“Biden’s climate legacy hangs in the balance — we need bold leadership, not tinkering around the edges. Declaring a climate emergency would make it clear that Biden views the climate crisis as an existential threat and unlock key powers to tackle climate change head-on and hasten a just transition to clean, renewable energy,” said Rees.
“We can’t transition away from fossil fuels by locking in five more years of deadly extraction, and Biden can’t claim to care about environmental justice while forcing oil and gas drilling on already burdened communities,” said Collin Rees.
“This Supreme Court decision was illegitimate and wrong, but does almost nothing to constrain President Biden’s toolbox to address the climate crisis,” said Collin Rees.
“Big Oil is gouging working families, and it’s critical to hold these companies accountable for their exploitative profiteering,” said Collin Rees.
“Voters will reward politicians who stand up for people, not polluters, and taxing windfall profits is wildly popular in every part of the country,” said Collin Rees.
“The EU’s new international energy strategy is woefully inadequate and would lock in decades’ more extraction of deadly gas and oil,” said Collin Rees.
“Congress must crack down on Big Oil’s insatiable greed by taxing these windfall profits and moving the United States and the world to renewable energy as quickly as possible,” said Collin Rees.
“The only effective response to today’s compounding crises is for global leaders to support the efficiency and clean energy solutions that can replace these dirty fuels and eliminate the need for any new LNG infrastructure,” said Laurie van der Burg.
“President Biden and world leaders must do everything in their power to end the fossil fuel era and move the United States and the world to 100% renewable energy as quickly as possible,” said Collin Rees.
“As many Global South countries face the worst debt crises we have seen in a generation and climate disasters at the same time, the IMF has a lot to answer for,” said Bronwen Tucker.
