We are getting under their skin

r1Hello Paov,

Thank you for your continued interest in the work of West Coast Environmental Law.

I focus on West Coast’s Climate Program and our efforts to hold fossil fuel companies accountable for their fair share of the costs of climate change.

I am pleased to share that our collective actions are getting attention by those whom we most want to notice our actions: Fossil fuel companies and the governments that support them.

In a recent report commissioned by the Alberta Inquiry into “Anti-Energy Campaigns” and written by the industry-based Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA), West Coast was referred to as “the leading organization promoting litigation against energy producers specifically in Canada…

While there are many inaccuracies in the reports around this inquiry (including misinformation about funding sources for our Climate Program), the Industry and Alberta government have definitely taken notice of our work. It is clear that the fossil fuel industry feels that our efforts to hold them accountable threaten business as usual in this polluting industry.

Paov, we have long held the belief that once these big oil companies realise that they will be liable for their actions that have harmed the climate, and the public expects them to pay their... share of climate costs, that they may start making investment decisions that move us towards a more sustainable future.

West Coast donors have been very generous in their support for the work we do. We will continue to press Canadian governments to defend their residents from climate harm caused by the global fossil fuel industry.

If you feel that you would like to see this work continue, please consider making a gift today.

Your past support has helped us get to this tipping point. If you are able, your gift will help us maintain pressure on fossil fuel companies and hold them accountable for their actions.

We will keep you updated on our climate work – thank you for standing with us!
