Last month, Australia passed a law to cut emissions 43% by 2030. Now, the Aussie state with one of the most carbon intensive energy supplies in the world has made a plan to completely move away from coal. We need to see action like this around the world! theguardian.com/australia-news…
This week, the US has the opportunity to join 137 other nations in agreeing to phase out HFCs (a greenhouse gas more than 1,000 times more potent than CO2) by approving the Kigali Amendment. Approving this treaty is not only good for the planet, it's good for American businesses. twitter.com/SenatorCarper/…
Just like @ginamccarthy46, I am optimistic that America is ready to lead in this decisive decade for climate action. Gina, thank you for working tirelessly as National Climate Advisor to show that climate action and economic progress go hand-in-hand. nytimes.com/2022/09/19/opi…
The entire environmental movement is indebted to the tireless advocacy of @DrBobBullard. As work begins to implement the historic climate investments in the Inflation Reduction Act, we must heed his call & join together to prioritize environmental justice. nytimes.com/2022/09/12/cli…
As King Charles III begins his reign, I am grateful for his decades of leadership and deep commitment to the environment and protecting the future of our planet. I wish him comfort in this bittersweet moment and strength in a time of profound consequence for the UK and the world.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has been the exemplar of public service and stability during her long and storied life. My heart goes out to not only the Royal Family, but to everyone who is mourning her passing today.
Big news! Australia, one of the biggest emitters per capita, just set a legally binding climate target to cut emissions by at least 43% by 2030. I applaud this increase in ambition and am hopeful that they will follow through to meet and possibly exceed this goal! twitter.com/BBCWorld/statu…
Unprecedented heatwaves, floods, & drought are destroying lives around the world. Yet, according to the @OECD & @IEA, fossil fuel subsidies from major economies nearly DOUBLED last year, reaching their second-highest levels in 7 years. These subsidies are reckless and immoral.
We should, in this moment, remember Gorbachev as a man willing to risk his own power for the possible betterment of his people. He placed a brave and aspirational bet that peace requires dismantling the need for an “enemy other”. (2/2)
I am deeply saddened to hear of the death of Mikhail Gorbachev. He understood that a nation is most powerful when it embraces peace, bold innovation, and most importantly: the truth. (1/2)
Historically, Pakistan is responsible for just ~0.4% of global emissions. Yet the country is facing catastrophic, unprecedented consequences as rising global temperatures disrupt the water cycle. washingtonpost.com/world/2022/08/…
Congratulations to @simonstiell on his new role as @UNFCCC Executive Secretary. With climate action accelerating in the US, the world community must come together and act boldly at #COP27. Looking forward to his much-needed leadership! twitter.com/unfccc/status/…
The great American poet Wallace Stevens wrote: “After the final no there comes a yes. And on that yes the future world depends.” Today, the US finally said yes to climate action. Let us embrace this moment as a tipping point for climate action – in America and around the world.
It's been a long time coming, but the Senate has finally advanced transformative climate legislation. Thank you to Senators Schumer and Manchin and to every Senator who fought to ensure that climate action was a priority in this bill. Now to the House and to the President's desk!
✅ Clean energy investments ✅ Tax credits for EVs and energy efficiency ✅ Incentives to reduce emissions in agriculture, manufacturing & more This bill will invest in critical climate solutions, tackle inflation, and reduce costs across America. washingtonpost.com/us-policy/2022…
It's time to join together in support of this bold #ClimateAction – and then accelerate our efforts to continue our work to move away from the dirty energy economy of the past and toward a sustainable future. 3/3
No deal is perfect and we need many more actions to solve the climate crisis. Yet, this bill is a long overdue and necessary step to ensure the US takes decisive action on the climate crisis that helps our economy and provides leadership for the world by example. 2/3
The Inflation Reduction Act has the potential to be a historic turning point. It represents the single largest investment in climate solutions & environmental justice in US history. Decades of tireless work by climate advocates across the country led to this moment. 1/3
At age 100, Norman Lear is, as ever, wise beyond his years. He always brings creativity and joy to the essential work of building a better future. Wishing Norman the happiest of birthdays! nytimes.com/2022/07/27/opi…
As Spanish PM @sanchezcastejon has said, "climate change kills." How many more records will be broken and communities engulfed in flames before we take the action needed to avert the worst impacts of the climate crisis? latimes.com/world-nation/s…
Thank you, @PEspinosaC, for your years of committed leadership at the @UNFCCC. I am hugely appreciative of all the work that you have done and will continue to do to implement the solutions to the climate crisis. twitter.com/PEspinosaC/sta…
The assassination of Shinzo Abe is a horrific tragedy. I will always be impressed by his steadfast commitment to the people of Japan and his dedicated advocacy on their behalf. It was a privilege to know and work with him and I join the global community in mourning his loss.
This comes at the end of a term that will be remembered for moving America backwards. To address the climate crisis, we must address the democracy crisis. We must harness this moment to galvanize change. My statement on WV v EPA: algore.com/news/statement… 2/2
Today’s decision is a disappointment, but it's not a surprise. It's the result of coordination by the fossil fuel lobby to dismantle progress toward climate solutions. This ruling does not mean we are out of options! We must call on Congress to pass climate legislation. 1/2
Let's rise w/ @UniteThePoor & join the moral fight against systemic racism, wealth inequality, environmental degradation & the scourge of bigotry & violence.  Whether you're in DC or watching live (link below), raise your voice & show up at the polls! poorpeoplescampaign.org
I was so grateful for our special guests @RepSusieLee @repdinatitus @JonathanScott @CassieSnowLV @INQLIFE @JustinJonesNV @TimGuinee & @CalumWorthy. And of course, the people who made this training possible: our entire @ClimateReality team! 5/6
Dr. Elena Krieger & @nativehydro joined us to answer @ClimateReality leaders’ questions about the climate crisis & its solutions. Scientists like these brilliant women are illuminating our fight against the crisis through their research & teachings. Thank you both! 3/6
I was inspired by @ClimateReality Leaders Shawn Harpen, Li-Ya Mar, Lily Morse, & Malika Yates, who shared specific pieces of advice on how to drive action. Among them: dive right in and be sure to listen to and understand the perspectives of your audiences. 2/6
I am so energized after spending three days with climate advocates from across the Southwest at @ClimateReality’s 49th Leadership Corps training! It was an incredibly special weekend filled with education, storytelling & most importantly: hope. 1/6
As we kick off our 49th @ClimateReality training in Las Vegas, we rise in solidarity with those marching today to urge our leaders to take swift action & pass the common-sense policies that can help prevent this constant cycle of gun violence. #MarchForOurLives
Just arrived in Las Vegas where the @ClimateReality team is ready to welcome 500 new changemakers tomorrow for our 49th Leadership Corps training! We have much to learn from the scientists, activists, & experts who are joining us. Stay tuned for updates this weekend!
On the eve of his retirement, I want to express my deep gratitude to Ken Berlin for his 8 years of outstanding leadership and vision as President & CEO of @ClimateReality. His work has enabled tens of thousands around the world to drive climate action. Thank you, Ken! twitter.com/ClimateReality…
It’s time for those who have obstructed the common-sense measures that will keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of mass-murders to put the lives of their fellow Americans over their quest for campaign contributions. It is long past time to pass common-sense gun legislation.
How many children, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and loved ones will be stolen from us before we take action? From Columbine to Uvalde, we have failed to keep our children safe because of the stranglehold the gun lobby has on our democracy.
After 19 children are shot dead in their school, is enough, enough? After Black women and men are killed in a hate-fueled and racist attack on a grocery store in Buffalo, is enough, enough?
Once again, we are confronted with this uniquely American form of devastation triggered by yet another mass shooting. Once again, we will go through a painfully familiar cycle of grief and outrage.
As a parent and a grandparent, I can’t imagine the pain and horrific loss that the families of Uvalde are feeling today as they wake up with an empty bed where their child should be.
Nearly 10 years ago, 20 children were slaughtered in their classrooms in Newtown, CT. And nearly 10 years later, it’s happened again in Uvalde, TX.
I'm thrilled to announce Phyllis Cuttino as the new President & CEO of @ClimateReality. Phyllis is a proven climate leader with a strong track record of bringing together diverse voices from across the climate movement to drive change. climaterealityproject.org/press/climate-…
At this pivotal point in our history, we face a crucial choice: embrace the solutions to the climate crisis or succumb to moral cowardice. My @TEDTalks conversation with @WhitPennRod focuses on the steps we must take to ensure we meet this moment. ted.com/talks/al_gore_…
Last night, I was honored to join @EbooPatel @RevFredDavie & my daughter @KarennaGore at an event hosted by @interfaithusa & @EarthEthicsCtr on the vital role Black faith communities can play in solving the climate crisis. I am grateful for the ongoing dialogue they are leading. twitter.com/interfaithusa/…
.@IEA's @fbirol is absolutely right: new fossil fuel projects "are not the solution to our urgent energy security needs." As he notes, not only will they lock in fossil fuel use, they don't make economic sense and won't materialize for years. theguardian.com/environment/20…
New analysis by @ClimateTRACE coalition member @TransitionZero shows that the cost of switching from coal power to renewables has dropped 99% since 2010, making natural gas a "bridge fuel" to nowhere. theguardian.com/environment/20…
Global Plastic Watch (a project of @minderoo) has used AI & satellite data to pinpoint the size, growth & locations of plastic dump sites around the world. This data is also helping @ClimateTRACE analyze & track emissions from these sites. Check it out: globalplasticwatch.org
Norm Mineta was a remarkable American and one of our finest public servants. I cherish the years we spent together as colleagues and am forever grateful for the kindness, courage, and wisdom he brought to his work. He will be deeply missed. washingtonpost.com/obituaries/202…
Last call for US activists who want to build the movement for bold climate action! Join me alongside world-class experts at the @ClimateReality Leadership Corps training on June 11-13 in Las Vegas. The deadline to apply is today, April 27. bit.ly/LasVegasTraini…
People today are rallying for:  💡an equitable transition to clean energy  ⚖️ racial, environmental & economic justice  🌎 a livable planet & sustainable communities  It’s time for US leadership to listen to this youth-led movement & pass some legislation#FightForOurFuturere
Center for Earth Ethics hosting this afternoon 4-7, all are invited (livestream link below). Will be full of creative energy and clear vision, lifting spirits this Earth Day. Grateful to @djspooky for catalyzing, @ClimateMuseum for partnering and all artists and speakers. ✨🌏✨twitter.com/EarthEthicsCtr…B

Taking photos every ~15 minutes on 3/21, the DSCOVR satellite gave us this beautiful view of 24hrs on Earth. Yet each day, we pump another 162M tons of GHG pollution into our atmosphere. While that is sadly still true on this #EarthDay, we must commit to building a better future.
