Climate Movement Monday: No more oil & gas leases on public lands

Welcome back to Movement Mondays in which I share information, including how to take action on behalf of the frontline communities suffering the worst effects of climate change.

As I write this, COP27 (United Nations Climate Change Conference) is taking place in Egypt. António Guterres, the Secretary-General of the UN understands the gravity of the situation. This morning he tweeted:

I have just warned global leaders at #COP27: We are on a highway to climate hell with our foot on the accelerator. Our planet is fast approaching tipping points that will make climate chaos irreversible. We need urgent #ClimateAction.

Urgent climate action means all fossil fuels must remain in the ground!

That’s why today’s action is aimed at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Because of the “poison pills” in the Inflation Reduction, the BLM is currently preparing oil and gas lease sales in Wyoming, New Mexico, and Kansas.

PLEASE use this form to let the BLM know you strongly oppose the proposed lease sales.  There’s a letter template in place. You can send as-is or personalize. I kept my message brief and to the point.

Thank you for efforts on behalf of the planet’s most vulnerable. Solidarity! ✊🏽

    • Thank YOU for interacting, Becky. I fear it’s only the two of us and wish I knew how to engage more people. If you have any thoughts on how I could present the info or entice people to read and take action, I’d welcome those ideas. Any and all ideas welcome! One thought I had was to create short videos because I think people respond to seeing the person talking rather than reading their words. Anyway, no pressure. Just want you to know how grateful I am for your participation.

      • Hi Tracy, You could try movies for a few weeks and see if there’s any difference. Do you follow quite a few blogs, reading and leaving comments? Often those people will then do the same for you in return. And if you could target blogs similar to yours on these topics, they might be even more apt to check yours out and comment.

      • Hi Becky. Thank you for your thoughtful reply. I do follow and comment on other blogs, interacting quite frequently with some, and yet there doesn’t seem to be interest in climate action from some of those folks. I’m doing some research into other “climate” blogs and am strategizing a way for us to pool our resources and maybe get more involvement. Thank you again! 🌻
