July 2022 Update 7/1/22

We’d be remiss not to mention the Supreme Court curbing the EPA’s authority to establish carbon emissions caps… however the top line we want folks to remember is that the EPA can still regulate fine particulate matter and other dangerous pollutants instead, which go hand-in-hand with emissions. Supporting Executive Orders from President Biden can also make a huge impact, which is why we’ve joined the People vs Fossil Fuels coalition demanding exactly that.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the big projects we’re working on:

We are mobilizing this summer and through the fall, we will be in the streets here in the Bay Area and in Sacramento! Get ready to mobilze as we respond to SCOTUS and prepare for the election season. Join in Sacramento on August 13th – register today. Can’t make August? Sign up here for alerts about future climate actions across the state!

And, to call massive attention to the rapacious and cynical fossil fuel companies, 350 Bay Area is in the beginning stages of organizing a People’s Tribunal, putting a major oil player on public trial early next year. There will be expert witnesses, oiligarchs held to account, and lots of art and creativity abounding. If you’re interested in pitching in on the planning, email us and we’ll get you in the loop. We are working on a nationwide collaboration on this project, with other big US based 350 groups; stay tuned!
