Your weekly backstage pass to go inside the climate movement and hear what the leaders of the movement are thinking and doing.

You might know ADAM MET from the band AJR, but did you know he's a huge climate activist? Learn about why Adam thinks education is key, and why the pandemic has revealed that climate is connected to everything.

ELEVEN MADISON PARK GOES MEATLESS

Eleven Madison Park has been called the best restaurant in the world. And it just made a huge statement.

HAWAII DECLARES A CLIMATE EMERGENCY

The happiest state in the U.S. is looking to keep it that way. After dealing with extreme rain and flooding, Hawaii is the first state in the U.S. to declare a climate emergency.

GERMANY TOUGHENS UP

Putting off climate action isn’t just wrong. In Germany, it’s now unconstitutional. The supreme court ruled the government must protect the rights of future generations.

METHANE/METHOUT

Methane is a super polluter. Obama tried to curtail it. Trump freed it. Now Biden is trying to solve the problem once and for all.

CORAL > COAL

Huge win! After a lot of work and endless pressure from climate activists, Liberty Mutual is withdrawing its support of a proposed new giant new coal mine. Congrats to all who fought the good fight!


The climate crisis in pictures. Our lens is global.

Can't get over this image from a central bank protest today in Germany at the Bundesbank (yes a protest at a central bank).

Today is Red Dress Day. It is a day when we honour missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls & gender diverse people

In the depths of the ocean off the northwest Australian coast lie vast, mysterious ecosystems. Until recently, they were completely undocumented.

BATTERY IN A ROCK — If we want to drive into a future full of EVs we are going to need a lot of batteries. Fortunately, there’s a way to make those batteries without mining the Earth. See how. (The YEARS Project)

BIG OIL'S BIG LIE — 40 years ago, Bil Oil’s own scientists knew that their products would cause climate change. Now Big Oil says it’s your fault. Make them pay instead. (Center for Climate Integrity)

THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE WATER — Actor Elliot Page investigates the root of environmental racism in his Canadian homeland. (Elliot Page)

Climate science can be overwhelming. Here’s your easy-to-share highlight reel.
RESURRECTION TO THE RESCUE

You may not know what a sunflower sea star is. It almost went extinct. But this rare little animal is helping kelp forests sequester carbon and protect our oceans.

CLIMATE CHANGE AND EXTREME POVERTY

Climate change will make it harder to bring the world’s citizens out of poverty. The World Bank just estimated 132 million more people will be living on just $1.90 per day by 2030.

THWAITES WON’T WAIT

It’s known as the “Doomsday Glacier” because when it melts, it may take us all with it. The bad news? It’s already melting way faster than expected.

CLEAN ENERGY ISLAND

No, that’s not a scene from The Avengers. It’s a real island that Denmark is building which will store enough clean energy to power all of New England on a spring afternoon.

WIPING OUT OUR FOOD SUPPLY … PRICELESS

Big banks are ignoring one of the most dangerous impacts of climate: extreme weather destabilizing our food supply.

HEY SIRI, WHAT’S ECO-FACISM?
What do you do when you can’t take responsibility? Blame immigrants, apparently. Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is blaming immigrants for pollution rather than the Big Oil corporations he frequently goes to bat for.
THE FAKE MEAT CRITIQUE
Will high-tech meat substitutes solve the underlying issues driving the climate crisis? Journalist and food activist Mark Bittman says no.
THAT’S A SECRET I’LL NEVER TELL. XOXO BIG OIL CO.
Who is funding the dangerous Trans Mountain Oil Pipeline? That’s a question the Canadian government doesn’t want you to know and they’re going to great lengths to keep it that way.
A TICKING TIME BOMB
An oil tanker holding four times as much oil as Exxon Valdez is being held for ransom near Yemen, but there aren’t any buyers. Now it’s at risk for spilling and its devastation could affect tens of millions.
COME ON, CUOMO
Two years after passing a landmark climate law, New York has no plan to fund it. Governor Cuomo just approved the largest budget in New York history — and it has virtually no new funding to help meet the state's emissions goals.
BIG SKY, BAD LAWS
If the grizzlies don’t get you, the pipeline laws will. Montana just became the most dangerous state to protest Big Oil.
FOR F-SAKE, FACEBOOK
See a lot of climate misinformation on your Facebook feed? That’s because Facebook lets 25% of all climate misinfo posts through to you, your grandma and your Fox News-powered uncle.

Every week we highlight three climate campaigns having real impact. There are many more than 3, see many of them here.
