Tell Biden’s Climate team at the UN Climate Talks: hold the line for a fast and fair phaseout of fossil fuels

We thought we were closer than we have ever been to nations everywhere agreeing to phase out coal, oil and gas. But as it stands right now, the COP draft text is BAD: it won’t keep our planet and people safe. We need Biden’s Climate Team to hold the line for a fast and fair fossil fuel phaseout and keep pushing for a better resolution. 

The U.S. is vulnerable to public pressure, so we can make sure they hold the line for a fast and fair fossil fuel phaseout.  Join us on social media and help give them the final push they need to hold the line at this critical time in the negotiations.

Hey @ClimateEnvoy, the science is clear, and you claim to support a fossil fuel phaseout! Will you hold the line and make sure a fast, fair phaseout makes it into #COP28 final text?

Use some of the talking points listed below to craft your own post. 

If you only ask one thing ask this: 

Will John Kerry and the US hold the line for a fast and fair phase out of all fossil fuels at COP28?

Talking points for posts:

  • The science is clear, we need to rapidly phase out fossil fuel exploration and production to combat global heating. 
  • This year, climate disasters like the wildfires in Hawaii and tornados in Florida have destroyed communities and displaced thousands of people. We need a fast and fair phase out of fossil fuels now. 
  • The International Energy Agency has said we need an immediate end to all new fossil fuel production to keep the 1.5 degree goal alive. 
  • Will you commit to stopping approval for all new coal, oil and gas development? 
  • The science is clear – carbon capture cannot deliver. The only thing that will protect people and the planet is a full phase out of all fossil fuels by 2050, without loopholes! Will you commit?
  • John Kerry said Carbon Capture and Storage is not a silver bullet for climate. Will you hold the line and commit to a full phase out of all fossil fuels by 2050, without loopholes?
  • John Kerry has said he largely supports phasing out fossil fuels. So, Kerry, will you push to get a fast, FULL, fair phaseout into the final agreement of COP28?
  • World leaders at COP28 must deliver solutions to this man-made climate crisis. This is why we are demanding a phase out of fossil fuels.

Feel free to add any personal reason why this is important to you too!
