Ending the fossil fuel era

Fossil fuel companies are raking in the profits while wrecking the climate. The world urgently needs an exit plan from coal, oil and gas.

The Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty is a bold idea that's gaining support fast - from parliamentarians, academics, civil society organisations and citizens around the world who recognise the urgent need for a global effort focused on a fast, fair and managed phase out of coal, oil and gas.

 

  1. The Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty would do three things
    1. End new exploration and production of coal, oil and gas

    2. Phase out existing stockpiles and production of fossil fuels

    3. Accelerate a just and equitable transition to a zero carbon world
     

    Similar to other impactful international treaties that have helped manage the threats posed by nuclear weapons, landmines and ozone-depleting chemicals, a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty requires widespread global support.

Scotland has shown it can be influential on the world stage with its call for a Loss and Damage fund at COP26 and 27 - for the countries most impacted by climate change.  It broke the taboo among the rich countries and successfully got the proposal for the fund onto the agenda of the UN climate talks.

Scotland could again show climate leadership by publicly backing a global exit plan from coal, oil and gas.

Call on the First Minister to support a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty.
