350.org Statement on Senate Confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett. Oct. 26, 2020.
Natalie Mebane, 350.org US Policy Director, issued the following statement:
“Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation is a direct assault on our climate and our communities. This push of an anti-choice, anti-equality, anti-healthcare, and climate denier nominee is part of a dangerous strategy to further diminish our democracy, and prioritize fossil fuel executives and corporations, all at the expense of our health and safety.
“If confirmed, Barrett could ram through toxic and unnecessary fossil fuel projects, perpetuating systems of white supremacy, colonialism, and violence that Black, Indigenous, and communities of color bear the brunt of. From her refusal to acknowledge climate science, to her disturbingly intimate ties to fossil fuel groups, we demand Barrett immediately recuse herself of any and all cases concerning climate and the fossil fuel industry.”
