Being Present in this Moment: Climate Justice and Collective Dignity

The recent upheavals and very intense expressions of violence and racism deserve a response commensurate with the seriousness and complexity of the moment.   Here at 350.org, we’re reflecting on how these atrocities in the United States are taking place against the backdrop of tragedies and killings around the world. We’ve watched in horror at... (More...)

What the World Humanitarian Summit means for Climate Change

As 350.org’s Climate Impacts Coordinator, I joined about 9000 other delegates from around the world  for the first ever World Humanitarian Summit from May 23-24th. While 350.org doesn’t provide humanitarian aid, we’re increasingly concerned with just how hard climate change is biting, and committed to supporting people-oriented responses to the impacts of climate change.

Keep it in the ground! Just how much exactly?

Pretty much every government on the planet committed in Paris last year to hold global temperature rise ‘well below 2 °C’, aiming for 1.5 °C. We already know that there is a massive gap between these goals and governments’ actual plans for action. But what would need to happen to meet these goals and avoid... (More...)

Why We Need to Keep 80% of Fossil Fuels in the Ground

Reposted from Yes! Magazine  Join the Movement. It’s Time to Break Free from Fossil Fuels. By Bill McKibben Physics can impose a bracing clarity on the normally murky world of politics. It can make things simple. Not easy, but simple. Most of the time, public policy is a series of trade-offs: higher taxes or fewer... (More...)
Global Keep It In The Ground

2015 broke records. Let’s break our own in 2016.

2015 was the hottest year ever — but it was also a historic year for the global climate movement. Last year, we saw extreme weather reach new levels and impact millions of lives. We enter 2016 with deep concern. The window to act and prevent catastrophic climate change is shrinking. Yet there is hope. In... (More...)

El Niño: State of Emergency

Intensified by climate change, this El Niño is exceeding previous records and it is on track to unleashing severe and destructive extreme weather in the coming months. “This El Niño is playing out in uncharted territory. Our planet has altered dramatically because of climate change.” — Michel Jarraud, Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization  ... (More...)

Break Free from Fossil Fuels

World governments have agreed to global action — but without a clear commitment on how and when they will transition off of fossil fuels. The way to make that transition a reality is by organizing to keep coal, oil and gas in the ground and accelerate the just transition to 100% renewable energy. It’s time to break free from fossil fuels, and it’s up to the people to make it happen. Break Free will be a series of major coordinated actions around the globe that will take on the world’s biggest fossil fuel projects and companies.

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.

The Road Through Paris

On December 12th, 2015, world governments meeting in Paris produced a landmark climate agreement. The deal followed two weeks of intense negotiations and waves of global mobilization by the climate movement. While there’s so much this deal leaves undone and so much work still to do, the Paris Agreement does finally send a signal to the world that the age of fossil fuels is over. Now it’s up to us to close the gap between rhetoric and reality. We’re ready.

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.

Join us for Global Divestment Day on February 13 and 14 and together, let’s make fossil fuels history.

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.

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.
