They want governments to develop and implement a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty
Religious groups and activists around the globe have called for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty and just transition from non-renewable resources in a global campaign letter released ahead of the global climate summit in Egypt.
The open multi-faith letter released on Nov. 1 is the result of an initiative spearheaded by the Laudato Si Movement and GreenFaith, a grassroots multi-faith movement for climate justice, which together represents more than 1.5 billion supporters.
The letter called upon “governments to urgently commence negotiations to develop and implement a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty.”
“Government action has been painstakingly slow and catered too much to the reckless and deceptive fossil fuel corporations, preventing meaningful and timely climate legislation,” it added.
The group also called for a three-point global plan that will be delivered to the world leaders at the 27th Conference of the Parties of the COP27 summit in Egypt from Nov. 6-7.
The group urged world leaders to end the expansion of any new coal, oil or gas production, phase-out existing production of fossil fuels in a manner that is fair and equitable and ensure a global just transition to 100 percent access to renewable energy globally.
Mon. Jorge Eduardo Lozano, general secretary of the Latin American and Caribbean Catholic Bishops Council (CELAM) called upon governments to stop new fossil fuel projects in a press release.
“Corporations, governments and financial institutions must stop initiating new oil and gas exploration and replace fossil fuels with energy sources that are friendly to the planet and those of us who inhabit it,” he said.

One more step to the NWO.
My theory is that any organization with power will, over time, be corrupted by the left. A perfect example is the Walter H. Annenberg Foundation. Annenberg was as conservative as they get, but his foundation financed Obama’s public-school initiative. That was about as left as you can go and not slaughter people.
Clergy are not educated in science. for the most part.
Without fossil fuels the world would starve. Period. Take their advice and possibly billions would die of starvation.
As a matter of fact there is controversy over whether “”fossil” fuels are even from “fossils” at all.
If they were why is there methane on other planets and moons?
Same for the US Council of Churches and World Council of Churches.
Well manmade global warming is a religion, so it is not very surprising that they’re trying to create a global theocracy.
Annenberg conservative? An owner of the Philly Inquirer?
I’m not joining their new religion. Ever.
Really? No Christian should think we need to fight climate change and should see right through this farce.
I will not comply.
Don’t forget the New Economy people
No one more step until China matches what we’ve done
Those are the followers of men.
No true child of God believes in their false idols.
We can’t explain it, but we want a treaty!
