Inauguration Day, and the work to come

Today is a hard day. The man about to step into the White House represents a set of values we cannot support. He plans to attack the foundations of truth and justice that the climate movement (and so many of our allied movements) are built on. But his responsibility is to be a leader for... (More...)

Keeping up national pressure on Trump’s nominees:

Last week Rex Tillerson had a very bad day on Capitol Hill. He faced tough questions on ExxonMobil’s climate record and human rights abuses, then effectively pled the 5th when questioned about Exxon’s climate cover-up. Tillerson’s nomination is weakening because people are standing up and demanding Senators ask tough questions. This week EPA nominee Scott... (More...)

Thousands Protest Against Trump’s Climate Denier Cabinet

Yesterday people across the United States rallied at their Senators’ offices to tell them to oppose the fossil fuel industry puppets that Donald Trump nominated for his cabinet.

January is going to be a (busy) month of resistance

The climate movement is getting ready for a big January of bold action to defeat Donald Trump’s dangerous fossil fuel agenda. He wants to put Big Oil in charge of our government, roll back decades of climate progress, and witch hunt climate scientists out of their posts. He’s also preparing unprecedented attacks on civil liberties,... (More...)

Resist Trump's Climate Agenda

A majority of people in America did not vote for Donald Trump. The people that worked and voted against him are more likely to be younger and part of vulnerable communities who will together bear the biggest impacts of climate change and his vicious agenda across the board. Together we can make sure that this majority is visible, fired up, and impossible to ignore — from taking to the streets in all 50 states to turning Cabinet confirmations into public hearings on climate denial and deception.

Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline

The Dakota Access Pipeline must be stopped. This pipeline would carry toxic fracked oil from North Dakota across four states, and under the Missouri River immediately upstream from the Standing Rock Sioux Nation. That makes it a threat to the sacred land and water of native communities and a disaster for the climate. President Obama could step in any time and say “no” to this whole thing, like he did for Keystone XL.

Zero Offshore Drilling

The Obama Administration just released the latest draft of their offshore drilling plan. Thanks to grassroots pressure, the plan no longer includes an expansion of drilling off the Atlantic seaboard, as had been expected. That’s a win for people power — but a partial one. The current version of this plan still allows drilling in the Arctic and off the Gulf Coast. And that’s still unacceptable. We’re calling on President Obama to say no to all new offshore drilling. That includes zero new drilling in the Arctic and zero new drilling off the Gulf Coast.

#ExxonKnew

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.

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.

Fossil Free

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.
