Thanks for tuning into Climate People's monthly newsletter, Driven By Impact!
In honor of Indigenous Peoples' Day earlier this month, we wanted to focus on the importance of moving towards a fossil-fuel-free economy. Alongside all of the detrimental effects this industry poses on the environment, it's a major humanitarian crisis as well. The effects of this industry are especially distressing for our Indigenous Communities. One of the 1% For The Planet nonprofits we support, The Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN), works diligently to help reverse some of these harms. We encourage you to do your part in helping end this pain — for both our planet and communities.
Get involved. Here are some resources to #StopLine3
If it's available to you, a donation to IEN can help immensely
We have an opportunity to decrease emissions by ~70% via decarbonizing the grid with electrification. When the demand for oil is eliminated, the need for an intrusive pipeline will simultaneously subside. Climate technologies are an exceptional way to break free from our current fossil fuel-reliant infrastructure.
