Sign the petition: The U.S. must commit to a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty phasing out fossil fuels
Last month, the President of Vanuatu, an island nation in the Pacific, made history by calling on the international community to negotiate a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty at the UN General Assembly. They were swiftly followed by Timor-Leste, another Pacific Island nation gravely endangered by the climate crisis.
The Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty would be a binding international agreement to phase out fossil fuels while supporting dependent economies, workers, and communities to diversify away from fossil fuels. It would ensure 100% access to renewable energy globally and promote a just transition that leaves no one behind. Negotiating and signing a treaty like this would be a critical climate mitigation step on the path to a greener economy.
As the President of Vanuatu, Nikenike Vurobaravu, explains, “Every day, we are experiencing the debilitating consequences of the climate crisis…we are measuring climate change not in degrees of Celsius or tons of carbon, but in human lives.”
As a global leader, the U.S. government must join other countries to support a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty and commit to phasing out fossil fuel production and fast-tracking progress towards safer and more cost-effective alternatives.
We are stronger together. In advance of COP27, add your name and join in solidarity with the Pacific island nations calling for a fossil free future. Sign the petition: The U.S. must commit to a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty phasing out fossil fuels.Participating Organizations
