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.
"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.
Today, Oil Change International and over 150 other civil society organisations from all over the world sent an open letter to International Energy Agency (IEA) director Dr. Fatih Birol, urging him to center 1.5 degrees Celsius (ºC) in the 2021 World Energy Outlook (WEO). The IEA is due to release the WEO in one month, on October 13, 2021.
"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.
