THE CLIMATE MOVEMENT
NEWSLETTER & ACTION TOOLKIT


MOVE OVER, MANCHIN
Senator Joe Manchin may now support a climate bill, but he also owns a coal company while acting as chairman of the very committee that oversees the coal industry. How is this not a conflict of interest!? IT’S PAST TIME to take Manchin’s chair away
IT’S AN EMERGENCY
Now is the moment to push hard for Biden to use his full executive authority to take on the climate crisis and protect communities on the frontlines of fossil fuel destruction. Send a message to the White House and tell President Biden to declare a climate emergency and stop approvals for fossil fuel leases, exports, and infrastructure! SIGN THE PETITION.
NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION
Tuesday, August 2nd, join a national day of action to demand that Biden declare a climate emergency and reject fossil fuel projects. Actions can be big or small; our power comes from taking action together and being visible! You can host one by yourself, with a group or organization, or join one happening nearby!
WORK FOR CLIMATE
One of the best places to work towards climate action may be via your job. WorkForClimate provides tips, tricks, and actions for employees who want to make a difference — from where a 401k invests to where it sources its products. TAKE THE QUIZ to find out what you can do from where you work.
DON’T BANK ON IT
It’s clear our infrastructure cannot handle the stresses of the climate crisis, from melting airport runways to buckled train tracks and frozen energy grids. Yet major banks are doubling down on fossil fuel funding. Why? Send a message to their leadership and TELL THEM TO QUIT.
OCCUPY EDUCATION
Climate movement youth all over the world want an end to the fossil fuel economy. They're planning to occupy schools and universities between September and December 2022. READ MORE OF THE PLAN here and find out how you can get involved!

SUNNY NOT ALWAYS FUNNY— A British morning show host tries to keep things light while meteorologist John Hammond spouts the cold hard facts of climate change. It’s eerily similar to the famous “Don’t Look Up” scene. (GBNews)

Climate science can be overwhelming. Here’s your easy-to-share highlight reel.
RAIN, RAIN, WON’T GO AWAY

Extreme rain and flooding is set to rise across the globe and most countries aren’t prepared. The United States is slowly planning ways to stay ahead of the storm, but is anyone moving fast enough?

HE’S HEATING UP

The Biden administration has launched a ground breaking tool full of resources that allow you to keep track of heat waves while learning what to do to stay cool.

FOLLOW THE EMISSIONS

The old saying “you can only manage what you can measure” applies to the fight against climate change. Climate TRACE uses tech straight out of the future to track global emissions and bring new meaning to the word ‘accountability.’

PERPLEXED BY PENGUINS

Did you know penguins used to hang out on tropical beaches? Somehow they migrated to cold climates and scientists believe that shift could hold the answers to a climate changed future.

LEAKY BUSINESS

Hydrogen has been held as a key for a renewable future but research shows that including it in fossil gas pipelines could increase the risk of dangerous leaks.

DREADING DRYNESS

The world’s wettest places are quickly going dry. An area twice the size of the U.S. could soon become a desert. Read where things are heating up so fast.

FIGHTING FIRE WITH FIRE

Nearly 20 percent of sequoia trees have been killed by wildfires in less than a decade. Now scientists think they have a solution, but to get it done, they’ll have to fight fire with fire.

IN MEMORIAM

James Lovelock, the British environmental scientist who is known for his influential Gaia theory, or the idea that the Earth is one living organism, has passed. Yet his legacy lives on.


Here’s what it looks like when people show up, voices ring loud and leaders act for the sake of the planet.
SOLAR DELAWARE!

Solar panels are wonderful… if you have the money for them. Now Delaware is making rooftop solar accessible to low and moderate income residents with a new pilot program, helping with energy burden.

KEEPING IT REAL

Meteorologists are finally speaking up about climate! In order to raise awareness about the issue, forecasters are making the connection between extreme weather events that are caused by climate change.

TWICE IS NICE

Fast fashion may have met its match. The secondhand clothing market is expected to triple over the next decade, faster than regular retail.

PRIME PLUG

The EV revolution has reached Amazon. Thousands of delivery vehicles are now ready to be deployed, and could change how we do deliveries forever.

WHO WOOD HAVE THOUGHT?

A battery made from… wood? Apparently, trees contain one of the largest renewable sources of carbon anywhere, and the Scandinavians are exploring the possibilities.

PORSCHE’S PROFITS

This year, Porsche predicts that its electric vehicles will produce more profit than its gas-powered ones. Are EVs the next hot luxury car?

CLIMATE DEAL

After weeks of negotiation, Manchin says he's agreed to support the biggest climate bill ever considered by Congress. We still don’t know all the details, but there’s little doubt — this is huge.

NOT WASTED

Storm-induced flooding increases the chances of toxic waste flowing into communities. A newly reinstated ‘polluter pays’ tax offers a welcome boost to revenue for cleaning up toxic sites, at the cost of the polluter.

LIES LIKE WILDFIRE

Now most everyone can see that the climate crisis is happening. But what took them so long? See how decades of Big Oil's propaganda held back progress and how we're feeling the repercussions today.

OUT OF THE MATRIX

An industry consulting firm, known as Matrix, is doing everything in their power to influence politics and create obstacles to adopting renewables in Florida, Alabama and at least six other states.

THE BARBADOS REBELLION

Caribbean nations are facing a looming climate catastrophe but global banks are holding them back from progress. Mia Mottley, the prime minister of Barbados, is trying to find a way to power ahead before it’s too late.

BUREAUCRATIC DEFICIENCY

At a time when many Americans are facing the health effects of drought, heatwaves, and wildfires, Congress leaves Biden’s Office of Climate Change and Health Equity within the Health and Human Services Department completely unfunded.

NOPE

“You wanna take mine or yours,” Kylie Jenner said in an Instagram post with Travis Scott, as they stood between two private jets. As minutes-long flights across town become more popular with the mega-rich, jet-tracking accounts fight back.

THIRD ACT

Climate activism isn’t just for the youth. Citing organizing experience, unprecedented wealth and concern for their grandchildren, baby boomers are mobilizing around climate change.

KARACHI UNDERWATER

Pakistan is no stranger to monsoons, but this year, rainfall has increased nearly 90 percent over the annual average. While infrastructure fails and people drown, citizens are demanding the government take action.

TIRED OF SUV’S

Is there a right way to do activism? Tyre Extinguishers in NYC are deflating gas-guzzler’s tires to keep them off the road and educate about the rise in car-related carbon emissions.

UNITED KINGDOM OF HEAT

Protesters throughout the U.K. are heated up and demanding climate action after last week’s soaring temperatures. With paralyzed infrastructure and a lack of A.C., British activists have taken to the streets.
