The People’s Dossier on 1.5°C contains the stories of communities fighting against fossil fuel projects and for a fast and just transition to 100% renewable energy. It outlines how climate change is currently impacting them and grounds their fight in the latest climate science.
Real climate leadership means power in the hands of people not corporations. It means economic opportunity for workers, and justice and dignity for frontline communities that are the hardest hit by the impacts of the fossil fuel industry and a warming world.
Energy companies must rise to the level of action that the climate crisis demands and keep their competitive edge in the rapidly changing energy landscape. We want the fossil-fuel dinosaurs to evolve into renewable energy champions, because their failure to evolve also means our collective extinction.
The 1.5 degrees Celsius agreed threshold is not just a number. It represents the fate of the 7.6 billion world population and the earth’s eco-system. Achieving or failing to achieve the 1.5 degrees mark will determine who will survive, how many islands will sink, who and how many will have food and shelter, what new diseases will threaten life.
