Cities account for more than two-thirds of energy use worldwide. Ask the government of your city to take action against climate change. This may currently be an important way especially for the USA since the Trump administration is slashing on climate protection. New York´s Mayor Bill de Blasio has commited to reduce ghg-emissions this Jannuary. New York's pension funds will divest from the big oil and gas companies, and the city is suing the biggest of these corporations for the climate damage they've caused and the deception of the public.

Half of the palm oil imported to Europe is transformed into biodiesel. While fuel companies like Total, Shell and BP make billions in profits, palm oil deforestation is destroying pristine rainforest and carbon-rich peatland in Indonesia and Malaysia, pushing orangutans and other species to extinction. Energy ministers of all 28 member states are meeting on Monday in Brussels. We only have a few days left to convince the Commission and a few reluctant key member States like Germany, Spain, and Italy. Now’s the perfect time to get our voices heard!

A big Dutch company has patented melons, tomatoes, cucumbers and potatoes. This has been possible because of a flaw in European patent law. Raise your voice against patents on conventional breedings! We need to fight any attempt of big companies trying to iniquitously appropriate common goods as nature. Tell the social democratic federal attorney general in Germany to close the loophole.
