Climate & Energy JusticeThe climate crisis is the definitive environmental issue of our time, but it will take more than just greenhouse gas-reducing technologies to address it.
The Climate & Energy Justice Team envisions energy systems that are ecologically balanced, centered on community self-determination, and that recognize and address systemic inequity. We seek to stop the exploitation of people and the environment by: halting dirty energy production; ending fossil fuel subsidies; supporting a planned phase-out of fossil fuels; protecting public lands; and preventing climate disinformation.
Recognizing that there can be no climate justice without racial justice, we support energy systems that advance environmental justice, foster equitable relationships among and within nations, and secure clean energy access for all.
