TCD: Endorse the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty
We, the undersigned, ask Trinity College Dublin to publicly endorse the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty to secure a future on habitable planet for all of humanity.
Why is this important?
The Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Initiative The burning of fossil fuels is the prime reason for the exacerbation of the climate crisis and – already today – responsible for one in five premature deaths worldwide. The Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty Initiative calls for a global treaty that would govern the phasing out of fossil fuels in line with the 1.5 degrees goal agreed upon in the Paris agreement. The treaty has been endorsed by the European Parliament, the Vatican, Vanuatu, Tuvalu, the WHO, 70 cities and subnational governments, 101 Nobel laureates, and over 3000 scientists and academics.
