We love Nobel. We love how its awards celebrate the greatest achievements by, and for, humankind. That’s why the Nobel Foundation should divest itself from fossil fuels.
Climate Denier Cabinet: Call Your Senators (US)
The climate is changing and anyone who denies it should not be in the White House Cabinet. For his cabinet Donald Trump has picked ExxonMobil’s CEO, a state Attorney General who spent most of his life filing lawsuits against the EPA, Texas’ governor, who is on the board of the company building DAPL, and a politician who has been fighting to dig up as much coal, oil and gas from public lands as possible. It’s up to Senators to vote against all of these unqualified climate deniers. Find where your Senators stand on Trump’s Climate Denier Cabinet and give them a call.
Take the Pipeline Pledge
Donald Trump has signed executive actions restarting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and the Dakota Access fracked oil pipeline. We are asking everyone who spoke up, marched or sat-in to stand up and show Trump that our solidarity with frontline leadership is unshakable, and he has severely miscalculated: the opposition will only increase from here. We will oppose every fossil fuel project that violates the science of climate action, the rights of Tribes and the will of the people. Join the Pledge of Pipeline Resistance to be part of the first wave of action to stop Trump’s pipeline plans.
People's Climate Mobilization
New year, new resolve. The People’s Climate Mobilization on April 29th is going to be a major march in Washington, D.C., when we will come together with hundreds of thousands of people to reject Trump’s attack on our communities and climate, and push forward with our vision of a clean energy economy that works for all.
Exxon Killed The Reef
This year, the world witnessed the most devastating mass coral bleaching event ever recorded which left behind dead reefs in at least 38 countries. Many of these reefs will never recover.
The immediate cause is clear: the ongoing rise in global ocean temperatures that comes from climate change. But that’s like saying “he was killed by a bullet.” The important question is: who fired the gun?
It’s time for us to point the finger so that the world knows:
Exxon and their fossil fuel peers killed our reefs, and every day they continue to pollute they are knowingly putting our natural world — and all of us — in further danger.
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.
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.
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.
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.
