Can you imagine how big a deal it would be if an entire continent announced a plan to abandon the filthy fossil fuels that are choking our skies with carbon? It could really happen — and soon!

A Call for support from the global ciitizens network, Avaaz
Posted June 19th, 2019 on Niagara At Large
This is HUGE — Europe’s leaders are about to decide whether to END carbon pollution completely!
If they do it, it’ll be a giant leap towards a safer climate for all. But dirty energy blockers, like Poland, are already trying to derail the plan — and it’s up to us to defend it.
We urgently need a massive show of public support from the whole world for the plan — so let’s build one, and we’ll deliver it to all the key governments before EU leaders meet in days. Add your name now to join the call for 100% clean energy to meet the climate emergency!

Under the Paris climate deal we fought so hard for, countries are required to develop new plans to meet a goal to end carbon pollution by the middle of the century. The EU’s will be one of the first plans to be published — and experts say it will set the tone for other plans all over the world.
Let’s show governments there’s massive public support for 100% clean energy to tackle the climate crisis — add your name now and share widely!
Europe: End climate pollution!

Years ago, when our movement started campaigning for 100% clean energy, they said it was impossible. But we didn’t give up, and now we could be on the cusp of a huge victory in the fight for humanity’s future. Now it’s up to us to make it happen — and end the era of fossil fuels for good.
