The Green Economy Library

Welcome and thanks for visiting! This library is a free, open-access tool for anyone who needs access to good quality, well-researched, comprehensive information that helps them advocate for a livable future and learn about the complex aspects of our energy system and a just transition. Together, we can build the energy future that we dream of.

Electrify everything, increase energy efficiency, invest in wind and solar energy, and promote energy justice. These are some of the biggest steps we need to take to reach a 100% renewable energy future that is clean and affordable to all.

To learn more about false solutions like methane and hydrogen, click the image above.
Since its inception, nuclear energy has been falsely marketed as a clean energy source. Yet there are numerous harmful impacts from radioactive waste and contaminated waterways on workers, their communities, and the communities hosting radioactive waste, as well. Click on the image above to learn more about the true costs of nuclear energy.
