Abandoning fossil fuels for cleaner alternatives. Regardless of whether they cause global warming, they pollute our cities and destroy the air quality.
Ending deforestation of the rainforests. We want to preserve the habitat of rare animals and the natural beauty.
Improving public transportation. Traffic congestion is a bitch, and if I had a subway or rail system nearby to take me where I needed to go, I would love it.
Cars are expensive and require your attention for the duration of your commute.
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but definitely the big ones I've seen a lot.
It's possible that there's some other action being recommended for climate change that I've overlooked or forgotten.
I don't believe that destroying the coal industry to grow green energy industries is a bad thing.
So if you have a view of the financial aspect that's not protecting a certain industry that's more than welcome as well!
Edit: It seems that most people are bringing up economic or financial arguments.
I think /u/10ebbor10 argued better than most could as to why this is a good reason, but I don't think any financial or economic argument could sway me.
If you've got any negative effects of these acts or other commonly-touted acts that you think I don't know, please still share!
