Emergency Complaint with then-Attorney General Roy Cooper, calling on him to use his constitutional authority to investigate Duke Energy’s corporate charter and require Duke Energy to truly act in the public interest as its charter requires.
Dukeasaurus helped us send former Duke Energy CEO Jim Rogers the message that he should act now to secure a positive climate legacy.
Duke Energy spilled tons of toxic coal ash into the Dan River in 2014, launching a movement demanding that Duke clean up its mess and not make its customers pay the costs.
