Energy Climate Petition
Energy Climate petition
The world is not on track to meet the target agreed by governments to limit the long-term rise in the average global temperature to 2 degrees Celsius (°C).Global greenhouse gas emissions are increasing rapidly and, in May 2013, carbon-dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere exceeded 400 parts per million for the first time in several hundred millennia.
According to the latest IEA report issued in May 2013, the energy sector is key to limiting climate change and through four energy policies can keep the 2°C target alive (‘4-for-2 Scenario’). Through this petition we urge policy-makers around the globe to;
· Adopt specific energy efficiency measures (49% of the emissions savings).
· Minimise the construction and use of the least-efficient coal-fired power plants (21%).
· Minimise methane (CH4) emissions from upstream oil and gas production (18%).
· Accelerate the (partial) phase-out of subsidies to fossil-fuel consumption (12%).
The world is on a once-off transition to sustainability. Take action and sign this petition today.
