Letter to President Biden: Declare a Climate Emergency

MiCAN, along with 425 other groups, called on the Biden administration to declare a climate emergency, protect frontline communities and workers, and advance its commitments to “transition away from fossil fuels” to a just and renewable energy future.

Biden letter

Specifically, the letter urges the administration to:

1. Declare climate change a national emergency under the National Emergencies Act (NEA) and advance the end of the fossil fuel era.

2. Declare climate change a national emergency under the Stafford Act and re-imagine FEMA to be an engine of the just and equitable energy transition.

3. Redirect all agency funds towards renewable energy and away from fossil fuels to build back fossil-free in impacted communities.

4. Establish high labor standards to protect workers against extreme heat, wildfire smoke, and other climate emergencies.
