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 …

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 …

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.

Tell the USACE No More Sacrifice Zones!

Tell the Army Corps of Engineers to Defend the Gulf!

For far too long the Gulf of Mexico has been a sacrifice zone to fossil fuels. Communities on the Gulf coast face some of the highest rates of pollution, poverty, and extraction – and are also hit year after year by climate fueled super storms. The Gulf was the first place that President Biden sold …

No new Federal Fossil Fuels rally at COP26

Tell Biden: Keep your promise. Stop the Gulf lease sale!

President Biden and his Interior Department need to act fast to cancel next week’s Gulf lease sale – known as sale 257. Despite promising climate action, Biden’s Department of Interior is scheduled to sell more than 80 million acres of the Gulf for oil and gas drilling and fracking. To add insult to this grave injury …
