Stop burning our rights! What governments and corporations must do to protect humanity from the climate crisis: report

The climate emergency is a human rights crisis of unprecedented proportions. It is already wreaking havoc on the lives of millions of people, deepening inequalities and discrimination, threatening the enjoyment of most of our rights and the future of humanity. States’ efforts to tackle climate change remain far below what is required to avoid the most devastating impacts for people and the planet. Despite their duties under international law, the vast majority of wealthy industrialized countries are failing to phase out emissions fast enough and to provide sufficient financing and support to developing countries for a just transition to zero-carbon economies and resilient societies.

Amnesty International’s Call Against Fossil Fuel

In this public statement Amnesty International calls on states to phase out of fossil fuels and says that the oil and gas price rises resulting from Russia’s invasion should not be used as an excuse to increase fossil fuel exploration, use and production, but rather is an additional reason to move to renewables and energy efficiency. It also announces and explains Amnesty’s support for a fossil fuel non-proliferation treaty.
