Dear Anthony,

Our efforts to pressure fossil fuel companies is really having an effect. Earlier this year, ExxonMobil and Chevron finally releasing climate risk disclosure reports and ConocoPhillips agreed to disclose its lobbying efforts. And now, a prominent corporate responsibility group is securing responses from major fossil fuel companies in response to our recent Climate Accountability Scorecard. Our work to hold these corporations accountable for years of deception and climate impacts is working—unfortunately, it’s not enough. Just last month, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released their latest report showing that every fraction of a degree of warming we can avoid matters. The report calls for ‘rapid and far-reaching’ action. And we needn’t look farther than the fires currently rampaging through Californian communities to understand how urgent the situation is. We need to keep the pressure on fossil fuel corporations to make real change and take responsibility for the impacts of their business.  —Katy

El viento sopla de donde quiere, y oyes su sonido; mas ni sabes de dónde viene, ni a dónde va;
así es todo aquel que es nacido del Espíritu. Juan 2:8
