2015 is on track to be the hottest year in recorded history, and this December world governments will meet in Paris for the biggest climate talks since 2009.
Right now, commitments by world governments are falling short of where the world needs them to be. We need way more ambition. We need action on a historic scale.
Our message is simple: Keep fossil fuels in the ground -- really, just stop digging -- and start building renewable energy. Turn off the old kind of energy that’s killing us, and turn on a renewable future. Do it now.
A commitment by world governments to keep 80% of fossil fuels underground would be the strongest signal yet that the days of dirty, dangerous fossil fuels are over. World leaders have a chance to do the right thing: stand with the people on the front lines of this crisis who are fighting for their lives. Stand with faith leaders, with scientists, and with the climate movement. Stand up against the industry that’s pushing us over the brink.
