NEWSLETTER & ACTION TOOLKIT


COUNTDOWN TO EPA RESPONSE
While the Supreme Court may have hampered the EPA's ability to fight climate change under one law, there are other laws at its disposal. SIGN THIS PETITION telling the EPA to use its full authority under the Toxic Substances Control Act to declare greenhouse gases an unreasonable risk to human health and the environment. Seems obvious!
STOP MVP
There’s a pipeline destroying Appalachian forest, and the corporations behind it want a four year extension! SIGN THE PETITION to tell FERC enough is enough with the Mountain Valley Pipeline.
DROP THE CHARGES
Water protectors in Minnesota are facing trumped up legal charges and prison time for trying to protect the land from a pipeline. CALL GOVERNOR WALZ of Minnesota to appoint Attorney General Ellison as a special prosecutor to defend those who looked to #StopLine3.
STOP GETTING CAPTURED
Fossil fuel corporations claim they can keep burning coal, oil and gas because they'll be able to just capture the carbon emissions. In reality, the technology they've developed has failed over and over, and is mostly used to produce more oil. Carbon capture is a dangerous distraction. TELL THE WHITE HOUSE that we want real climate solutions, not more fossil fuel scams!
BUILD BACK … SOMETHING
Congress is trying to jumpstart a clean energy future with a package of tax credits, the remains of the Build Back Better plan killed by Sen. Joe Manchin. But they only have until the end of the month. TELL CONGRESS to seal the #AmericanEnergyDeal!
CLIMATE ANGER MANAGEMENT
We get it, it’s easy to feel frustrated or angry when learning about the climate crisis. While you could just scream into a pillow, that doesn't do enough to change things. Instead, channel those feelings into THESE SUGGESTED ACTIONS and make a difference.
CLEAN IT UP
Picking up trash now has a competitive element. The Clean Earth Challenge wants you to measure your impact and see how much trash you can collect, aiming for 1 million pieces polluting nature.

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

It’s not all about profits. A new UN report emphasizes how important nature is for humans beyond just material ends, supporting all of us in staying alive.

SHARING SOLAR

Have you always wanted solar panels but aren’t able to get them yourself? Don’t get too heated! Community solar could be your answer! See why.

TICK, TICK, BOOM

As if ticks with Lyme disease weren’t scary enough, now there’s a new lethal tick virus that is even worse. And the climate crisis is spreading it.


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

The Biden administration announced it will allocate $40 million toward weatherizing and electrifying low-income communities, who are often the most vulnerable to climate change.

WASTESHARK WEEK

A new robotic invention inspired by a whale shark, called “WasteSharks,” collects plastic and returns it to land before it ends up in our ocean.

#LANDBACK. LITERALLY

New York is returning over one thousand acres of land back to the Onondaga Nation, who will use Indigenous knowledge to restore the region and its natural ecosystems.

THE LAST STRAW

India is saying goodbye to single use plastics. A new law bans everything from straws and plastic utensils all the way to cigarettes and food packaging. For the second largest country in the world, this is a huge win!

MOO-OVE OVER MEAT, PLANT-BASED IS IN

What’s the best climate investment we can make? It may not be wind turbines or solar panels. See the new idea that’s sure to be an udder success.

MONEY DOES GROW ON TREES

Why are we tossing trees into the trash?! Trees in urban areas are often sent to landfills even though the wood is still harvestable. Reforestation hubs are saving these trees and planting new ones in the meantime.

HOT IN HELSINKI

Solar, wind, and … sand? Finland has figured out how to heat homes in the winter with hot sand from the summer. And it’s the first invention of its kind.

NOT JUST ANY TRANSITION

To transition our energy system, we must ensure fossil fuel workers are supported in what is often referred to as a ‘just transition.’ But what does that really look like?

FORGET STRAW, STICKS, AND BRICK…

Concrete contributes a surprising amount of global greenhouse gas emissions, but what if there is a better way to build? Looking to the past may just be the key to the future.

THIS PIPELINE LEAKS BAD IDEAS

When pipeline companies run out of options, the only thing left is dirty tricks. These companies are now trying to rebrand natural gas as ‘clean energy’, but is it working?

THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST CLIMATE

The recent Supreme Court decision to limit the power of the EPA to regulate emissions didn’t happen by chance. See the plan that has been 50 years in the making and learn what may be soon to come.

A "TURF" DECISION

Lawns are bad for the environment and require water and fertilizer to be maintained. So some people are ditching them, but for synthetic turf instead. Is this really better?

BAD MOVE, BRUSSELS

According to new regulations in the European Union, natural gas and nuclear energy are considered sustainable sources of energy. Nuclear is debatable, but there’s nothing sustainable about fossil gas.

LIKE TOBACCO FOR OIL

Sharon Eubanks led a corporate accountability suit which proved that the tobacco industry knew its products were harmful. Now she says the oil industry is no different, and should be the next to be held accountable.

FIVE PERCENT IS NOT AS SMALL AS IT SEEMS
