The Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty Initiative is spurring international cooperation to end the fossil fuel era.

The 1.5°C pathway is becoming increasingly narrow. The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report notes that the globe has already warmed by 1.2°C degrees. The Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres has said that the IPCC report must “sound a death knell for coal and fossil fuels before they destroy our planet”.

There is precedent for international cooperation in a time of crisis, and the current scale of climate disaster calls for a global solution that addresses the fossil fuel industry directly.

A bold solution like the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty would complement the Paris Agreement, a sort of dual model whereby both emissions and production can be tackled as part of a cohesive whole. This means no more new development of fossil fuels, the phase out of existing production, and developing plans to support workers, communities and countries dependent on fossil fuels to create secure and healthy livelihoods.
