Join with Avaaz to call on our Government to cut airline pollution

 

What’s happening?

Governments are holding a landmark meeting very soon to agree to a deal to cut airline pollution starting 2020. If the airline industry were a country, its pollution would be bigger than that of the UK!! So far it has been flying under the radar, but now we have a chance to make sure it doesn’t fry our planet.

Unfortunately, major flight hubs like Australia and Russia are outrageously saying they won’t join — even though they just committed to the Paris climate agreement to end carbon pollution.

Avaaz’s efforts

This year is on course to be the hottest on record — our climate is spinning out of control but some governments are still spinning their wheels. Avaaz are working on a petition to send to our leaders to help them to make the right decision. Add your voice now to phase out airline pollution — once we reach a million, Avaaz will be able to send through the petition and hopefully make a real difference. Let’s call out this madness and ensure champions like the EU can hold other major polluters accountable.

How you can help

Join with Avaaz and send your message today to the global leaders at the ICAO meeting.

“As concerned global citizens, we urge you to keep your past promises to cap emissions growth from the global airline industry by 2020, and agree a roadmap for emissions reductions in line with the Paris Agreement goal to reach net zero emissions by mid-century. Do this fairly, supporting poorer countries and respecting local and indigenous communities’ rights to land and livelihoods. Climate change is already breaking records around the world, and fast growing airline emissions could trigger tipping points in our climate system that threaten everything we love — so act responsibly with the urgency this deserves.”
