“This coming decade is critical for the world in the fight against climate change, and to drive the necessary change in global energy systems will require action from everyone,” BP chief executive Bernard Looney said in an Aug. 4 statement.
Jamie Henn, a co-founder of 350.org, saw the announcement as encouraging too, but urged fellow environmentalists to remain cautious. “BP has admitted there is no future for oil,” Henn tweeted. “They’ve publicly committed to slash production and invest in clean energy. Now, we need to hold them to it.”
Social distancing has silver lining
Early returns from some areas of the world have demonstrated how global sheltering in place has positively affected the environment. To some degree, this enforced frugality has saved our world from global warming. People have stayed home, limited trips to stores, cut back on social gatherings, canceled vacations (especially on airlines and cruise ships), decreased use of autos, and worked from home whenever possible.
This self- imposed discipline is saving lives by limiting the spread of a deadly virus. What if, after the sanctions are lifted, every family limits or stops an activity similar to what they couldn’t do during the pandemic. The small sacrifices we make will reduce carbon pollution and the global warming that greenhouse gases cause.
COVID-19 produced a tangible and immediate threat. Global warming will be equally dire for our children and grandchildren. Let’s leverage our frightful experience of the coronavirus to tackle a threat that promises to be with us for many decades, even centuries.

Fossil fuels are the cause. We have to pull the plug on more drilling!
Want To Keep Our Oceans From Boiling? Stop Drilling We know what’s causing oceans to warm. On the other side of Florida’s peninsula, where the water was hottest, the Gulf of Mexico hosts more than 3,200 active offshore oil and gas drilling structures.

6 Unexpected Climate Lessons From Hurricane Ian - Inside Climate News Saying that Hurricane Ian was one for the history books is no understatement. The Category 4 hurricane—just the 15th storm of such magnitude to strike Florida since state record-keeping began in 1851—had maximum sustained winds of 150 miles per hour and a minimum central pressure of 940 millibar...
The Federal government has proposed as many as 10 new lease sales to expand oil and gas drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. We say no! The Gulf and the planet can't afford more drilling, especially with the fossil fuel industry already holding some 8 million acres of untapped leases in the Gulf. Follow the link from Healthy Gulf and take action by tomorrow--Thur. Oct. 6. Thank you!

We stand with our friends from Gulf South for a Green New Deal:
"We need every tool available to fight the climate crisis. In its ruling in West Virginia v. EPA, the Supreme Court has taken away one powerful tool: the EPA's ability to regulate greenhouse gases from power plants. As members of the Gulf South for a Green New Deal, and as residents of a region that is already seeing the devastating effects of man-made climate change, we are frustrated and disappointed in this ruling. But we are still determined to continue our fight to build a livable future.
The Gulf South for a Green New Deal comprises organizations from Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Puerto Rico committed to advancing a regional vision for a just climate transition. In these states and colonial territory that border the Gulf of Mexico and the warming Atlantic Ocean, we dread hurricane season more each year. Nobody has to tell Gulf South residents about the power and speed these storms gather from unseasonably warm Gulf surface waters. Our communities have already experienced the devastating impacts of the climate crisis through hurricanes, flooding, extreme heat, and other weather events. These disasters have compounded long-existing social problems, such as poverty, lack of health care, food scarcity, and energy inequality.
Our governments have long been unwilling to protect our communities from the increasing ravages of climate change. By bringing this suit against the EPA, elected officials representing our governments (specifically the Attorneys General of Texas, Louisiana, and Alabama and Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves) have made it their mission to set back even further any progress our country needs to make on climate resilience. By bringing suit on a defunct legal issue, our state governments have acted in defiance of their constituents' needs and of scientific reality.
Because our state governments are willing to sacrifice our communities' futures for the sake of political gain, we look to the federal government as a possible source of policy change. The Supreme Court has curtailed the already-limited power of the executive branch to regulate the fossil fuel sector with this ruling. If climate change was addressed through legislation, we would not need to leave it up to the Supreme Court to interpret rules. We call on every member of the legislative branch to stop avoiding, delaying, or ignoring their duty to enact laws that protect our communities from the worst effects of the climate crisis. Laws are the floor of protection for our communities. Federal environmental law protecting air quality must be effective across state lines and be responsive to the fluid nature of air pollutants, which do not respect political boundaries. With the IPCC's deadline to avoid climate catastrophe coming up in 2030, we demand our government to act NOW.
We need everyone to do everything within their power to address the climate crisis and build climate justice. As members of the Gulf South for a Green New Deal, we are fighting through the advancement of equity and justice along with the creation of living wage, ecologically sustainable jobs. You can do your part. Here are our suggestions:
Contact your state's attorney general ( find out who your state's AG is here ) and file a complaint
Leverage the GS4GND's network of national groups for protests, community building, and other actions
Take legal action on the state level and apply political pressure to our state governments
Hold your attorney generals, governors, and other elected officials accountable when they work against climate justice.
Propose strengthened environmental laws at the state level AND push Congress to codify environmental protections into law

We need all the tools available to fight the climate crisis. In its ruling in West Virginia v.

No one has to tell residents of the southern Gulf the power and speed these storms acquire in the unusually warm surface storm waters of the Gulf.Our communities have already experienced the devastating effects of the climate crisis through hurricanes, floods, extreme heat and other weather events.
