While there’s so much this deal leaves undone and so much work still to do, the Paris Agreement does finally send a signal to the world that the age of fossil fuels is over. Now it’s up to us to close the gap between rhetoric and reality. We’re ready.

New Report: Protect the climate, save money, and create Jobs

October 29th 2015

Report: "The Clean Energy Future: Protecting the Climate, Creating Jobs and Saving Money" shows that the United States can reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050 — while adding half-a-million jobs and saving Americans billions of dollars on their electrical, heating, and transportation costs. Joe Uehlein of the Labor Network for Sustainability says, “This report is good news for American workers. Protecting the climate has often been portrayed as a threat to American workers’ jobs and the U.S. economy. But this report shows that a clean energy future will produce more jobs than “business as usual” with fossil fuels.”

Lockdown: The end of growth in the tar sands


Hannah McKinnon, Greg Muttitt and Lorne Stockman | Oil Change International - October 28th 2015

Report: The pipelines exporting tar sands out of Alberta are almost full, according to new analysis by Oil Change International. Without the construction of major pipelines, such as Energy East, Kinder Morgan or Keystone XL, there will be no room for further growth in tar sands extraction and tens of billions of metric tonnes of carbon will be kept in the ground. This would be a significant step towards a safer climate.
