    Release: Paris Agreement Ratification Means No New Fossil Fuels

    RELEASE: Fossil Fuel Expansion Has Reached the Sky’s Limit: Report

Except it won’t.

    White House Responds to Keep It In the Ground Petition

    That the White House was forced to officially respond to this petition is yet another indication of the growing power of the Keep It In The Ground movement.
  • Reaction: EIA’s latest outlook another recipe for climate chaos

    The EIA’s Reference Case is a recipe for disaster, and indicates that we need a new set of ingredients to create the clean energy economy necessary to solve the climate crisis.
