How?

Huge interests are delaying crucial reforms, essential to making energy consumption sustainable. Leading experts agree that:
- all subsidies for fossil fuels must be cut
- carbon emissions must be taxed realistically.

Together we can enforce these solutions, now! This is how:

1. Say YES

By saying YES! you give your imperative mandate to implement these solutions, now! If we do this with millions of Europeans together, politicians and businesses will be forced into action. They will do as #WETHEMILLIONS instruct. Because, after all, they depend on our loyalty - as voters and consumers.

In depth

Fossil energy is subsidized many times more than sustainable energy (1). And most of the biggest polluters, like the steel industry and airlines, do not pay pollution taxes. Experts agree that taxation should shift from clean to dirty energy. A start was made by taxing carbon emissions. But according to a study by the World Bank the pricing is wrong and unfair exemptions are made (2).

In the video below professor Van der Ploeg (Oxford University) discusses climate change, its consequences and the obvious solutions more at length. He explains why temperatures will rise and what the consequences will be if nothing is done about it. Streams of climate refugees will come to Europe, in far greater number than we have experienced so far. This calls for substantive pollution taxes, the proceeds of which should go back to the people, so that on average there is no change in the tax burden.

(1) A study by the International Monetary Fund calculates global fossil fuel subsidies at 6% of the world income. This is many times higher that subsidies for sustainable energy. See:
