Stop Funding Climate Chaos

The scientific and moral imperative is clear: there must be no new investment in fossil fuel expansion, including production, infrastructure and exploration. - Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary General

 

Simply put, turning off the money pipeline is one of the most effective ways to stop increasing the input of carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere.

Rivers & Mountains GreenFaith - in coalition with Stop the Money Pipeline,  TH!RD ACT, and GreenFaith - plans and organizes actions directed at banks, insurance companies, asset managers and institutional investors to stop funding, insuring and investing in climate destruction… and, to realign their business with renewable clean energy.

TH!RD ACT has been collecting pledges from thousands and thousands of people to collectively move their deposits out of the big Wall Street banks if they do not stop loaning and underwriting money for the expansion of the fossil fuel industry.

On December 14th, Bill McKibben wrote to the CEOs of Bank of America, Chase, Citibank, and Wells Fargo... 20 organizations signed this letter - including Rivers & Mountains GreenFaith, 350org, Stop the Money Pipeline, Extinction Rebellion, and Sierra Club (see letter below).

The main ask is for a meeting in the month of January to discuss each bank’s climate commitments.  This request is in advance of the planned February delivery of the thousands of pledges to close bank accounts... all leading up to the national Day of Action on March 21, 2023.
