There is scientific consensus that we need to cut global greenhouse emissions drastically before 2020 if we are to avoid catastrophic climate change. Our energy campaign focuses on pushing the biggest banks in the U.S. to end their underwriting of coal, the largest U.S. contributor to climate change, while engaging, supporting and strengthening the movement of grassroots activists taking direct action for the climate.
Rainforest Action Network is working with more than 75,000 people who have pledged to engage in peaceful civil disobedience to oppose the Keystone XL pipeline.

Join Rainforest Action Network and the Keystone XL Pledge of Resistance to stop the pipeline.
Take action today.
