UPDATE January 1, 2016:

May 7-15, 2016:  Break Free from Fossil Fuels
We are mobilizing to keep fossil fuels in the ground and accelerate a just transition to 100% renewable energy and a sustainable future for all.

After the Climate Summit in Paris we need to redouble efforts to end the use of destructive fossil fuels and choose a clean and just energy future.

Actions are being planned at locations all over the world, and plans are coming together quickly — be a part of it from the very beginning.


Hard Truth about Paris Climate Deal -


Add your voice. Tell world governments:
We need a climate deal that's in line with the imperatives of science and justice. Keep 80% of fossil fuels in the ground and finance a just transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050.

Politicians don’t lead movements — people do.
