Climate & Energy JusticeFriends of the Earth’s Climate & Energy Justice Team is building toward energy systems that center ecological integrity, environmental justice, and human rights.
Our strategies and tactics are rooted in addressing the historic and ongoing systems of capitalist, racial, class, and colonial inequities that harm people and the planet.
We seek to end the extraction, development, and utilization of fossil fuels and other forms of dirty energy driving the climate crisis. We similarly work to stop the proliferating number of false solutions diverting political will and resources away from the urgent need to equitably phase out fossil fuels in line with science, justice, and the United States’ fair share of the global mitigation and financial burden.
