" Sign and share to ask Attorney General Loretta Lynch to take over and bring Exxon to Justice. No new offshore oil drilling. Right now, President Obama is deciding whether or not to open new coastal areas to offshore drilling.
It’s one of the last major environmental and climate decisions he’ll make as president. The president's Department of the Interior released a draft plan early last year to open up new areas of the Atlantic coast, Arctic and Gulf of Mexico to new offshore drilling.1 The agency is finalizing the plan now, and recent reports suggest President Obama is moving forward with plans for new offshore drilling.2 For the sake of our oceans, and the urgent need to transition from dirty fossil fuels, it would be a huge mistake for President Obama to allow new offshore drilling on federal waters. Tell Congress: Zero carbon emissions by 2050. Sign the petition After the Paris talks on climate change, let's seize the momentum and build a strong national consensus on the future of energy, and begin a just transition to a renewable energy economy.

One day in November, they blocked the entrance to a parking lot in Montrose, N.Y., where work is being done on a major natural gas pipeline expansion, the Algonquin Incremental Market (AIM) Project. Now they plan to defend themselves in court on the grounds that their actions were necessary to protect humanity from climate disruption. Stop the Tesoro-Savage oil-by-rail export terminal. This week, Congress give Big Oil a huge holiday gift: lifting the four-decades-old ban on crude oil exports.1 With the ink still drying on the landmark Paris climate agreement, this is a significant setback that could promote U.S. drilling and increase carbon emissions.
That makes it more important than ever to stop the next step in Big Oil’s plans: building huge terminals to export more crude overseas, like the massive Tesoro-Savage oil train terminal proposed in Vancouver, Washington. Tesoro-Savage would be the largest oil-by-rail facility in North America,2 shipping up to 360,000 barrels per day of crude to be burned across the world — making the project nearly half the size of the Keystone XL pipeline. Mai 2016 : Libérons nous des fossiles. Peut-on vraiment sortir des énergies fossiles ? Fossil fuel companies aren’t just bad for the climate — they’re bad investments. Activists often use moral language when advocating for divestment from fossil fuel companies: It is wrong to participate in the destruction of our planet, say college students and the parishioners of liberal churches.
We should express our disapproval by divesting, they argue, and help to build momentum for carbon regulation and cleaner energy sources. But what if fossil fuels are just bad investments? What if oil, gas, and coal companies have sunk billions of dollars into buying up the rights to carbon fuels that they will never actually be able to extract? That’s what a growing band of financiers argue, and the people who follow their investment advice are benefiting from it. In order to meet the international goal of keeping global warming below 2 degrees Celsius, 60 to 80 percent of fossil fuel reserves held by publicly traded corporations cannot be burned. You have to see these pictures of Seattle’s kayaking climate protesters. An estimated 500 climate activists took to kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, and even a solar-powered party barge on Saturday to tell Shell to get the hell out of Seattle. Rallying cry: #sHellNo!
