Climate disruption from the burning of fossil fuels is already responsible for major changes to our environment and our economy. The amount of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere is now higher than it has been in millions of years, and if we carry on at current rates of emissions, the future impacts here and around the world will be devastating. The science is clear: if we are to avoid the worst of these impacts, coal and unconventional fuels such as tar sands and fracked gas need to stay in the ground.

Our Campaigns

For years, we’ve stood up for a healthy climate in Canada by opposing new fossil fuel infrastructure. But parallel to this fight is to create a vision for the communities we want to live in.
British Columbia wants to build a natural gas industry that will rival Alberta’s tar sands. In the northeast corner of the province, fracking projects litter the landscape and poison First Nations communities.
To meet our goals and fend off climate disaster we need a plan to protect our precious wilderness, an escalating price on carbon, an end to fossil fuel expansion, and a just transition for workers affected by our new zero-carbon economy.

This Pacific coast is a beautiful and diverse ecosystem teeming with life. Into this idyllic picture steps Texan oil pipeline company Kinder Morgan, with a proposal to ship massive amounts of tar sands oil across BC and load it onto oil tankers in Metro Vancouver.
Wildfires. Hurricanes. Floods. Droughts. Heatwaves. In 2018, the climate crisis is impossible to ignore. Yet Prime Minister Justin Trudeau insists on building new tar sands pipelines – shoveling even more fossil fuel on an out of control fire.
