“It’s important for me to have hope because that’s my job as a parent, to have hope, for my kids, that we’re not going to leave them in a world that’s in shambles, that’s a chaotic place, that’s a dangerous place.” - James Cameron, Film Director

"Yesterday, 135 people were arrested for chaining themselves to the White House. Taking action as part of the People V Fossil Fuels week of action, their demand of President Biden was simple: stop fossil fuel projects and declare a climate emergency.
It’s vital to remember that the White House is not the only global power center enabling the climate crisis. Without the backing of major banks, such as Citibank, fossil fuel companies wouldn’t be able to afford to build pipelines like Line 3 and DAPL in the first place.
That's why we are swamping the office of Citibank CEO Jane Fraser with calls, demanding that Citi stop funding the fossil fuel industry. Can you make a call? ([link removed]) We have a call tool and a call script for you to use. All you need to do is pick up the phone and dial.
Since the Paris Agreement was signed, Citibank has loaned more than $238 billion to the fossil fuel industry ― second only to the “doomsday bank”, JPMorgan Chase.
Yet, only one week after Jane Fraser became the new CEO in May, Citibank announced its intention to achieve “net-zero emissions by 2050.” That is all well and good. But we need action, not words. We need policies that prohibit fossil fuel expansion today, not vague promises to take action in three decades time.
Can you call Citibank CEO Jane Fraser and let them know that committing to “net zero emissions by 2050” is meaningless ― unless it means that they are going to stop funding fossil fuel expansion today. ([link removed])
It is now only 19 days until the start of the Glasgow Climate Talks, a historic opportunity for the world to act on climate. We’re already seeing the first signs of action from the world’s largest polluters: After years of stalling, the United States has pledged to double its international climate finance commitment; China has committed to end financing of overseas coal plants.
Yet, with only 19 days to go, major corporate polluters like Citibank have been absolutely silent.
Can you call the Citibank CEO and let them know we need bold climate action now, not in three decades time ― it only takes five minutes to pick up the phone and leave a message but when hundreds of us make the call, it adds up to real pressure. ([link removed])
