Climate Change Organizations

  1. Climate Change Funding
Papers
  1. -Editorial: Environmentalists Need to Proceed on Long-Term Solutions (Grist.org)
      "But everyone on the left — and greens are on the left now — needs to think about how to make liberalism, including sustainability, a more vital force in American life. Short-term campaigns will never accomplish that." 02-15

  2. Biochar Methodology for Emission Reductions Near Completion (ClimateTrust.org)
      "The Climate Trust is leading the team effort funded by Blue Moon Fund to develop the Emission Reductions from Biochar Projects. The methodology completed the public comment phase in November 2013, with a tremendous response. The next and final phase before approval is the scientific peer review."

      "This methodology provides a way to quantify the carbon that can be captured in biomass during the process of burning in a low-oxygen environment, referred to as pyrolysis. Biochar has the potential to contain the carbon that would otherwise be released in the atmosphere in the form of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas. Under this methodology, the biochar is intended for use as a soil amendment, which when combined with a high nutrient material such as compost, can not only trap carbon long term (over 100 years) in the soil, but also greatly improve soil fertility, and even water holding capacity" 02-14

  3. Climate Reality Project (ClimateRealityProject.com)
      "Founded and chaired by Al Gore, Nobel Laureate and former Vice President of the United States, The Climate Reality Project has more than 5 million members and supporters worldwide. It is guided by one simple truth: The climate crisis is real and we know how to solve it." 09-12

  4. Corporate Interests Stall San Francisco's Green Power Plan (Truth-Out.org)
      "Community choice aggregation (CCA) is probably the most boring and benign-sounding name possible for one of the most radical policy mechanisms actually within reach today. Aggregation cuts middlemen utilities out of the process of deciding where electrical, gas, and heat energy come from. Most importantly, aggregation programs allow local communities to determine how ratepayer surpluses will be spent. Fitting the nonprofit, public purpose of aggregation, ratepayer surpluses are usually refunded as consumer savings. However, according to Fenn and other energy policy experts, the real transformative benefits of CCA - the litmus test, if you will - depends on whether ratepayer surpluses can be channeled into investments that are intended to green and localize the energy supply."

      "Community choice aggregation was Paul Fenn's brainchild. Deregulation of energy markets in the late 1990s wreaked havoc on states like California, but Fenn saw something few others did. Beneath the procorporate agenda that allowed companies like Enron to capture billions of dollars from the public and crash the power grid was a window of opportunity to create a radically democratic reorganization of the economy. It would require subverting the big energy corporations and utilities, however."

      " 'San Francisco is the most important city right now for fighting the climate crisis because we have this opportunity to do the community buildout of green energy through CCA.' " 08-13

  5. Environmental Defense Fund (edf.org)
      "We work around the world to lower carbon emissions, fight deforestation and encourage the development of clean energy technology." 02-14

  6. Greenpeace (Greenpeace.org)
      Greenpeace solutions for the climate includes:

      "Make sure emissions peak in 2015 and decrease as rapidly as possible towards zero after that"

      "Developed countries must make cuts of 40 percent on their 1990 carbon emisisons by 2020"

      "Developing countries must slow the growth of emissions by 15-30 percent by 2020, with support from industrialised nations"

      "Protect tropical forests with a special funding mechanism - forests for climate"

      "Replace dirty fossil fuel energy with renewable energy and energy efficiency"

      "Reject false solutions like nuclear energy" 02-14

  7. Greenpeace (Greenpeace.org)
      The vision of the International Biochar Institute includes to "help solve the global climate change crisis with the use of biochar to:"

      "safely and effectively draw down greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in stable soil sinks;"

      "alleviate GHG emissions associated with decomposition of waste from urban and rural sources; and"

      "offset fossil fuel use through high value bioenergy and bio-products." 02-14

  8. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC.ch)
      Provides reports on climate change. 01-09

  9. International Biochar Initiative (Biochar-International.org)
      The International Biochar Initiative's vision includes to "help solve the global climate change crisis with the use of biochar to:"

      "safely and effectively draw down greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in stable soil sinks;"

      "alleviate GHG emissions associated with decomposition of waste from urban and rural sources; and"

      "offset fossil fuel use through high value bioenergy and bio-products." 02-14

  10. League of Conservation Voters (LCV.org)
      "LCV works to turn environmental values into national, state and local priorities. LCV, in collaboration with our state LCV partners, advocates for sound environmental laws and policies, holds elected officials accountable for their votes and actions, and elects pro-environment candidates who will champion our priority issues."

      "If you care about the environment, 2014 will be a big year. From Keystone XL to holding climate change deniers accountable and implementing the President’s Climate Action Plan, the new year will be an important one." 02-14

  11. National Resources Defense Council (NRDC.org)
      "Climate change is the single biggest environmental and humanitarian crisis of our time. We must act now to spur the adoption of cleaner energy sources at home and abroad."

      "America's dependence on fossil fuels threatens our national security and is a major contributor to global warming and toxic air pollution. By investing in renewable energy sources such as the sun, wind and biomass, we can help solve the energy and climate crises." 02-14

  12. Nature Climate Change (Nature.com)
      Provides results of scientific studies related to climate change. 02-14

  13. The 350 Campaign (350.org)
      "350.org is building a global movement to solve the climate crisis. Our online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions are coordinated by a global network active in over 188 countries."

      "The number 350 means climate safety: to preserve a livable planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 400 parts per million to below 350 ppm." 02-14

  14. The c40.org Campaign for Cities (c40.org)
      "Renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, reduce reliance on fossil fuels and related emissions. Also, by requiring energy companies to regularly publish their CO2 emissions, some cities are driving competition for renewable-sourced energy over fossil fuel energy." This program includes the Clinton Climate Initiative Cities Program. 02-14

  15. Union of Concerned Scientists (UCSUSA.org)

      "To accomplish it, we must:"

      "Demand action from our elected leaders"

      " Take simple, practical steps to reduce our personal carbon emissions"

      " Aggressively fight misinformation about global warming"

      " Prepare our cities and communities for the growing impacts of climate change" 02-14
