Defund Formosa Banner Charlotte NC

Show up to tell Bank of America to stop banking on pollution and climate chaos.

Last year, Bank of America committed to achieving “net zero emissions by 2050.” And earlier this month, they announced 2030 targets to reduce the emissions “intensity” from its investments.  But the truth is that between 2016 and 2021, Bank of America provided $232 billion in lending and underwriting to the fossil fuel industry. That makes …

Wall Street’s Moment of Truth: Defund Climate Chaos

*Update* For the next eight weeks we’re taking the fight to the shareholder meetings of every major US bank and several major insurance companies. This is a real opportunity for change, because every single shareholder meeting will have a vote on whether or not to end support for fossil fuel expansion. If you want to …

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 …

Divest our pensions

Divest our Pension funds now!

State and local pension funds – the retirement savings of people like firefighters, teachers and cops, among others – own most of the stock market, and are among the biggest investors in fossil fuels.

No BK Pipeline!

Stop the North Brooklyn Fracked Gas Pipeline & LNG depot

We can't fight climate change unless we fix our food and ag sectors

What are we going to eat under the Green New Deal?

Ok, you’ve heard the hype: The Green New Deal is going to ban hamburgers (it doesn’t); the Green New Deal will force vegan soylant green on the unwilling masses (nope); The Green New Deal doesn’t care about farmers — actually, on that last one, it could do a better job helping farmers, but not because …

Sign now to stop the williams pipeline

There’s no room for the Williams fracked gas pipeline in the Green New Deal

Since the start of this year, I’ve been telling you about the exciting Green New Deal proposed by NY Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I’ve also been straight with you (and members of Congress) about what I see as one of the resolution’s main failings: that it doesn’t explicitly rule out pipelines and fossil fuel infrastructure in …

Green New Deal

Talk about the Green New Deal, not this Senate vote

Let’s get one thing clear about this week’s Senate vote on a Green New Deal: Mitch McConnell is a twerp. The resolution that was voted on this week was not the non-binding Green New Deal resolution introduced by Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), which we’ve talked. a lot. about. That resolution …
