Today’s Action: Eliminate tax breaks and legal loopholes for big oil and gas!

Each year, like a giant dirty birthday present, billions of American taxpayer dollars go straight to propping up the oil and gas industries…the companies most responsible for American contribution to climate change.

And that’s not all: these companies also benefit from loopholes and laws that allow them to skip over cleaning up the pollution they create.

So what would happen if President Biden and Congress took away those tax breaks and environmental loopholes – and instead put those billions straight into progressive climate initiatives like building green energy infrastructure and jobs? Answer: a radically game-changing and positive turnabout in the fight against climate change.

Call or email your Members of Congress and demand they eliminate tax breaks, loopholes, and preferential laws that support big oil and gas!

For decades, Republicans have blocked this essential strategy in order to protect their wealthy fossil fuel buddies at the expense of our planet’s future. The effects of their denial and excuses can be seen in wild weather changes and sinking coastal cities across the globe, including Houston, Miami, and Charleston.

We have run out of time.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and urge them to eliminate subsidies and environmental loopholes for the fossil fuel industry!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to restore the consumer safety protections that Trump killed, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
