Did you know that cars, trucks, and other forms of transportation account for nearly 30 percent of America’s climate pollution?
With climate change barreling down on us, from devastating floods in the Midwest, to wildfires on the West Coast, it seems like the news brings new stories of climate disruption every day. Our Earth needs us to take action to save our communities from dirty air and water.
Now, imagine YOU could be part of the climate solution. With electric vehicles, you don’t have to give up driving a car to still be an environmental activist. You just need to get rid of your GAS car for something more environmentally-friendly. CCAN is giving you an opportunity to do just that!
Thanks to a generous CCAN donor, we’ve been gifted a 2019 Tesla Model 3 electric vehicle – and we’ve launched a Climate Tesla raffle and one lucky winner will win the Tesla!
It’s a win-win. You win a Tesla, while helping CCAN fund more climate victories like the our most recent victories in DC, where we passed a 100% renewable electricity mandate by 2032, and most recently in Maryland, where lawmakers passed the ambitious Clean Energy Jobs Act that moves Maryland to a 50% Renewable Portfolio Standard by 2030, and forces Maryland to study how to get to 100% clean power by 2040.
The Tesla Model 3 is fully electric, so you never need to visit a gas station again. If you charge overnight at home, you can wake up to a full battery every morning. And when you’re on the road, it’s easy to plug in along the way—at any public station or with the Tesla charging network. There are currently over 12,000 Superchargers worldwide, with six new locations opening every week. And Maryland has a plan to create 5,000 new charging stations across the state.
Having seen the interior, I can confirm this is a very cool car. Most of the car’s controls have been replaced by the central dashboard touch screen monitor. It really makes you feel like you’re living in the future.
What’s even more attractive, however, is knowing that you’re contributing to a zero emissions future by driving this car. And, moreover, each ticket purchase goes towards funding CCAN’s climate work. You can take pleasure in knowing that our organizers in the field are empowered by your donation, and we’ll continue to fight every day for healthy communities working for more public transit, walk-able & bike-able cities, and, of course, more electric vehicle infrastructure.
The raffle will close at 4:00pm on Friday, May 31, and the drawing will take place at 5:00pm that day. Enter today! http://climatetesla.org
