Click here to send a quick note to the CEO'S of Microsoft, Amazon and Apple, asking them to clean our cloud.

Getting the internet off coal is a big deal. But here's why we can do it:

  • It's innovative: Microsoft, Amazon and Apple are the most cutting-edge companies in the world and they don't want their customers associating their brand with a 19th Century energy source that is poisoning the air and wrecking our climate.
  • It's practical: technology that uses clean and unlimited energy sources like the sun and the wind are available today at the scale required. Greenpeace is already working with Facebook to make the switch right now and we'd be happy to work with other major tech companies.
  • It's right: These aren't evil companies. Their executives care about the world their children will inherit, just like we do.

While logic and morality may be be on our side, the coal industry is fighting hard and spending billions to keep the tech giants hooked. Breaking the coal addiction will require a massive public outcry.

These companies need to know their customers are informed and demanding change.
