• Get polluters out of politics : Anne McEwen
    Despite more than two decades of talking, our climate is at a crisis point because our leaders have allowed themselves to be captured by the fossil fuel industry. Since the last elections the fossil fuel industry have donated more than $3.7m to the major political parties. In exchange, Governments have forked out more than $7.7bn in taxpayer subsidies to the industry -- more than our total foreign aid budget. That equals a return on investment for the fossil fuel lobby of more than $2000 for every $1 they donated. If our politicians are serious about climate change, then they need to stop taking money from and giving money to the big polluters. That's why we are calling on politicians on all sides of the aisle to stand up and sign the Pollution Free Politics Pledge.

  • US Bank: Fund Solutions, Not Pollution
    Dear U.S. Bank, You’re breaking my heart. You use my money to support the dirty energy companies that threaten our water, climate, indigenous rights and the health of our communities. You are jeopardizing our children’s future. U.S. Bank, I need a relationship based on trust. You claim you care about climate change, but I found out you got together with Wells Fargo, and provided $22 billion dollars in financing to the oil and gas industry over the last 3 years. U.S. Bank, I've had enough, it's over between us! I am moving on to a bank that has begun divesting from fossil fuels. Sincerely, (Your Name) Sign and share to pledge to attend a Move Your Money action at a U.S. Bank near you! For more information about which banks have begun to divest from fossil fuels, see "The End of Coal" report at http://bit.ly/1OBvhPt To find a community bank or credit union near you, visit http://www.icba.org/ or http://www.asmarterchoice.org/

  • ExxonMobil: Do the right thing! Act now to help achieve a climate treaty in Paris 2015!
    Achieving a climate treaty this December depends on whether enough assistance will be offered to the countries that will suffer most from the consequences of climate change. Developed countries pledged in 2009 to arrange financing of $100bn per year by 2020, but according to an analysis by the World Resources Institute published in October, 2015, $14 billion per year is now lacking. A recent study shows that 90 companies caused 63% of total industrial carbon dioxide and methane emissions since 1854 (half of which dates to 1986), and traces 18.7% of total emissions to seven companies including ExxonMobil (Climatic Change, January, 2014). Among these seven, ExxonMobil stands out because of its climate-change misinformation campaign and other efforts to impede establishment of emissions-reducing laws and policies. Former Exxon CEO Lee R. Raymond said in 1997 that "the most pressing environmental problems of the developing nations are related to poverty, not global climate change." The two problems are now closely related. As Oxfam states on its website, climate change hits poor communities hardest, despite the fact that "the carbon footprint of the world’s one billion poorest people represents just 3 percent of the global total." If current CEO Rex Tillerson agrees with Raymond about poverty or agrees with Ken Cohen, his company's spokesperson (who has more than once written on the company's website that "the risks of climate change are real and the risks warrant action"), then he should quickly do everything he can to ensure achievement of a climate treaty.
