INDIVIDUALS CAN NOW SIGN CATHOLIC CLIMATE DECLARATION

Individuals can now sign onto the Catholic Climate Declaration, saying we still support the Paris Agreement. Organizations, parishes, etc. can still sign-on as well. On June 18, the third anniversary of the release of "Laudato Si'," nearly 700 Catholic institutions had signed on to say that "Catholics Are Still in" on the Paris Agreement. That number continues to grow.

Please sign-on here

Please urge more people to sign-on as individuals and also get your parish, school, and other Catholic agencies to do so as well.

Signatures will be accepted until September 12, 2018, the start of the Global Climate Action Summit.

BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT: STOP WASTING NATURAL GAS

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a department of the Department of the Interior, is wasting natural gas on public and tribal land.

As soon as President Trump took office, he attacked crucial limits on the amount of methane pollution that the oil and gas industry is allowed to vent, leak, and flare, when drilling for natural gas. Consequently, the BLM wants to remove protections from oil and gas wells on their land. This would harm American's health and safety. We need to tell the BLM to keep the stronger protections that we all deserve.

Every year, the oil and gas industry wastes about $330 million worth of natural gas. Taxpayers pay for this and it is harmful to our health. Natural gas is a fossil fuel. Our readers very likely know what fossil fuels do to our health and to our environment.

Please contact Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and demand that the BLM keep the stronger protections that we all deserve.

Here is the contact information for Secretary Zinke:

Thanks for taking immediate action.

 

ARCTIC WILDLIFE REFUGE SIGN-ON OPPORTUNITY

The Trump Administration budget includes opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling. They snuck the oil into the revenue side of the federal budget as a reckless speculative source of money.

Such drilling could decimate the 10,000+ year old Alaska Native Gwich'in civilization's land-based livelihood and spirituality.

Are you willing to sign-on to a letter saying NO to oil drilling in the Arctic Refuge?

The letter is here:http://www.faithforthearctic.org/take-action. It is being managed by the National Religious Partnership for the Environment (NRPE). They do not keep an e-advocacy list and will not hold on to contact information of signers.

Please consider signing the letter. Thank you!
