Tell the Fossil Fuel Industry They Are Not Invited to the Climate Table
You wouldn’t let the fox guard the henhouse, so why would you allow big polluters and those representing their interests to participate in creating climate change policy? This is the question that many government delegates are asking as we prepare for the U.N. climate talks.
Climate change-related events are already devastating communities, and the very future of our planet is on the line. Now is the time for strong action on climate. But the fossil fuel industry is doing everything it can to protect its profits, including making sure its interests are represented in the policymaking arena.
The good news is that just a few months ago, many government delegates raised the issue of conflicts of interest at the latest U.N. climate treaty meeting -- the first time this issue had ever been discussed in over 20 years of climate policy. Now we need to make sure that every government will stand with these leaders to address conflicts of interest in climate policy.
