Antarctica is too hot

Hi A,

The heatwave in Antarctica has broken all records. It’s a terrifying taste of what’s to come if we don’t act now.

It’s time to pull the plug on the fossil fuel industry driving climate change.

And we’ve got a plan to do it. Together, we can force banks to stop financing climate chaos. But we can’t fund this plan without your help.

Can you chip in a special weekly gift to take on the big banks funding climate change?

A,

We just watched Australia burn for five months. Now Antarctica’s set a record for its hottest temperature in history… for the second time in a week!

The climate emergency is destroying our planet, right now, and somehow getting worse every day.

Yet the worst offenders behind it -- a rotten, predatory financial sector that has poured an unbelievable $1.9 trillion into fossil fuels in the last 3 years alone -- are flying completely under the radar.

We’re going to change that.

SumOfUs has a plan to build a crack team of climate campaigners to expose the financial industry’s responsibility for climate chaos, then run massive campaigns in the media and with shareholders to force them to change. We’ll shine the spotlight on these giants like never before.

It could be a turning point for the planet, but we can’t do it without your help. Will you chip in weekly to hold the worst climate criminals to account?

Scientists are losing it, saying “We’ve never seen anything like this.” But household names like JPMorgan Chase, Citi, and Bank of America just carry on with business as usual.

The companies they shower with loans, investment, and insurance are responsible for 71% of all greenhouse gas emissions. If the banks just defunded fossil fuels, it could literally reset our global economy.

Right now the financial incentives are too high for them to change. We need to change the calculation, by making these banks as famous for fueling climate chaos as they are for plastering their names all over sports stadiums. Here’s how we’ll do it:

  • Build a team of expert climate defenders to run mega-campaigns that expose the worst offenders;
  • Make the CEOs famous for their personal role in climate destruction, hounding them at public appearances and splashing their faces on billboards and in the media;
  • Organize employees of targeted investment banks to oppose their companies’ policies from the inside;
  • File shareholder resolutions around the world to change the rules for investing in favor of the planet.

These banks are the root of the climate crisis. If we’re going to save the planet, this has to work.

We know it can work because we’ve done it before, convincing insurance giant AIG to end its underwriting of a disastrous, climate-wrecking coal mine near the Great Barrier Reef. So let’s do it again --

Will you chip in weekly and fund this plan to take on the big banks wrecking our climate?

The plan is ambitious and bold, I know. But ambitious and bold is the only thing that will save life on Earth -- and your support today can help make it happen.
