"Hi, my name is Selden and I am your constituent from Seattle. In the last 5 years, the world’s 60 biggest banks have financed fossil fuels to the tune of $3.8 trillion. Under the Fossil Free Finance Act, big banks would be required to align their financing with science-based emission targets and our obligations under the Paris Climate Agreement.
And US banks are the top fossil fuel funders of this climate chaos and the Fed can step in and steer us off fossil fuels fast. The Fed has a responsibility to protect our economy, including protecting our communities from climate catastrophe.
Every representative who claims to be a champion for climate action must sign on to this bill.
As your constituent, I'm urging you to join your colleagues and co-sponsor the Fossil Free Finance Act."
