A new line in the sand is needed. We support an agreement with a moratorium on any further expansion of the fossil fuel industry in rich countries, together with a fund to support renewable energy development in poorer countries to reduce the need for fossil fuels, paid for by redirecting the staggering $10m per minute that governments currently spend on fossil fuel subsidies. The best way to mark the 50th anniversary of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty would be to begin negotiation of its fossil fuel equivalent.Bill McKibben Founder, 350.org Naomi Klein Writer and activist Caroline Lucas MP Green party John Sauven Executive director, Greenpeace Craig Bennett CEO, Friends of the Earth Ann Pettifor Prime Economics Leo Murray 10:10 Continue reading...
