National Day of Action vs JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo

On Wednesday, April 10, 2019, Climate First! and other groups across the U.S. will participate in a "National Day of Action vs JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo," the two leading banks in the world as far as financing fossil fuels. (See details below regarding  the Washington, D.C. action)

Alarmingly, the recently-released Fossil Fuel Finance Report Card 2019 shows that JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo have become  the #1 and #2 banks in the world, respectively, as far as financing fossil fuels over the past three years. It is the height of immorality for these two lenders to increase their funding of climate-wrecking fossil fuels, when the world's nations have committed themselves--by signing the Paris Climate Accord in 2015--to reduce their use of such fuels. Moreover, in view of the recent scientific report from the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which concluded that the world has about 12 years to dramatically cut back on greenhouse gas emissions, it is unconscionable that Chase and Wells Fargo have continued to ramp-up their fossil fuel investments.

Join Climate First! as we tell Wells Fargo to wake-up to the climate emergency that confronts us all, and start divesting from fossil fuels.
