Huge Victory for Indigenous Rights, Communities & the Climate – 350.org Statement on TransMountain Court Decision

WASHINGTON - In response to today’s Federal Court of Appeals decision, Clayton Thomas-Müller, Stop-it-at-the-Source Campaigner at 350.org, issued this statement.

“All I have to say today is thank you. To the Indigenous nations who have led this movement in since day one, to the countless organizers who helped to raise funds and support for these court cases and for the movement that has been relentless in shining a light on how broken Canada’s pipeline reviews are. Today is a huge victory for Indigenous rights, for communities and for our planet and this decision should send a clear message to Justin Trudeau that it’s time for him to get out of the oil business and get to work on building 100% renewable energy economy that works for all people in Canada.”

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.

350 is the red line for human beings, the most important number on the planet. The most recent science tells us that unless we can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to 350 parts per million, we will cause huge and irreversible damage to the earth. But solutions exist. All around the world, a movement is building to take on the climate crisis, to get humanity out of the danger zone and below 350. This movement is massive, it is diverse, and it is visionary. We are activists, scholars, and scientists. We are leaders in our businesses, our churches, our governments, and our schools. We are clean energy advocates, forward-thinking politicians, and fearless revolutionaries. And we are united around the world, driven to make our planet livable for all who come after us.
