“Every single child in the world is expected to suffer from at least one climate change-related event in the next 10 years.” For the sake of future and present generations, it’s up to all of us to push @POTUS and Congress to take real climate action NOW! thehill.com/policy/equilib…
It’s National #PollinatorWeek, an annual celebration in support of pollinator health. 🐝 As bees face challenges from Big Ag, climate change and more, we need to stand up to protect them. Join us:fwwat.ch/3sMHkrAZgizmodo.com/california-bum…S
The land known as ‘Cancer Alley’ used to be called ‘Plantation Country’ - that’s how much the history of slavery impacts environmental racism today. Check out the work of @risestjames to fight industrial pollution and protect Black Louisianans. wwno.org/coastal-desk/2…
From industrial pollution in Black neighborhoods to discrimination against Black farmers, Black freedom and safety is a climate justice issue. This #Juneteenth, we honor Black climate leaders, like @DrBobBullard and continue our commitment to racial justice.
On #Juneteenth, we reiterate our support for @SenBooker’s Justice for Black Farmers Act. Racial justice must include repair of historical & present harms towards Black people, in agriculture & everywhere. Here's an explanation of the bill from last year. motherjones.com/food/2020/11/b…
This is a good first step, but as our own @MaryGrant_Water says, “The EPA needs to go much further by implementing strong, enforceable regulations on the entire class of PFAS chemicals that are sickening communities around the country.” commondreams.org/news/2022/06/1…
While this is good news, it’s unfair that corporations and fossil fuels have destroyed our environment to the point that polar bears have to adapt. Our planet deserves better! theguardian.com/world/2022/jun…
There are only FIVE DAYS LEFT until our virtual screening of @jonbowermaster’s new documentary short film, “Dear President Biden.” Sign up to join us on Thursday at 7PM ET: fwwat.ch/DPB_TW #PeopleVsFossilFuels
The short answer is the climate crisis. We need meaningful climate action to prevent disasters like this from becoming the norm! cnn.com/2022/06/15/us/…
Cities like Pittsburgh need more federal funding to get lead out of their water sources. Legislation like the WATER Act would help to equitably fix this and other water crises around the country! foodandwaterwatch.org/2022/06/17/vps…
"The EPA needs to go much further by implementing strong, enforceable regulations on the entire class of PFAS chemicals that are sickening communities around the country," says @MaryGrant_Water of @foodandwater. cdreams.news/3HxYwY9

"The traditional Hawaiian farming vision is about creating a sustainable relationship between community and agriculture by re-establishing the connection between culture and land." We support the farmers who are protecting these traditions from Big Ag! theguardian.com/environment/20…
The climate crisis is happening today. People are suffering from it right now. We need leadership that doesn't wait any longer to act on climate, because that wastes time we simply don't have. newrepublic.com/article/166821…
Our thoughts are with everyone impacted by these floods. These 'thousand year floods' will happen far more frequently without immediate climate action. gizmodo.com/yellowstone-fl…
Hot weather is becoming more dangerous around the world. These scientists hope that making the danger explicit might move governments to action. grist.org/extreme-weathe…
Whether or not they're making the news, climate crises are compounding each other and putting many of us in danger. We need our leaders to keep it from getting worse by ending fossil fuel emissions. truthout.org/articles/almos…
Leading climate scientists and organizers have a message for @POTUS @JoeBiden: reject fossil fuels & declare a climate emergency now! #PeoplevsFossilFuels Join us for the premiere of a new short film “Dear President Biden” on Thurs 6/23. RSVP here: fwwat.ch/39eGGwO
People can't keep living under these conditions. We need stronger action on climate, now! theguardian.com/us-news/2022/j…
PFAS 'forever chemicals' are everywhere, and that's a big problem. We need much stronger regulations to protect our water and our health! foodandwaterwatch.org/2022/06/15/pfa…
Rising sea levels and other climate crises make the pollution of Superfund sites even more dangerous. All the more reason to remediate these sites, end fossil fuel emissions, and stop climate change! gothamist.com/news/how-clima…
More fracking is the exact opposite of what we need. 😡gizmodo.com/lng-natural-ga…f
Efforts to protect people from heat waves need to focus on supporting already-vulnerable populations. Like so many responses to the climate crisis, effectiveness requires equity! grist.org/cities/lessons…
Another example of how powerful Big Oil wields power in our governments: Oil & gas companies subverting climate science education in our school systems so they can continue to profit at the expense of our planet & kids. We need to end their power now. scientificamerican.com/article/subver…
Beyond preventing tourism, people who live near Yellowstone year-round face health risks from flooding and water pollution. We need better prevention of and protection from these climate crises. npr.org/2022/06/15/110…
These rate increases are too much for many Baltimore residents to afford. As our own Rianna Eckel says, "We can’t choose between affordable water service and quality, it has to be both." wypr.org/wypr-news/2022…
We know that Big Ag is a serious source of water and soil pollution. This mega chicken ranch, like all factory farming operations, is bad news for the Oregon environment, which is why we are fighting to get the permit revoked. statesmanjournal.com/story/news/202…
President Biden is absolutely right. The big oil companies are making obscene profits gouging working Americans at an unprecedented level. Democrats in Congress should support the president’s fight against their greed and enact a windfall profits tax NOW. twitter.com/cnnpolitics/st…

In the face of climate crisis, renewable energy sources are efficient and effective! cnn.com/2022/06/14/us/…
Air pollution is a life or death issue, and vulnerable communities face higher risks. We must protect people's health by pushing for better air quality regulations! cnbc.com/2022/06/14/air…
We are glad that the EPA is taking steps to warn people about the health risks of PFAS pollution. What we really need, though, are enforceable regulations (like those included in the WATER Act) to prevent this pollution in the first place. foodandwaterwatch.org/2022/06/15/epa…
This is the result of fossil fuel interests' control over politics. Aliso Canyon must be shut down, NOW! dailynews.com/2022/06/12/sta…
We can’t stop pushing @POTUS to declare a climate emergency & stop fossil fuel projects. Learn how you can join the fight at our virtual screening of @jonbowermaster’s new documentary short film, “Dear President Biden”: fwwat.ch/DPB_TW #PeopleVsFossilFuels
Are you looking for a summer read to motivate your climate work? Check out Still Hopeful: Lessons from a Lifetime of Activism by Maude Barlow, longtime climate activist and Food & Water Watch Board Chair! yaleclimateconnections.org/2022/06/12-boo…
Everyone should be able to enjoy beaches, but pollution often makes that unsafe or impossible. We need infrastructure and legislation (like the WATER Act!) to protect our water sources for everyone! foodandwaterwatch.org/2022/06/14/how…
The illegal seafood industry is bad for the environment and for workers' rights. It's long past time for better accountability! civileats.com/2022/06/13/the…
Dairy biogas has no part in a clean, equitable transition off of oil and gas. @AirResources: we need a fossil fuel phaseout, not more greenwashing. #OurClimateFuture includes real climate solutions, not polluting dairy biogas!
This piece from 2019 reminds us that, from housing to holding banks accountable, climate is an #LGBTQ+ issue. This #PrideMonth, let’s honor the LGBTQ+ leaders of the #ClimateJustice movement! grist.org/article/what-t…
Even after Congress reported on their dishonesty and disregard for workers' lives, Smithfield Foods has the nerve to try and get our case against them dismissed. We can't let them keep putting workers at risk! foodandwaterwatch.org/2022/06/13/foo…
Worsening climate change ➡️ more severe flooding ➡️ higher levels of water contamination ➡️ higher risks of water borne illnesses. The fights for water justice and climate justice are intertwined! apnews.com/article/climat…
California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard program is letting polluters pay to pollute & doing nothing to protect low-income communities from harmful emissions. Join us tomorrow at 3PM ET to learn how you can help fight for the real climate solutions we need: fwwat.ch/3GrYSPv
A culture build around unlimited fossil fuel production is not a sustainable culture. Alternatives like solar power exist and we know they can work; what we need is the political will to implement them. e360.yale.edu/features/wrong…
In Detroit and everywhere, people need permanent, reliable access to clean and safe water. Water shutoffs are a human rights violation, because #WaterIsAHumanRight! freep.com/story/news/loc…
“It’s not an abstract idea for us...For Latinos, climate change is about how to protect our families, our children.” apnews.com/article/climat…
The people most impacted by America’s policy violence have already imagined a better way! Join the #PoorPeoplesCampaign for a Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly & #MoralMarch on Washington & #ToThePolls on June 18, 2022! RSVP: poorpeoplescampaign.org/june18/?source…
Congress confirmed our lawsuit: Smithfield Foods lied about meat shortages and pandemic precautions, and workers paid the price. Smithfield is trying to get our case dismissed, but our legal team is holding firm! foodandwaterwatch.org/2022/06/13/con…
The megadairy industry is inherently dangerous to the climate. What we really need to push for, as our Legal Director Tarah Heinzen says, is corporate accountability - for large food companies to pay for (and ultimately stop!) their harmful practices. pdxmonthly.com/news-and-city-…
On Friday, we joined @foodandwater in opposing @SmithfieldFoods' motion to dismiss our case, which alleges that the pork giant lied to consumers throughout the pandemic at the expense of workers' lives. food.publicjustice.net/food-advocacy-…

Unfortunately, a company's use of renewable energy certificates doesn't actually mean they are cutting their fossil fuel emissions. (Sometimes, their emission rates actually rise.) Another reason we need transparency around corporate climate practices! grist.org/accountability…
People of all sorts of ideologies know that carbon pipelines are NOT in the public interest! As our Senior Organizer Emma Schmit says, “No matter what your view on this is, we can all agree that it’s bad, and we have to stop it.” grist.org/protest/across…
"Spills of this [smaller] scale rarely make headlines, and that’s a problem: Small events are the large majority of oil spills, and together they have a big impact." gizmodo.com/oil-spill-lake…
