In 2021 the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) posted a highly influential and succinct briefing to our nation's top leaders, including President Biden; Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives; Charles Schumer, Majority Leader, United States Senate; and Jennifer Granholm, Secretary of the Department of Energy, among others.  The briefing, Confronting the Myth of Carbon-Free Fossil Fuels: Why Carbon Capture Is Not a Climate Solution, mobilized dozens of climate-protecting organizations to urge these leaders to pursue 5 fundamental actions, all of which avoid the deployment of Carbon Capture and Sequestration, because of the fundamental ineffectiveness of CCS as a solution to the climate crisis. 

The Clean Energy Justice Convergence has reproduced this excellent letter in the context of this week's Clean Energy Ministerial in Pittsburgh from Sept. 21-23, 2022 to urge more organizations to send a message to the world's energy ministers to avoid Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS and CCUS) as part of their platform. Please review the letter here and sign on to endorse the 5 actions outlined in this letter, urging leaders to avoid CCS. We will send it to the Ministerial!
