Recent reports have shown that Exxon may have known about the threat of climate change decades ago. Yet over the course of nearly forty years, the company has contributed millions of dollars to think-tanks and politicians that have done their best to spread doubt and misinformation — first on the existence of climate change, then the extent of the problem, and now its cause. If Exxon intentionally misled the public about climate change and fossil fuels, then they should be held accountable. We’re calling for an immediate investigation.
Divest for Paris
The divestment movement is challenging institutions, individuals and governments to show climate leadership and align their investments with their values by divesting from fossil fuels ahead of the COP21 Climate Summit in Paris.
Change Canada's Climate Politics
It’s election season in Canada. For months, politicians will trade blows, pundits will talk themselves hoarse and at the end of it, Canada might have a new Prime Minister just weeks ahead of the next round of United Nations climate talks in Paris.
We need to do more than just try to make climate change a talked about election issue. We need to use this election to change climate politics in Canada, and we need to do it within a broken system. We need to think outside the box to meet the climate crisis with an appropriately ambitious response.
With a collapsed price of oil, a summer of historic wildfires and a media that finally seems be ready to talk about climate change, we have a perfect recipe for climate to be front and center during the Canadian election. Yet, while emissions and temperatures are rising, the ambition of Canada’s political parties isn’t.
It’s up to us to change that.
The Road Through Paris
2015 is on track to be the hottest year in recorded history, and this December hundreds of world governments will meet in Paris to try to strike a global climate agreement. It will be the biggest gathering of its kind since 2009, and it’s potentially a big deal for our global movement. This could be a turning point for the planet— if we push for it.
The Rhineland’s lignite mines and coal plants are Europe’s biggest source of CO2 emissions and home to the world’s largest coal diggers – the Bagger 288.
Ende Gelände will make a powerful call to keep Europe’s coal in the ground, in the face of increasingly dangerous climate change.
Here, and no further. Together we will draw a line in the coalfields.
Stop the TPP!
The Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement — a trade deal being negotiated between dozens of countries — is the fossil fuel industry’s latest tool to shut down climate action, and we’re joining a huge coalition to stop it.
The TPP would give foreign fossil fuel corporations the right to sue city, state and national governments if climate action hurts their profits. It’s an enormous corporate power grab and it threatens to undermine climate progress around the world.
Divest the Vatican
With the ear of 1.2 billion Catholics and the respect of Christians and non-Christians alike, Pope Francis is uniquely positioned to add both his voice and the unique moral power of his office to the divestment movement. The tide is turning. Now it’s time to divest the Vatican.
Stop(ped) the Keystone XL Pipeline
We’re joining with organizations and communities throughout North America in a united campaign to stop the Keystone XL pipeline — the fuse to the largest carbon bomb on the planet.
The Fossil Free campaign is building a global movement to divest from fossil fuels. If it’s wrong to wreck the climate, it’s wrong to profit from that wreckage.
Global Power Shift
Global Power Shift is the starting point for a new phase in the international climate movement. First, hundreds of climate leaders from around the world gathered in Istanbul to share stories, learn skills, and sharpen strategies. These leaders have now returned to their home countries to spark a wave of convergences, campaigns, and mobilisations for climate action.
Start a Climate Petition
350 Campaigns is an open platform available to anyone and everyone who wants to do their part to solve the climate crisis. Taking on global warming is a HUGE task, so we need people working all over the world on lots of different campaigns to make it happen. 350 Campaigns lets you start a climate petition campaign wherever you are.
