Bipolar on Climate Change: the World Bank – while the WB urges action on climate change, warning that food battles will erupt worldwide as crops begin to fail dramatically, it still pursues policies that enable more climate change.
WB spent $1 billion in 2013 subsidizing exploration for natural gas, a fossil fuel, even though we can’t burn known reserves without triggering far more catastrophic climate change. Instead of boasting how they spend nearly 4 times more on clean energy than fossil fuels, they should cut the fossil fuel cord altogether.
And 75% of World Bank backed projects don’t evaluate climate risks. What gives, WB?
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here.

This is how YOU can make a difference.
