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! ✊🏽
