JPMorgan Chase is the world's largest funder of fossil fuels. Since the Paris Agreement was signed in late 2015, Chase has loaned $270 Billion to fossil fuel companies, including companies that are building new coal mines, new tar sands pipelines, and new fracked gas export terminals that are incompatible with curtailing catastrophic climate change. During the current COVID-19 public health crisis, Chase Bank chose to prioritize the dying oil industry over people's health, in loaning $1.25 Trillion to the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.
