An open letter to the President

POTUS the IPCC report is dire. Reverse course on the Willow Project!

414 so far! Help us get to 500 signers!

The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has just released a synthesis of the main findings of its earlier reports—and the news is startlingly bad. According to The Guardian, “There is no new science in the synthesis report… [rather, it includes previous] warnings that the world [is] approaching “irreversible” levels of global heating, with catastrophic impacts rapidly becoming inevitable; and that it [is] “now or never” to take drastic action to avoid disaster.”  To stay under the 1.5 C marker, we would need to cut emissions in half by 2030—an assertion made with “very high certainty” by the IPCC. That means no new oil and gas drilling. Period. We’re running out of time, and the Biden administration isn’t treating this situation with nearly the urgency they ought to. Rather than approving the Willow Project, President Biden and Secretary Haaland need to reverse course and choose the no-action alternative suggested by Senator Markey and his colleagues. Even if they anticipate being sued and losing such a fight, that delay will give us more time to elect to Congress more representatives who prioritize staving off the climate crisis. It will also tell young people that they needn’t succumb to despair, as many of them, right now, are doing. This is life or death. Please, please reverse course before it’s too late. Let your legacy be that of saving, not dooming, future generations. Thanks.
