Demand Real Climate Leadership: Sign the People’s Lofoten Declaration

Sign the Declaration

I add my name as a signatory to the people’s version of the Lofoten Declaration, joining with thousands from across the world to affirm that true climate leadership requires a managed decline of fossil fuel production.

Global climate change is a crisis of unprecedented scale, and it will take unprecedented action to avoid the worst consequences of our dependence on oil, coal, and gas. It is therefore the urgent responsibility and moral obligation of wealthy fossil fuel producers to lead in putting an end to fossil fuel development and to manage the decline of existing production.

With time running out, we demand real climate leadership. Real climate leadership means:
  1. Standing up to the influence of the fossil fuel industry on our political processes;
  2. No new exploration, expansion, or financing of fossil fuel production; and
  3. Creating a plan to manage the decline of fossil fuel production and invest in a Green New Deal.
Continued fossil fuel exploration and production without a managed decline and a just transition is irreconcilable with meaningful climate action.

    Join over 500 organizations from 76 countries by signing on to the people’s version of the Lofoten Declaration. Together, we affirm that true climate leadership requires a managed decline of fossil fuel production and that any climate policy that doesn’t include the ending of fossil fuel expansion is critically incomplete.

    Global climate change is a crisis of unprecedented scale, and it will take unprecedented action to avoid the worst consequences of our dependence on oil, coal, and gas. Equally as critical as reducing demand and emissions is the need for immediate and ambitious action to stop exploration and expansion of fossil fuel projects and manage the decline of existing production in line with what is necessary to achieve the Paris climate goals.

    Clean, safe, and renewable fuels are already redefining how we see energy and it is time for nations to fully embrace 21st century energy and phase out fossil fuels.

    Sign the people’s version of the Lofoten Declaration, which affirms that it is the urgent responsibility and moral obligation of wealthy fossil fuel producers to lead in putting an end to fossil fuel development and to manage the decline of existing production.
