Bankrolling Climate Destruction, by Rainforest Action Network

Check out this new report from our allies at Rainforest Action Network, written by REC Board Member Ben Collins.

From Ben:

When we started research on our new report, little did we know that Sandy would wreak havoc on its release day. But the sad fact is that storms like Sandy will become even more frequent and even more disruptive if we don't act fast to stem climate chaos.

Yesterday, Rainforest Action Network and BankTrack released our new report, Bankrolling Climate Disruption: The Impacts of the Banking Sector’s Financed Emissions, which spells out the swift action that the banking sector must take to account for and reduce its biggest impact on the climate: the emissions it finances. You can also read our blog post on the report here.
