Who we are:
Oil Change International is a research, communication, and advocacy organization focused on exposing the true costs of fossil fuels and facilitating the coming transition towards clean energy.
A group of environmental and financial organizations representing over 7,600,000 members and supporters announced the launch of the DivestMVP coalition to highlight the financial instability of the fracked gas Mountain Valley Pipeline.
In a new paper published today, Oil Change International (OCI) and Reclaim Finance analyze the shortcomings of the climate scenarios published by the NGFS and highlight the risk that they may be used to justify slow and inadequate climate action by financial actors.
"Ending international public finance for fossil fuels would be a huge boost to climate action globally. The administration must now invest serious effort and diplomatic capacity to secure this shift in international finance away from oil, gas, and coal."
"Today's move by President Biden to freeze leasing for oil and gas production on federal lands and waters is a critical first step to ending this program once and for all."
Environmental justice, Indigenous, and climate groups from announced today that they have delivered millions of petitions and letters from hundreds of organizations supporting a halt on new fossil fuel leasing and permitting on public lands and oceans.
