JP Morgan underwrites major polluter and dirty energy “activist” Massey Energy as well as new coal plants developed by American Municipal Power, Alliant Energy and a subsidiary of American Electric Power.
Take action for something you believe in! Encourage JP Morgan to stop supporting dirty energy and give more support to clean energy.
“JP Morgan Chase’s CEO Jamie Dimon has drawn criticism from many environmentalists for his bankrolling of coal mining in Appalachia. The Sierra Club produced a video on Dimon last year, and RAN has been communicating with Dimon’s employees, telling them what is being down in their name,” Daniel Kessler of Treehugger reports.
Sign up with RAN to encourage JP Morgan Chase to change their ways on Thursday.
Mountaintop removal is the highly destructive mining practice that literally explodes the tops off of mountains. It harms homes and habitats. It’s destroyed nearly 1.2 million acres of Appalachian forest and mountains. It has buried over 2000 miles of rivers and streams with debris and pollution.
Instead of bankrolling this brutal, toxic and irreversibly destructive practice of destroying mountains for climate-killing coal, Chase should put their money on the right side of history.
It’s time for Chase to stop making millions from destroying Appalachia’s mountains.
