Climate science can be overwhelming. Here’s your easy-to-share highlight reel.
PATHWAY OF PROGRESS

There are multiple scenarios for how quickly we'll reduce global emissions. The one we've chosen isn't nearly ambitious enough to avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change.

A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT

Northern California just experienced intense flooding. Read about how atmospheric rivers played a part and how climate change is making these conveyor belts in the sky more dangerous.

ETERNAL SUFFERING

Climate change will continue to make the world suffer “endlessly” if countries do not amp up emissions pledges.

FASHION FAUX-PAS

Yikes. Western fashion brands have been linked to heavily deforested areas, using wood as fuel for high-end clothes.

OFF THE CHARTS

A series of maps and charts illustrate how we've pushed the climate system to the brink. A handy reference for those following the COP26 proceedings.

FROM RUSSIA WITH GAS

Russian state owned gas giant, Gazprom, attempted to cover up a catastrophic methane leak back in June. Read how they got caught.

LIFE IS PLASTIC, IT’S NOT FANTASTIC

It’s easy to forget that plastics are made using fossil fuels. By 2030, the plastics process could create more pollution than burning coal.


The climate crisis in pictures. Our lens is global.

Indigenous leaders performed an unauthorised healing ceremony in the British Museum to acknowledge centuries of injustice. They are on their way to COP26 in Glasgow, where they will put pressure on leaders to act on climate change.

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

Globally, divestment commitments are set to hit a total of $39.42 trillion! That’s more than the combined annual GDP of the U.S. and China.

THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS (ON CLEAN ENERGY)

NYC has announced that the city’s pensions will divest more than $50 billion from fossil fuels and into renewable energy.

IT NEVER HERTZ TO TRY

As Hertz emerges from bankruptcy, the company announced they will purchase 100,000 Teslas, the single largest order in history of electric vehicles.

PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR EARTH IS

Some billionaires are fleeing to Mars, but at least one wants to fix Earth. Australian billionaire, Mike Cannon-Brookes, is investing $1.5 billion into climate projects.

NO PLACE IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD

Oil and gas wells are making BIPOC communities sick. In a win for environmental justice, they can no longer be built within 3,200 feet of where Californians live, work, and play.

DELIVERZERO

Love takeout but hate the waste? DeliverZero is a new app that allows you to order food that comes in reusable containers.


FOSSIL FUELS BARREL OUT
Gas prices are spiking and some are blaming renewables. But a continued dependence on fossil fuels as the industry becomes economically unstable is the real culprit.
BIG BANKS BAD APPLES
Big banks may be pledging to go green, but they mislead us for profit. JPMorgan, Citigroup, and Bank of America have spent nearly $4 trillion on fossil fuels since 2015.
CLIMATE PROPAGANDA
Major news sources continue to run advertisements for fossil fuel companies. How can the media claim to be honest if they run dishonest ads?
COP26 CHEAT SHEET
With the climate summit COP26 rapidly approaching, here’s your cheat sheet of the terms everyone will be talking about

OIL FOR NOTHIN’
Joe Manchin continues to remind us that his only concern is his coal stocks. His latest demand...keep spending taxpayer cash on fossil fuel subsidies.
PLEDGE TO BE MEDIOCRE
A new U.N. report says most countries' policies and plans to combat climate change are not even close enough to resolve the impact.
SCARED AND UNPREPARED
Nearly 60% of Americans now say the Earth’s warming is very or extremely important to them. So why are lawmakers standing in the way?
THE FIGHT FOR HOME
As wildfires grow in intensity and size, firefighters heroically fight to save people’s homes. But many of them face low-pay and don’t have homes themselves.

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

The. Climate Reality Project recruits, trains, and mobilizes people to become powerful activists, providing the skills, campaigns, and resources to push for aggressive climate action and high-level policies that accelerate a just transition to clean energy.

Change The Chamber is a bipartisan group of students taking on the largest dark money, pro-fossil fuel group in the United States, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
