Each year, like a giant dirty birthday present, billions of American taxpayer dollars go straight to propping up the oil and gas industries...the companies most responsible for American contribution to climate change. Climate activist Greta Thunberg has called these subsidies a "disgrace" and essential to eliminate if we are to live up to the Paris climate agreement.
And that's not all: these companies also benefit from loopholes and laws that allow them to skip over cleaning up the pollution they create.
So what would happen if President Biden and Congress took away those tax breaks and environmental loopholes – and instead put those billions straight into progressive climate initiatives like building green energy infrastructure and jobs? Answer: a radically game-changing and positive turnabout in the fight against climate change.
Add your name to demand President Biden and Congress eliminate tax breaks, loopholes, and preferential laws that support big oil and gas!
For decades, Republicans have blocked this essential strategy in order to protect their wealthy fossil fuel buddies at the expense of our planet's future. The effects of their denial and excuses can be seen in wild weather changes and sinking coastal cities across the globe, including Houston, Miami, and Charleston.
We have run out of time.
Sign here to demand Biden and Congress eliminate subsidies and environmental loopholes for the fossil fuel industry!
