One man could destroy our future in 34 days. Yep, Donald Trump.
He doesn’t even need the nuclear codes — he just needs to keep his promise to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, and have massive polluters like India or Russia follow suit!
But we’ve got a silver bullet: bypass Trump.
New York, California and Google have raised their climate ambitions after Trump’s election — if we get them to build a coalition of US cities, states and businesses to collectively meet the US climate target, the Paris agreement can hold. Let’s send a million voices directly to their doorsteps! Click here!
They’re trying to put a toxic coal complex next to the magical Great Barrier Reef! It’s a crazy plan, but we’ve got a chance to stop it.
The Australian government wants to give $1 billion to build a massive coal complex that could destroy the sea floor home of turtles and tropical fish. But first an independent panel must approve the loan, and they’ve never come under public pressure.
It’s time to make them feel the heat. Let’s put this reef-killing deal in a global spotlight with a million person petition and a massive campaign in the Australian media — add your name.

The Great Barrier Reef is threatened by the world’s largest coal port expansion — and we have just 48 hours to make our voices heard to stop this travesty.
Right now, companies and investors from around the world have their eye on Australia, with dangerous plans to double Australian coal exports and triple carbon emissions over the coming years. These plans will lead us straight to climate catastrophe.
But there’s still hope: Expressing deep concern about these plans, UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee has threatened to place the Great Barrier Reef on its ‘in danger’ list, which would place significant pressure on the Australian Government to stop these ports from being built. This month, the committee will vote on whether to continue this pressure. And we need your help to make sure they make the right decision.
We know that this decision matters. The Australian Government doesn’t want to be shamed over its treatment of one the world’s most precious natural icons. And potential investors in the coal port expansion have directly cited UNESCO’s concerns as reasons for not financing this project.
To date, UNESCO has done everything it can to stand up for the Reef, and in turn our climate. But the Australian Government, and the coal industry, will be putting significant pressure on them to back down. That’s why we need to show UNESCO that we support their efforts.
Our best chance of stopping this dangerous plan from moving forward is to create a global chorus of voices joining together to urge UNESCO to protect the reef and our climate.
Add your voice to this combined global call to action, and our friends at the World Wildlife Fund for Nature will make sure your voice is delivered to delegates in Doha.
