Listen to the experts! End taxpayer-funded fossil fuel subsidies.

Immediate action is needed to stop the global warming which is responsible for powerful wildfires, storms, droughts, and many health problems—from respiratory illness to heat-related deaths—facing everyone from our own communities to people around the world.

Why is this important?

Experts in fields ranging from public health to meteorology agree that we are in the middle of a global climate disaster which is hurting and killing millions of people annually and it will only get worse. Without immediate action, it will upend life as we know it for hundreds of millions of people.

The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report outlines how many of the changes we are experiencing globally "are unprecedented in thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of years."

The U.S. should acknowledge the damage the fossil fuel industry causes and be a global leader. Tell President Biden, Congress, and federal climate leaders to stop giving billions of dollars in subsidies to companies that are destroying the planet and killing people.

The fossil fuel industry is one of the biggest contributors to rising temperatures globally. The US must immediately end the $20 billion in government subsidies we give to these massive corporations like Exxon and Shell—and we can encourage US-based companies and our global allies to invest in a sustainable future. This global problem requires a global solution.

Sign the petition demanding an end to fossil fuel subsidies.
