THIS FRIDAY, DEC. 6th: GLOBAL CLIMATE STRIKE
SLC at the State Capitol, 2-4 pm
With 3 of the warmest years on record occurring in the last 10 years, our time to act effectively is dwindling. According to a report from the U.S. Geological Survey, “emissions from fossil fuels produced on federal lands and offshore areas represent an average of 24 percent of all national emissions of carbon . . .”
Ignoring the problem, the Trump administration continues to prioritize polluters over people. Since taking office, 621,454 acres in Utah have been auctioned for oil and gas development.
Join activists of all ages in opposing the year’s final oil and gas lease sale.
Our window of time to avoid the worst impacts of climate change is shrinking. We must take action to protect public lands from irreparable harm. Our last remaining wild places safeguard intact habitats and healthy ecosystems that act as carbon stores, and they support biodiversity, allowing wildlife to adapt in a changing climate. Public lands should not continue to be part of the problem—they should be a focal point for climate solutions.
