Keep fossil fuels in the ground: a declaration for the health of Mother Earth

PeA_CF_bajo_sueloA declaration to be launched during the UN climate negotiations aims to draw attention to the need to keep fossil fuels in the ground and unburned, while supporting a just transition toward a clean energy future.  The declaration recognizes that “the extraction, transportation and consumption of fossil fuels has caused severe damage to the earth, air, water, and all forms of life; and is the number one contributor to climate change and massive species extinction. The damage is disproportionately borne by people who do not benefit from the economic and political systems that have caused them, who are not responsible for the crisis and who lack the adequate resources to adapt to a changing climate.”
