SDG&E’s proposal to extend their Power Your Drive program would raise rates for the next 3 years to give SDG&E more infrastructure that they own and profit from. Please call in to tomorrow's meeting to express your opposition to the proposal for a program they’ve already overspent $25 million on and stand up for San Diego families!

Lots of laughter! Yes, Carbon Offsets are crap.

Following concerns over the sale of millions of dollars in meaningless carbon credits to corporations like JPMorgan, BlackRock and Disney, the Nature Conservancy says it’s conducting internal review!

A really important article. Points out that @UofCalifornia still owns 34,000 shares of ExxonMobil, despite declaring itself fossil-free in May 2020.

Evidence is here: https://t.co/H52gEj5Ek5

Trumpet from the rooftops. All ye students, staff and faculty who fought for fossil fuel divestment
@UofCalifornia

UC claimed to be fossil free, but it still owns 34,000 shares of ExxonMobil, plus other fossil fuel shares.

Really great to see this article from @UCSDClimate telling it like it is - UCSD's main strategy on climate currently depends on bogus carbon offsets.

But, pushed by our org, plans are being made to explore decarbonization. Yay!
