Climate Crisis — Non-profit organizations

Some non-profits to whom we (my family and I, through my research) donated in 2019, in the hope of helping to counter the Climate Crisis:

Canada: — they go “to court to defend nature, combat climate change and fight for your right to a healthy environment.” — “Through evidence-based research, education and policy analysis, we work to protect the natural environment, and help create a sustainable Canada.” — I support Plan in order support children’s rights and equality for girls; that, in turn, partly because of its effects on slowing world population growth. — “Foundation for Environmental Stewardship (FES) is a youth-led, youth-serving sustainable development organization… As the final generation that can solve climate change, FES empowers young Canadians to create a more inclusive, equitable, prosperous, and sustainable future.” — “The Citizens Environment Alliance (CEA) is a non-profit, grass-roots, international, education and research organization. We are committed to an ecosystem approach to environmental planning and management.” — “CAP’s mission is to help municipalities become sustainable, resilient, vibrant communities where resources are used efficiently, the air is clean to breathe and greenhouse gas emissions are minimized.” — “A member based environmental charity in Nova Scotia taking leadership on critical issues from biodiversity to climate change to environmental justice.” — “Friends of the Earth Canada stands on guard for Mother Earth and her people — taking action to confront polluters, holding governments to account for their promises and insisting they enforce laws… We stand in solidarity with vulnerable people and communities to confront the impacts of climate change and toxic pollution.” — “The Pembina Institute is working to solve today’s greatest energy challenges — reducing the harmful impacts of fossil fuels while supporting the transition to an energy system that is clean, safe and sustains a high quality of life. We provide our expertise to industry and government leaders, and we advocate for a strong, science-based approach to policy, regulation, environmental protection and energy development.” — Formerly USC Canada. “We help you contribute to a global movement of farmers fighting for justice, health and sustainability.” — “East Coast Environmental Law envisions a future in which innovative and effective environmental laws foster flourishing ecosystems and healthy environments in Atlantic Canada for generations to come and enable all of us to access environmental justice equitably, free of barriers caused by colonialism, racism, and poverty… By engaging with diverse individuals, groups, and communities in our region, we work to ensure that environmental laws and policies throughout Atlantic Canada are founded on responsible, transparent, proactive, and inclusive decision-making.”

USA: — “The Union of Concerned Scientists puts rigorous, independent science to work to solve our planet’s most pressing problems…. Climate change is one of the most devastating problems that humanity has ever faced—and the clock is running out.” — “350 is building a future that’s just, prosperous, equitable and safe from the effects of climate change… We’re an international movement of ordinary people working to end the age of fossil fuels and build a world of community-led renewable energy for all.” — Friends of the Earth works to “Defend the Environmental Protection Agency and strengthen other agencies’ work to protect public health from attacks by corporate polluters…Protect organic agriculture and work to make sustainable and healthy food available to all…Promote clean energy solutions that are community-controlled and help alleviate poverty…Support community efforts to protect our oceans from fossil fuel projects, including export terminals and coal plants.” — “Rainforest Action Network preserves forests, protects the climate and upholds human rights by challenging corporate power and systemic injustice through frontline partnerships and strategic campaigns. RAN works toward a world where the rights and dignity of all communities are respected and where healthy forests, a stable climate and wild biodiversity are protected and celebrated.” — I support the Malala fund in order support girls’ education throughout the world; that, in turn, partly because of its effects on slowing world population growth.
