“All Congress members should speak out publicly to stand with frontline communities and reject Joe Manchin’s dirty deal,” said Collin Rees.
More than 650 organizations sent a letter to Sen. Chuck Schumer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi opposing the fossil fuel expansion ‘side deal’ proposed by West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin.
More than 650 climate, environmental justice, public health, youth, and progressive organizations sent a letter opposing the fossil fuel ‘side deal’ being advanced by Senators Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer.
“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.
“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 World Bank is falling short by doubling down on fossil fuel transportation investments that will lock in climate chaos while creating new sources of sickening pollution for communities around the globe,” said Collin Rees.
“True energy security means affordable, reliable, and fossil-free energy for all communities,” said Rees. “Congress should reject Big Oil and Gas’s cynical attempts to profit from human suffering and pass this bill immediately.”
“With sky-high energy prices, it’s mind-boggling to allow the fossil fuel industry to rake in record profits at the expense of working families. What’s needed now is immediate relief for American consumers, which is what this commonsense windfall profits tax bill would provide,” said Rees.
“We can’t adequately address the climate crisis if we’re exporting billions of barrels of oil and gas to be burnt overseas. Confronting Big Oil and Gas’s deadly expansion plans is critical, and that’s what Rep. Schakowsky and Rep. Barragán are doing with this bill.”
“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.
