We are terribly saddened and disappointed to hear of the allegations of sexual harassment and assault at Fitzgibbon Media.
In response to the announced budget deal that would lift the crude oil export ban, Stephen Kretzmann, Executive Director of Oil Change International, released the following statement:

Regardless of the ultimate outcome, the writing is already on the wall. Concerned communities around the world are demanding and building a clean, safe, and renewable energy future. The end of the fossil fuel era is inevitable. World leaders have a chance to catch up to a growing movement here in Paris, but they will have to spend the next two days working on behalf of people, not polluters.
