President Biden and Speaker Johnson are locked in a global fight over LNG exports and climate change

Enough with the nonsense, let’s ban LNG exports now.

We told you a week or two ago about fossil fueled fascist House Speaker Mike Johnson’s plan to repeal President Biden’s pause on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exports in exchange for aiding Ukraine. MAGA Mike is still trying to head off an insurrection from inside his own fossil fascist caucus. But there is a simpler …

FEMA isn't prepared for climate disaster

Sign the petition: We are in the midst of the climate crisis–we must overhaul disaster relief

We’ve all seen the climate fueled disaster headlines: floods, wildfires, draughts, and more. This week, world leaders head to another round of international climate talks, and a key area of disagreement will again be the debt historic polluters (like the US) owe to those hit first and worst by climate change. But before they fly …

Pope Francis Joe Biden fire earth meme

Pope Francis is right, it’s time to stop burning fossil fuels.

Pope Francis has written another good and timely encyclical calling the catholic faithful and all people of good moral conscience to action on climate change. Since it’s a Sunday we thought we’d share it – you can read it here and I endorse this summary of it by David Wallace Wells. And while it’s always …

Tell President Biden to declare a climate emergency

Leading in the wrong direction: Tell President President Biden to declare climate an emergency & stop all new fossil fuels

This week, President Biden’s Department of Energy announced that US exports of crude oil set a new record high — averaging 3.99 million barrels per day (b/d). It’s the most oil we’ve exported, ever, since the crude oil export ban was lifted in 2015. Coincidentally (or not), ExxonMobil announced it is acquiring a major rival …

Tell President Biden and the Coast Guard to stop SPOT – the Sea Port Oil Terminal

Nov 22 Update: The Biden Administration has unfortunately (and frustratingly) approved the application for the Sea Port Oil Terminal (SPOT). This is the offshore oil export terminal we told you about a few moths ago (see below for the original post) that will increase cancer-causing air pollutants in Texas’ Brazoria and Harris counties and make …

Protect Cancer Alley, Declare a Climate Emergency

With the climate crisis on full blast, we are joining our partners from Rise St. James next week in Washington, D.C. to demand that President Biden protect residents of Cancer Alley and Gulf Coast communities from fossil fuel pollution and declare a climate emergency. Join the procession with Rise St. James on October 25.  When …

President Biden and Puerto Rican Governor Pierluisi in front of a super imposed image of Huricaine Fiona and a flooded street

Puerto Rico needs a reliable, clean, electric grid – not hugs and prayers.

President Biden made a welcome and empathetic trip to Puerto Rico this week. No paper towels were thrown. Don’t get me wrong, Biden is doing a much better job at disaster recovery than the defeated fossil fueled fascist Trump. But Puerto Rico needs more than prayers and empathy, they need a functioning power grid that’s …

Tell President Biden to declare a climate emergency

It’s still time for President Biden to declare a climate emergency.

President Biden is hosting a party at the White House today to celebrate the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). But when the party is over and the applause dies dies down America will still be facing a climate emergency — and it will still be time for President Biden to declare one. While …

Tell FEMA to prioritize climate disaster relief for Black and brown communities hit first and worst.

We’ve said again and again that Dr Bullard has it right: Climate chaos hits Black and brown communities first and worst. Exhibit A remains the US Gulf South: In February 2021, an Arctic blast brought devastation to communities across the Gulf, with particularly intense impacts for Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Caribbean communities. And research shows …
