Happy Earth Day, Everyone!

Today will bring climate-related news and activity on countless fronts all around the world.

Much of the press will focus on the White House, where President Joe Biden’s global climate summit is unfolding now. Biden aims both to spur urgent climate action and assert US leadership in the climate space. And in case you missed it, the president made it official: by 2030, the US pledges to cut carbon pollution by 50 percent compared with 2005 levels. During the summit, other world leaders are releasing their own statements. Covering Climate Now urges our fellow journalists to scrutinize all these statements carefully—and measure them against what science says is necessary.

Meanwhile, if recent years have taught us anything, it’s that ordinary people taking to the streets are just as important as government officials in driving change—and today, activists young and old will encourage climate awareness and action. Swedish teen Greta Thunberg, a leader of the Fridays for Future campaign, will testify before the US Congress this afternoon on the need to eliminate government subsidies for continued production of fossil fuels—production that is incompatible with the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius. And activists with Earth Uprising International will live stream their “Youth Speaks Summit 2021” here.

One tried and true tool for raising awareness is film, and today brings a slew of them focusing on climate. Among the most notable are a NowThis and discovery+ special, featuring Vice President Kamala Harris and a host of other top Biden administration officials; the BBC’s and PBS’s in-depth profile of Thunberg and her activism; and the documentary The Race To Save The World, just reviewed in The Guardian and available digitally.

For journalists, today is an opportunity for recommitment to the climate story. After so many years when the media as a whole took a pass on the climate story, today virtually all of the biggest names in news clearly understand the importance of what Covering Climate Now calls the defining story of our time. News organizations are  hiring climate teams, launching important new projects, and beginning to tell climate stories with real energy and enthusiasm. Gauging by coverage of the Covid-19 pandemic, there’s still room for growth if journalists mean to treat climate change as an emergency. Today, many of our fellow journalists will cover heads of state and activist heroes. Tomorrow, and every day, we must commit ourselves to all the other climate stories, on every beat in the newsroom, about how the climate is affecting people’s lives everywhere and the challenge of preserving a livable planet for all.

Onward!

Executive Director

BULLETIN OF THE ATOMIC SCIENTISTS

Earth Day 2021

Climate change has been an important part of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ coverage since 1961 and it has been a major factor in our Doomsday Clock deliberations since 2007. While the Clock now stands at 100 seconds to midnight, we recognize efforts to reverse the detrimental effects of climate change as a bright spot on a darkening horizon.

We always encourage you to learn about man-made threats to our environment and how you might make a difference. Science matters, preparation matters, and individuals matter. 

This Earth Day, please support the Bulletin by subscribing to our premium magazine, which gives you access to 75 years of our archived content. Help us #turnbacktheclock.

CLIMATE CHANGE

Is the US nuclear community prepared for extreme weather? 

Climate change is bringing fires, floods, and hurricanes with increasing intensity. Those charged with oversight of US nuclear infrastructure and waste should be energetically guarding against known vulnerabilities. But so far the response has largely been one of inaction. Read more.

CLIMATE CHANGE

Big advertising to ditch Big Oil?

In the world of advertising, a new campaign takes place—against advertising. “Clean Creatives” seeks to get individuals in the ad industry to stop abetting misinformation campaigns, and even to stop taking business from the fossil fuel companies entirely. Read more.

CLIMATE CHANGE

Why we need to take back Earth Day

Earth Day carries a cultural framing that no longer fits the social movement associated with it, writes Columbia University professor Adam Sobel. Today’s climate movement explicitly recognizes, in a way the environmental movement of 1970 did not, that climate is a social justice issue. Read more.

Corporate greenwash stains Earth Day

Earth Day is here again. You can’t miss it. It’s not in the league of Halloween and Christmas, but the marketing push around the environmental consciousness day is hard to miss. Read more.

 

 

SIERRA CLUB

Dear James,

This Earth Day is unlike any other. We come together in the midst of so much: state-sanctioned violence toward Black and Brown people at the hands of police, a pandemic, a society sick from gun violence and racism, and our climate, clean air and water all under assault from the same people who want to divide us. But also? A powerful opportunity to shape the future by coming together. The things we do over the next several months are a once-in-a-generation chance to shape the fate of the planet for centuries. This Earth Day, we have to come together in a way we never have before as a movement that enlists all of humanity to save our planet.

Earth Day can’t just be any other holiday this year. That’s why it can’t just be one day: from Earth Day to May Day we are joining together for 10 days of intersectional, people-powered national action.

Over the next 10 days we're going to have trivia nights, art builds, and meaningful discussions on the intersections of racism and environmentalism.

We'll hear from community leaders building a resilient Gulf Coast, a performance from a Hamilton star, national youth activists, labor movement leaders, and experts working to protect our beautiful public lands -- and so much more!

And it all starts TODAY -- with a focus on the global call for climate action! Join us at 9:30 am PT / 12:30 pm ET on Thursday, April 22 for what world leaders can learn from India amid President Biden's climate summit for world leaders.

 

 

President Biden is kicking off a summit today that brings together world leaders to discuss global efforts to combat climate change. When he rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement, Biden sent a welcome signal that the United States would be reengaging with the world around climate diplomacy.

To truly grapple with the climate crisis, grassroots voices across the globe need to be at the table when world leaders are making decisions that impact our communities. That’s why we’re hosting a special Earth Day Facebook Live discussion with our partners in India, highlighting just some of the grassroots voices that need to be heard. RSVP to our first Earth Week event: a discussion about Global Grassroots Voices.

We have no time to waste. This is our moment to remake our economy and society to allow all to live safe, healthy, and thriving lives -- no matter your race, gender, background or zip code.

Thank you for joining us!

Eva Hernandez-Simmons
National Program Director
Sierra Club

NPG: Earth Day

More than 50 years ago the launch of the first Earth Day greatly influenced the thinking of NPG’s founders, who were convinced of the need to get people focused on the fast-paced rise in population numbers here in the U.S. They created Negative Population Growth only two years later in 1972.

NPG looks forward to joining with countless national and world-wide organizations in taking a good hard look at all we’ve accomplished together, renewing the “save the planet” fire within the hearts of global citizens, setting challenging new environmental goals, and moving forward to meet them.

Happy Earth Day, Dick!

Today we're thinking about all the courageous activists working to slow climate change, stop harmful development projects and protect the land, water and natural resources that vulnerable communities around the world depend on for survival. The grassroots organizations we support are committed to working alongside rural and Indigenous people to elevate their voices, protect their land and help them in the quest for a healthier, safer planet.

These communities are often the ones most affected by the dire impacts of climate change, but their perspectives aren’t considered when it comes to addressing the issue. When global leaders sit down to develop climate policy, their solutions must be shaped by the people suffering most from the climate crisis, and they must protect the right to land and natural resources for all. Here in the United States, we have an administration that’s open to progressive environmental policy — will you join us in asking President Biden to make sure the voices of Indigenous and rural communities are heard?
