The solution: efficiency, savings and renewables

The world does not need fossil fuels and nuclear energy. What we need is a big, visionary measure to turn around the global trend towards runaway climate change. 

This plan needs political will to make it happen.

  • Make sure emissions peak in 2015/16 and decrease as rapidly as possible towards zero after that,
  • Developed countries must make cuts of 40 percent on their 1990 carbon emisisons by 2020,
  • Developing countries must slow the growth of emissions by 15-30 percent by 2020, with support from industrialised nations,
  • Protect tropical forests with a special funding mechanism - forests for climate,
  • Replace dirty fossil fuel energy with renewable energy and energy efficiency,
  • Reject false solutions like nuclear energy.
