The presidential race has finally been called: Joe Biden will be our next President.  Voters turned out in record numbers and polls show that climate action was a major issue.  Now we must get to work holding the next administration accountable to bold and urgent climate action:

Our job between now and Inauguration Day is clear: Put as much pressure on Biden to use the full power of the Presidency in his first 100 days to combat the climate crisis.

Our climate can’t wait, so neither will we. Will you sign on to our list of 10 Executive Actions we need the Biden Administration to take on day one?


We are in an indisputable climate emergency, and we need to act quickly to make up for the last four years of inaction.  If Congress remains divided, climate legislation will be difficult to pass. That’s why we’re focusing on the measures that Biden can take immediately to keep fossil fuels in the ground and build a just transition.  But without loud and vocal pressure, climate justice could once again be put on the back burner. Every signature helps us build public pressure for these actions.

10 Executive Actions we demand on Biden’s first day in office:

  1. End fossil fuel extraction on public lands.
  2. End crude oil and gas exports.
  3. Deny permits for new fossil fuel infrastructure projects and rescind federal permits for Keystone XL.
  4. Stop fracking through EPA pollution rules.
  5. Create a Just Transition task force.
  6. Investigate and prosecute fossil fuel polluters.
  7. Direct federal agencies to assess and mitigate environmental harms in low-income areas and communities of color.
  8. End fossil fuel subsidies.
  9. Use the Clean Air Act to set a science-based national pollution cap.
  10. Ensure a just and equitable recovery from climate-related disasters.


If you support these 10 Executive Actions, add your name and tell the incoming Biden and Harris administration to make them happen.

We know that even with a “climate friendly” leader in the White House, it takes a mass movement of people to stand up to the power of the fossil fuel lobby in Washington.

WEDNESDAY – Nov. 11th  – Wenatchee Interfaith Group – 1:00 PM: If you are interested in being a part of this meeting contact Merry Roy @ and she will send you an invitation.


Have seen this?  It’s really FUN!!!!

We are very lucky to have our power provided by our PUDs.  In many areas it is provided by “For Profit” corporations.  Our friends across the mountains are dealing with Puget Sound Energy (PSE) and are not very happy, check this out:

Puget Sound Energy (PSE) spins tricks that harm our climate and communities all year round. PSE continuously pushes fossil fuels, especially fracked gas.

They have shown their monster side — one that puts profit over people.

Take this quiz to see if you can catch PSE’s tricks

As election day looms, the stakes feel higher than ever. No matter the outcome, our work is not over. It’s easy to get down these days, but we know that education and action on local issues creates change. That’s why we’re offering something fun that can help us spread the news about Puget Sound Energy’s tricks. is supporting coalition’s goals to erase utility debt for low-income households, to extend the utility shut-off moratorium and to require utilities pay their fair share of costs incurred during the pandemic (additional work and context for the campaign can be found on Puget Sound Sage’s website linked here).  You may see’s logo in support of them.
