“Climate change, like nuclear weapons, is a major global threat.

Bold and immediate action is needed to address the climate emergency.

Fossil fuels are the main cause of the climate emergency. Coal, oil and gas are responsible for nearly 80% of all carbon dioxide emissions since the beginning of the industrial revolution.

It is now imperative that we cooperate internationally to phase out all fossil fuel production and find safer and more effective solutions in three main areas: non-proliferation, global disarmament, and a peaceful and just transition.”
