Sign the Petition: No Fossil Fueled Administration

Vice President Joe Biden, Biden For President

Joe Biden has put out solid plans to combat the climate crisis and create millions of good-paying, union jobs in a clean energy economy while keeping environmental justice central. However, those who have served on a fossil fuel industry board, enrich themselves as oil and gas advisors, receive funding from fossil fuel companies to espouse “reasonable” climate positions, or work with industry front groups should have no role in a Biden administration or campaign. Neither should fossil fuel backers on Wall Street, who have attempted to profit off pollution.

Biden/ Harris’ leadership on climate and environmental justice is why they must ban all fossil fuel executives, lobbyists, and representatives from any advisory or official position on the Biden/Harris campaign, transition team, cabinet, and administration.

Both Biden and Harris have signed the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge. A commitment from both to ban all fossil fuel executives, lobbyists, and representatives from your administration would also go far to assuage any lingering concerns about their climate commitments that may have been raised when the DNC dropped support for ending fossil fuel subsidies from the 2020 Platform.

To: Vice President Joe Biden, Biden For President
From: [Your Name]

We demand that you say no to fossil fuel lobbyists on your transition team and in your administration.

First, thank you for your plans to combat the climate crisis and create millions of good-paying, union jobs in a clean energy economy while keeping environmental justice central. Those who have served on a fossil fuel industry board, enrich themselves as oil and gas advisors, receive funding from fossil fuel companies to espouse “reasonable” climate positions, or work with industry front groups should have no role in a Biden administration or campaign. Neither should fossil fuel backers on Wall Street, who have attempted to profit off pollution.

Your leadership on climate and environmental justice is why we urge you to ban all fossil fuel executives, lobbyists, and representatives from any advisory or official position on your campaign, transition team, cabinet, and administration.

You’ve signed the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge. Please extend this pledge to your administration. A commitment from you to ban all fossil fuel executives, lobbyists, and representatives from your administration would also go far to assuage any lingering concerns about your climate commitments that may have been raised when the DNC dropped support for ending fossil fuel subsidies from the 2020 Platform.
