Increased emissions under President Joe Biden would be equivalent to more than doubling existing emissions from U.S. coal plants if the U.S. moves ahead with 21 major fossil fuel infrastructure projects pending review by the Biden Administration.
“This is a major victory for Indigenous resistance and the climate. Trudeau needs to stop supporting this risky project immediately, and end all fossil fuel subsidies,” said Kyle Gracey of OCI.
“We urge Congress to end fossil fuel subsidies, and we expect Leader Schumer and Chairman Wyden to stand by their promises to end dirty subsidies to oil, gas, and coal,” said Collin Rees of Oil Change.
Today, Oil Change U.S., Sunrise Movement, Evergreen Action, Sierra Club, Indivisible, and other partners launched a joint Gas Is Not Clean campaign to ensure a potential Clean Energy Standard (CES) or Clean Energy Payment Program (CEPP) prohibits the inclusion of gas.
The new report shows that Indigenous communities resisting the more than 20 fossil fuel projects analyzed have stopped or delayed greenhouse gas pollution equivalent to at least 25 percent of annual U.S. and Canadian emissions.
The Biden White House released a statement from National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan urging OPEC to increase oil production; Oil Change International experts responded.
More than 500 organizations called on policymakers in the U.S. and Canada to reject Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) as a dangerous distraction and to end the “carbon capture of climate policy.”
Over 500 organizations, including a wide range of health, faith, environmental, and other groups across the United States released a letter today calling on Congressional leadership to eliminate the fossil fuel subsidies embedded in the U.S. tax code.
Over 500 groups released an open letter being sent to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, urging them to end fossil fuel subsidies.
“Every day President Biden refuses to stop the Line 3 pipeline is a slap in the face to Indigenous and environmental justice communities. Climate leadership means ending the fossil fuel era and stopping Line 3.”
