People over Pipelines
Residents of Appalachia have been defending their communities from the construction of the dangerous and polluting Mountain Valley Pipeline for years. Now one of their local senators, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, is trying to fast-track the pipeline as part of a must-pass bill to fund the federal government. Watch how these residents turned activists have been forced to fight back.
Nothing Measured, Nothing Managed
Banks and financial institutions are promising to step up their game when it comes to the climate. But right now, there’s no way to tell if they’re responding to the crisis they helped create, despite the growing popularity of different a practice often called "Environmental, Social, and Governance" (ESG) criteria. Ivan Frishberg, Director of Impact Policy for Amalgamated Bank, and Marilyn Waite, who leads the climate finance work at the Hewlett Foundation explain why the industry needs to measure its portfolio emissions and create a reliable, transparent, standardized way of doing it. After financing so many fossil fuel projects, it MUST take responsibility. #YEARSproject
