“This incredible coalition of leaders has come together to show us that across America, businesses, institutions, citizens, and cultural icons agree that the time is now for bold action to address climate change,” said John Marshall, CEO of Potential Energy Coalition.
The ad was produced by Deutsch NY in partnership with Director Michael Marantz and Hometeam Productions, with backing from Potential Energy Coalition and Bloomberg Philanthropies, and in partnership with the America is All In Coalition Home - America Is All In. Postproduction was done by Cosmo Street. The initial buy will target beltway media markets and will air during prominent slots on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox including The Rachel Maddow Show, Fox and Friends, and the Situation Room.

“The climate crisis is already at New Belgium’s door, from wildfires impacting our water supply to droughts decimating our barley fields,” said Dana Villeneuve, Policy Advocacy and Sustainability Specialist at New Belgium Brewing. “What threatens our business threatens our community – that's why we're investing in climate resilience, setting science-based targets, and certifying our brands as carbon neutral. But we can’t do this alone. We need federal action that meets the urgency of this moment by investing now in a prosperous future for American communities and businesses.”
“What was once climate change is now a climate crisis, and it will take all of us to change our current trajectory,” said Kathleen McLaughlin, Walmart’s Chief Sustainability Officer. “We are committed to helping communities live better and that means taking action on climate change.
