At the 2016 Democratic National Platform Committee meeting, Russell Greene and David Braun describe the need for a WWII scale climate mobilization, and their amendment is successfully adopted into the national party platform with an overwhelming majority!

"Democrats believe it would be a grave mistake for the United States to wait for another nation to lead the world in combating the global climate emergency. In fact, we must move first in launching a green industrial revolution, because that is the key to getting others to follow; and because it is in our own national interest to do so. Just as America’s greatest generation led the effort to defeat the Axis Powers during World War II, so must our generation now lead a World War II-type national mobilization to save civilization from catastrophic consequences. We must think beyond Paris. In the first 100 days of the next administration, the President will convene a summit of the world’s best engineers, climate scientists, climate experts, policy experts, activists and indigenous communities to chart a course toward the healthy future we all want for our families and communities."
-The full text of their amendment: Insert p. 35 line 5.
