Iron & Earth’s blooming climate action

To the editor;

Globally, many are advocating for Climate Action.

Iron & Earth are Canadian oil sands workers advocating for accelerated renewable energy development. Iron & Earth wants to prune sickly fossil fuel booms and busts and politically whimsical, off-shore energy supplies, and cultivate a reliable, domestic, sustainable energy future that is equitable for workers, their families, communities, the economy, and the environment.

Iron & Earth twigs that renewable energy has already germinated tens of thousands of Canadian jobs with the potential to spawn millions more requiring their members’ skills. Iron & Earth’s goal is for workers to transfer seamlessly from fossil fuel to renewable energy jobs as the former blossoms while the latter wilts and dies.

Iron & Earth is uniting oil and gas workers, businesses, non-profits, politicians, and Canadians who favour a sustainable future where employment is steady, the environment is protected, and our energy supply is secure and sufficient.
