ASES stands steadfastly with the brave people of Ukraine who are victims of Putin’s brutal invasion and unjust war. We advocate for an immediate and peaceful resolution to this conflict with strong economic sanctions against the aggressors including a U.S. government ban on Russian oil, gas, and coal. We support humanitarian and financial aid to the people of Ukraine.
Here at home, we can join in solidarity by accelerating the transition to renewable energy, divesting from non-renewable resources, and re-investing in a transformation to a global society powered by renewable energy that is justly sourced and equitably accessible to all.
Meanwhile rising prices in transportation fuels are a reminder that we need more clean transportation options globally. We advocate that the U.S. Congress enact laws that direct any tax revenues derived from increased earnings by the fossil fuel companies toward renewable energy programs that reduce our reliance on energy imports.
