- The NYT analyzes the letter
- "The Daily" podcast discusses the impact of the Blackrock letter.
- McKibben's New Yorker piece on the connection of finance to climate
- The Climate Minute on Fink's letter in January

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
Thanks for listening.
