"Incremental steps are no longer acceptable in this time of climate emergency," says @emahlee "Almost 7,700 Amazon employees understand that Amazon must have a comprehensive plan that matches the scale and urgency of the climate crisis." @Amazon #AGM #AMZNClimate
"Speed is everything. Without bold, rapid action we will lose our only chance to avoid catastrophic warming. There’s no issue more important to our customers or our world than the climate crisis, and we are falling far short." -@emahlee @Amazon #AGM #AMZNClimate
"If we fail to rise to this moment, how we will tell our children that we knew we had such a small window to act decisively, to leave fossil fuels in the ground, but instead we helped Shell, BP, and others find and extract oil and gas more quickly?..." 1/2
"How will we explain the fact that we kept our emissions rising knowing that the Global South, Indigenous peoples, and communities of color were paying a terrible price? We can avoid the worst of what’s coming but we have to act. Now."-@emahlee @Amazon #AGM #AMZNClimate 2/2
@JeffBezos, will you stand with us, & adopt this resolution? Or will you ignore the greatest opportunity, the most important responsibility we’ve ever had: to take bold climate leadership when it mattered more than anything has ever mattered?” -@emahlee @Amazon #AGM #AMZNClimate
"Climate change is having disastrous effects in Bangladesh right now, " points out @IftikharRajit. "Many people have already had to flee their homes in the countryside as flooding and storms have destroyed their villages..." 1/2
"it’s unacceptable for one of the richest companies in the world to continue to take half actions as the consequences of its emissions put so many lives of the global poor at risk." 2/2

After smoke in WA & parents being in a NC hurricane, says @EbexSheppard, "It was last summer that drove home the need to act. That my recycling bin & Prius were not enough. Things aren’t going to get better until we all come together & do something transformative." #ClimateStory
"I believe @Amazon, a place where we are called to innovate, disagree, commit, & show our bias for action, we can use our scale & ingenuity to address this crisis in a way that leads the path for others....we are leading already & eager for Jeff Bezos to join us."- @EbexSheppard
I “couldn't look my son in the eye, knowing what I know about the urgency of the climate crisis today, & continue to say: 'we're already doing enough. This is good enough.' If you have kids.... They'll be living in the future that we create TODAY.” - @Ekwhitmire #ClimateStory
"Now seventy-six hundred of us & more say this together: we want to work for a company that is taking climate change seriously. We have one question, which we will ask again & again: Why is @Amazon still burning fossil fuel?" -
@wtfribley #AGM #AMZNClimate
"When smoke covers Seattle again this summer.

When fires destroy our data centers.

When storms shut down our warehouses.

Why is @Amazon still burning fossil fuel?
When we lose our houses to fire & flood.

When our customers are displaced from their homes, when their lives are threatened.

When a rapidly changing climate destroys crops, forces millions into poverty, & shocks the global economy.

Why is @Amazon still burning fossil fuel?
We will lead the way to a zero carbon future. We must start now." -- Weston Fribley
