Defund Formosa Plastics

Defund Formosa Plastics

Last year, every major US bank committed to achieving “net zero emissions by 2050.” But those same banks are continuing to fund the expansion of the fossil fuel industry. One of the most egregious examples of fossil fuel expansion is happening in St. James, Louisiana, where Formosa Plastics is trying to build a massive new …

Tell banks to stop funding climate chaos

Become a customer for climate justice and bank on action, not on climate change

Since the Paris Agreement was signed, Wall Street banks have loaned nearly $1.2 trillion to the fossil fuel industry. That money isn’t coming from the government, or from rich investors — it’s coming from regular customers with bank accounts and credit cards just like you and me. Now, customers like you and me are fighting …

Fight fossil fascists with solar energy

Sign now: Use the Defense Production Act to build a clean energy arsenal of freedom

For years we’ve spoken out against fossil fueled fascists, both here in the US and abroad. This week, President Biden took a big step towards fighting fossil fascism by banning all US imports of Russian fossil fuels. We were one of more than 200 groups here in the US that called on Biden to take …

Stop Willow Call to action

Join the fight to protect the Arctic! 

Just before he left office, the defeated former President Trump issued a rushed permit for a massive new oil and gas drilling project in the Arctic. The so called “willow” drilling project would be a disaster for local communities already over-burdened with pollution and extraction, and for our collective climate. Willow project alone would produce …

Put POTUS Joe Biden on notice before the State of the Union

President Biden campaigned promised to be a climate champion, and is about to give his first State of the Union address. But a year into his presidency Biden has failed to deliver on many of his promises. Even worse, many the Administration’s recent actions have betrayed Black, Indigenous and global majority communities who turned out …

FOX News lies, hold them accountable

DePlatform FOX News, and take back the cable airwaves for climate justice.

FOX News lies. A lot. FOX News lies about climate change, about the pandemic, and about elections and democracy. But while freedom of speech guarantees FOX News the right to say hateful, dangerous, untrue things – freedom of the press does not require us to pay them for the privilege. But that’s exactly what happens …

Tell FERC to stop work on the MVP, Now

We’ve been telling you for years about the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP), a 300+ mile long fracked-gas pipeline from fracking fields in West Virginia near Pennsylvania, through Virginia, and all the way into North Carolina. The project is still years behind schedule, drowning in debt, and which locals have fought on land, in the courts, …

Frozen power lines

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 …

Methane Gas flare

Sign now to tell the EPA to crack down on methane pollution

The EPA has a chance to crack down on methane pollution and reverse the Biden Administration’s terrible track record (so far) on fossil fuels Biden’s failures are numerous: They permitted 34% more oil and gas drilling in their first year than Trump; the Department of Energy is investing billions of dollars in false solutions like …
