Earth Day Summit

Sign the petition calling on Trudeau to deliver on climate ahead of Biden’s Earth Day climate summit. r1

Friends,

Trudeau likes to present himself as a climate leader, but Environment Canada confirmed yesterday that our greenhouse gas emissions are still rising. The largest source? Oil and gas extraction.1

And just this morning, news broke that the Trudeau government and Canada’s most powerful oil lobby -- The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers -- convened a secretive working group during the pandemic.2 This partnership allowed the fossil fuel industry to secure unfair advantages, including a 200% increase in public hand-outs to oil companies. We need to shift off fossil fuels as soon as possible, but the Trudeau government is still letting Big Oil set the agenda.

It’s appalling that Canada’s joining the Global Earth Day Climate Summit as this news comes to light. That’s why as this big global moment approaches, we’re calling on Trudeau to deliver climate action that matches the scale of this crisis. Add your name now.

President Biden called this Earth Day Summit to demonstrate that the United States is ready to take climate action seriously after almost half a decade of Trump’s climate denial. We need Trudeau, and all world leaders... attending this summit, to show up ready to get to work. Tens of thousands of people across the world have already signed this petition and called on world leaders to deliver on climate justice by:

  • Strengthening their climate targets
  • Putting a stop to the flow of public money to fossil fuels
  • Getting serious by about the transition to 100% renewables
  • Ensuring no one is left behind as we act on climate

It’s time to send a clear message by joining the Earth Day climate summit with the strongest position possible. Sign the petition to demand that Trudeau deliver bold climate action.

We know that climate is a top issue for people across the globe. World leaders know it too. But that fact alone isn’t enough. We have to make it clear that people across the world expect real action on the climate crisis.

Onwards,

Atiya

PS - Trudeau’s had 6 years to show us that he’s ready to take climate seriously. Every day that he’s failed to act has shown us that the only way we can win real climate action in Canada is if we shake up the status quo of climate politics. That’s why last week, the 350 Canada team launched the campaign for a Climate Emergency Alliance. Check it out here.
