Major U.S. banks are continuing to invest massively in climate-wrecking fossil fuels despite warnings from the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and International Energy Agency (IEA) that all investments in new fossil fuel projects must end immediately.
The good news is that Climate First! and other groups are organizing many bank customers to file complaints with their lenders in order to get the banks to start cutting their investments in dirty fossil fuels. This effort, known as the Customers for Climate Justice campaign, is just one of numerous campaigns organized by a nationwide coalition of 230 groups called Stop the Money Pipeline.
To continue our critical work, Climate First! needs your financial help to cover expenses involving communication, travel, as well as office equipment and rent. Specifically, our 10-11 year old refurbished computer is starting to fail. Any generous donation towards a new device would be appreciated.
