Sign 350.org’s list of 10 Executive Actions we demand on Biden’s first day in office

The presidential race has just been called: Joe Biden will be our next President. Voters turned out in record numbers and polls show that climate action was a major issue. Now we must get to work holding the next administration accountable to bold and urgent climate action: Our job between now and Inauguration Day is clear: Put as much pressure on Biden to use the full power of the Presidency in his first 100 days to combat the climate crisis. Our climate can’t wait, so neither will we. Sign on to our list of 10 Executive Actions we need the Biden Administration to take on day one! https://act.350.org/sign/10-executive-actions/?source=em20201107-1-120-us&akid=134731%2E650261%2ErOAOdR

End fossil fuel extraction on public lands.

End crude oil and gas exports.

Deny permits for new fossil fuel infrastructure projects and rescind federal permits for Keystone XL.

Stop fracking through EPA pollution rules.

Create a Just Transition task force.

Investigate and prosecute fossil fuel polluters.

Direct federal agencies to assess and mitigate environmental harms in low-income areas and communities of color.

End fossil fuel subsidies.

Use the Clean Air Act to set a science-based national pollution cap.

Ensure a just and equitable recovery from climate-related disasters.

If you support these 10 Executive Actions, add your name and tell the incoming Biden and Harris administration to make them happen. We know that even with a “climate friendly” leader in the White House, it takes a mass movement of people to stand up to the power of the fossil fuel lobby in Washington. Under the Obama administration, we had to fight tooth and nail for every victory. But together, we achieved victories that many said were impossible – like putting a halt to the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines. But the stakes are even higher now, and we can't afford a return to Obama-era climate policies. We need to phase out existing fossil fuel extraction and implement a Green New Deal that protects communities, workers, and our planet. Contact: May Boeve, 350@350.org
