Big banks’ business as usual is killing the climate. From 2014 to 2016, big banks around the world poured $290 billion into extreme fossil fuel companies and failed to respect human rights.
Both nominees and Senators alike appeared oblivious to the fact that gas is as dirty as coal and that significantly increasing gas reliance through new pipelines and liquefied natural gas export facilities is incompatible with a stable climate.
Community activists and organizations sent a letter to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) today, signed by 118 groups, demanding the agency halt all construction of the Rover gas pipeline, and to embark upon an extensive review of its approval policies.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has been using alternative facts to assess the climate impact of gas pipelines. We set the record straight with new briefings on the impact of the proposed Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast pipelines.
Two studies released today find that if built, the controversial Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast pipelines would together contribute as much greenhouse gas pollution as 45 coal-fired power plants — some 158 million metric tons a year.
Everyday people in Virginia are standing up to the fossil fuel fatalism of Dominion Power.
A new report out from Oil Change International, in partnership with 11 other local, regional, and national organizations, shows that current projections for U.S. natural gas production – fueled by a boom in the Appalachian Basin – will lock in enough carbon to bust through agreed climate goals.
Forecast gas production growth will bust the climate, even with no methane leakage.
Today’s budget missed the opportunity to make meaningful cuts to wasteful handouts to some of the wealthiest, most polluting fossil fuel companies on the planet.
Yesterday, the World Bank’s Executive Directors agreed to a new ‘Energy Sector Directions Paper’ which lays out the expected course for the Bank’s future energy lending. While there are some encouraging indications that the Bank will move away from coal financing, the increased emphasis on natural gas and large hydropower is likely to undermine the strategy’s stated objective of increasing energy access for the poor.
