NEWSLETTER & ACTION TOOLKIT


TIME’S UP TOYOTA
Toyota is known for their iconic green vehicle, the Prius, and could have led the electric revolution. Instead they have refused to follow their competitors and commit to making their fleets all electric. SIGN THE PETITION to tell Toyota it’s time to put their pedal to the electric metal.
PAY UP, POLLUTERS
Polluters shouldn’t get a free pass. Especially not when the burden of their emissions is put onto the poor through climate impacts. MAKE POLLUTERS PAY for the damage they’ve caused.
IT’S NOT ABOUT THE TURKEY
If you celebrate the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, one of the most important actions you can take is to acknowledge the Indigenous land you are living on. USE THIS MAP to learn who you really need to thank this holiday.
FAX OFF, VANGUARD!
Asset manager Vanguard isn’t just out of touch on responsibility to the environment, they even still use fax machines. JAM THEIR MACHINE with your demand that they pull out of fossil fuel investments and protect Indigenous people in the Amazon.
FRACK NO
The Greater Chaco region of the Navajo nation is at risk from permits approved by the Trump administration and upheld by Biden’s. SEND A MESSAGE to the Bureau of Land Management to stop illegal fracking and drilling on Native land.
UGH, AIG!
No fossil fuel project can survive without insurance, and AIG is keeping too many of them alive. DEMAND AIG stop insuring fossil fuels and insure our future instead!
A GREEN WAVE
Even with a pro-climate majority in the Senate, people like Joe Manchin in the mix make it clear that every vote counts. Georgia’s runoff senate election is critical. MAKE CALLS to Georgia voters so they know exactly what is at stake.
LNG IS NOT SAFE
Explosions and accidents at LNG export facilities have long been ignored by the federal government. TELL PHMSA AND FERC to step up and update regulations that would ensure the safety of communities across the Gulf Coast!

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

In the largest deal of its kind, the U.S. and allies just signed a $20 billion deal to wean Indonesia off coal and towards renewables. Read how it came together.

TROPICAL TRIUMVIRATE

Brazil, Indonesia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo have come together to create a plan to protect more than half of the world’s tropical rainforests. But for the plan to work, they’ll need funding. See the details here.

DIRE DELIVERY

Some of the world’s richest countries are going to finally help developing nations hit hardest by climate change. See who's stacking up.

IT’S FREE REAL ESTATE

Large parking lots don’t have to be a waste of space. France is now requiring all large lots to be covered in solar panels. It’s an obvious idea, so why isn’t everyone doing it?

A TREE GROWS IN NEPAL

Is large-scale reforestation even possible? Nepal is proving to the world that saving forests is not only easier than we think, but could have long lasting positive effects. Read how they are doing it here.

ISN’T IT IONIC

Your old electronics could soon have a second life as an EV battery. Read how your e-junk could soon power the transition to a low-carbon future.


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

Adaptation to a warming climate has been touted as the answer, but the science says we cannot outrun the harmful impacts of a warming planet. So what’s next?

ALL DRIED UP

The climate crisis is wreaking havoc on farming around the globe, and if we don’t figure out a solution soon we’re set to face at least a 10% crop loss by 2050. Can anything be done?

WILDFIRE ALERT

Could an affordable sensor be the difference between a small wildfire and a catastrophic one? This company has the answer. See what they came up with.

THE FUTURE OF FARMING

Farming takes up a lot of space, but a new method of growing wheat indoors could offer a solution to both land use problems and food insecurity.

WIND TO CARRY ME

Can a microgrid using a building as a sail survive hurricane winds? Turns out, it can! And it’s already survived two hurricanes and offsetting 100% of the building’s power consumption.

(SEE)TREES

A California-based NGO has created a data service that will help monitor tree status in certain areas. See how CTrees will allow countries to use this data to limit deforestation.

I WOOD NEVER HAVE GUESSED…

Goodbye plastic, hello wood? A recently discovered chemical modification may be able to create transparent wood, opening up a world of plastic alternatives.

THE BISON IS BACK

After nearly being hunted to extinction, the American Bison is making a triumphant return. These animals provided for countless Indigenous tribes over centuries, but their return has created some logistical problems in the West.

HOT TOPIC

The goal for nearly 200 nations has been to limit global warming to 1.5ºC, but many scientists believe that we're going to overshoot it. So why are we still talking about it as if we won't?

GREEN WAVE, NOT RED

Control of the U.S. Congress will now be split, making new federal climate legislation highly unlikely. But in many states, pro-climate politicians were able to gain full control, changing the calculus of what's possible. Read what's in store.

NOPEC

OPEC has been incredibly successful in monopolizing oil prices and squeezing whatever they can out of oil consuming nations, but a new bill could change that. See what NOPEC has to offer.

COP-ORATIONS

COP27 is meant to be a place where real action happens, but when some of the world’s largest polluters sponsor the event it makes it hard to take seriously. Read just who is covering COP27 with their logos.

REIGNING IN METHANE

The EPA is proposing new rules to limit methane emissions from the oil and gas industry. These include a program to identify and report ‘super emitter’ leaks that companies would be forced to investigate and fix.

FATAL FLOWERS

The commercial flower industry is a huge carbon emitter, so with the holiday season approaching, maybe it’s time to find a new way to celebrate.

TWITTER TAKEOVER

After Elon Musk acquired Twitter and fired thousands of staff (including content moderators), the top result when you type in ‘Climate’ is ‘ClimateScam’. Climate disinformation is thriving at a time when we need everyone on the same page.

LATINOS UNIDOS

Latin American leaders from across the political spectrum are uniting at COP27 — out of shared interests in both natural resources and their citizens living on the front lines of climate change.

MAD MANCHIN

FERC Chair Richard Glick was renominated by President Biden for another 4-year term. But guess who won't even hold a hearing? Sen. Joe Manchin. As a result, Glick could lose his job and Manchin may again throw a wrench in the energy transition.

MEDIA MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Media companies around the globe are sick of covering the dire impacts of climate change on the poorest nations. So they came together to endorse a windfall tax on fossil fuel companies. Read why they chose to speak out.
