FOLLOW THE MONEY
America’s most powerful bank regulator is ignoring climate change, allowing U.S. banks to invest more than $4.6 trillion into fossil fuels since the Paris Agreement. DEMAND THE FED release strong guidance that won't allow big banks to make climate change worse.
CHUBB HUBBUB
Insurance companies make a killing off insuring oil and gas drilling, and Chubb is one of the biggest insurers. CALL CHUBB’S EXECUTIVES and tell them to stop protecting the fossil fuel industry and putting our planet in peril.
CLEAN UP THE TAILPIPES
One of the largest sources of air and climate pollution is from transportation. Yet the EPA is dragging its feet on cleaning up vehicles. TELL THE EPA ADMINISTRATOR to fast track its approval of strong clean car and truck standards to protect our health and the climate!
PROTECT THE PEOPLE
Natives in Ecuador's biodiverse Yasuní National Park have chosen to live in isolation from the world, but oil and timber interests want to encroach on their territory. SIGN THIS PETITION to demand that the wishes of these Indigenous people be respected!
NO QUID PRO QUO
The Inflation Reduction Act made renewable energy development on public lands contingent on fossil fuel production there. TELL THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION to STOP oil and gas lease sales on public lands now.

Climate science can be overwhelming. Here’s your easy-to-share highlight reel.
COP27 EXPLAINED

Do you ever struggle to grasp what COP27 is and its purpose? Learn everything you need to know about the “Conference of the Parties” here.

2 BIRDS 1 STONE

French farmers are implementing forward-thinking solutions: covering crops with solar panels to produce food and energy at the same time.

FROZEN IN TIME

Archaeologists have long-known that melting glaciers could reveal ancient relics hidden beneath the ice. But temperatures in the Alps are warming so fast they are struggling to keep up.

POLLUTING ELITE

A new study shows that the top 1% of earners in the U.K. pollute the same amount of CO2 in a year as the bottom 10% do in 20 years.

HOT AND EXPENSIVE

Researchers set out to find out how much the world spent since the 1990s to compensate for rising temperatures. The cost? Trillions, and is only expected to grow, along with temperatures!

ANAEROBIC NON-SOLUTIONS

The Inflation Reduction Act is pushing for more biogas, but will it actually help the climate?

AN UNLIKELY ALLIANCE

Scientists mounted cameras on sharks to give them a new set of eyes underwater. The sharks led to something no one had known about — a vast forest of seagrass the size of Maine, a massive carbon sink in the Atlantic.

VISUALIZING DISADVANTAGE

New technology allows scientists to visualize which communities are struggling the most due to climate change. See how it could help allocate our assets in the future.


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

Brazilian voters have ousted their climate-killing president, Jair Bolsonaro, in favor of Lula de Silva. Lula is a long-time defender of the Amazon Rainforest and protecting the Indigenous Peoples who live within. A win for Lula is a win for the trees.

COOL IT

President Biden has formalized an agreement restricting Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), a major greenhouse gas contributor, used mostly in refrigerants and cooling appliances.

E-WASTE NOT WASTED

Electronic waste is one of the most difficult types of trash to dispose of, but a Nigerian-based company, Quadloop, has a plan to convert it into solar-powered lanterns.

FIGHTING A CLEAN FIGHT

The war in Ukraine has created a global shortage of natural gas, but the conflict is actually expected to speed up, not slow down, the transition to fossil fuels.

ARE WE THERE YET?

The International Energy Agency anticipates carbon emissions from energy will peak in 2025, and then decline.

MAGIC SCHOOL BUS

The Biden administration dedicated $1 billion towards electrifying school buses. This will reduce climate pollution and protect children from toxic chemicals.

EU’S EV FUTURE

EU negotiators reached a landmark deal to phase out the sale of gasoline-powered cars by 2035. They agreed automakers must achieve a 100 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from new cars sold.

PERCEIVED PROGRESS

Fossil fuel corporations have found a loophole to lowering their carbon footprint without actually helping the planet in any way: selling off assets to private equity firms.

PIPELINE PRESSURE

Activists have been fighting the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) for several years already, claiming untold climate impacts and ecological devastation. A recent study proves they’re right, and the environmental assessments used to approve the project failed to follow the rules.

STOP WAR PROFITEERING

President Biden has threatened a windfall profit tax for oil and gas companies if they don’t utilize record profits to lower gas prices for consumers.

PAY FOR THE PAST

Youth in Hawaii are suing the state government for violating their constitutional right to a clean and healthful environment. Yet rather than writing the lawsuit as something that has yet to unfold (as others have done), this one cites the harm already done.

FAST FURNITURE

Cheap furniture doesn’t just ignore the full-life cycle cost of production, it also falls apart easily and then goes in the garbage. Is fast-furniture now furnishing American landfills?

COLORADO RIVER CUTS

The Interior Department has signaled it might reduce the amount of water released from the Hoover and Glen Canyon dams over the next couple years as the Colorado River faces epic drought conditions and reservoirs dry up.

1 DEATH EVERY 2 DAYS

Defending the environment can be life-threatening. A new report reveals more than 1,700 people have been murdered in the past decade because of their environmental activism.

GOOD COP BAD COP

President Biden will attend this year’s COP27 on the African continent to discuss climate change. Yet, the U.S continues to pour billions of dollars into fossil fuel projects in Africa, despite its commitments to reduce global emissions.

HELP US OUT

When gas prices spike many American families struggle to fill their tanks. But what if the U.S. didn't export so much overseas? A new bill would ban gas exports when prices soar, lowering the price for Americans at home.

UNSUSTAINABLE GREENWASHING

HSBC says it wants to lead the transition to a more sustainable world; all while funding mines, pipelines and oil rigs. Learn how sustainability-linked bonds allow companies like HSBC to appear green, but continue polluting.
