The vision statement reflects a growing recognition that much larger amounts of electricity will need to be produced to decarbonize the transportation and other sectors of the economy. The vision statement calls for a reimagining of the region’s wholesale electricity markets; the development of a grid that relies less on big power plants and more on local wind, solar, and battery projects; and a new governance structure for the regional grid operator. ...

Despite all the chaos and anxiety of 2020, something special happened this week: JPMorgan Chase & Co. committed to align its business model with the Paris Climate Agreement — including all the loans it makes.

;

This is a big testament to the years of activist pressure that Chase has finally moved. Read more about the announcement here:
;

It’s a significant step to, especially for the world's largest funder of fossil fuels. But as our country burns and the Amazon dies, we need leaps, not steps. This new commitment doesn’t stop Chase from providing loans to coal companies. It doesn’t stop Chase from doing business with tar sands companies that are violating Indigenous peoples’ rights. It doesn’t stop Chase from loaning to fossil fuel companies that are still aggressively expanding their operations.

Chase’s announcement is a big deal — but it is nowhere near enough. Can you take 3 actions today to demand that JPMorgan chase follow up this announcement with immediate action to Stop the Money Pipeline?

● Call Chase CEO Jamie Dimon at 212-270-1111. There’s a short call script you can use here.
;

● Email Chase executives and board members to demand that they follow up this announcement with immediate action. There is a template email and the email addresses of Chase senior decision makers here. All you need to do is copy and paste the message, and email it to these top two decision makers at the world’s largest funder of fossil fuels.
;

● Click here to Tweet at Chase and spread the word about the announcement — and its shortcomings.

There is no doubt that the only reason Chase is starting to act on climate is the pressure it’s feeling from the climate movement. Lets keep it up until actions to Stop The Money Pipeline Massachusetts start to match Chase's lofty words.

Chase, #DefundClimateChange & #StopTheMoneyPipeline Now.
