Temperature below 1.5oC

We work towards and advocate keeping temperature increase to 1.50C and well below.  With the current global temperature of 10C from the industrial level, lives are already at risks.    

We advocate for a shift to 100% RE to ensure that temperature increase does not go beyond 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2040, by divestment from dirty energy and enhanced investment in RE/EE, phase out of existing coal plants and no to new coal-fired power stations, divestment on investment in fossil fuels and enhanced investment on RE/EE over time for national and local governments. In the context of climate justice, hydro and nuclear powers are not the solutions. Energy access will have to be responded by RE/EE with respects to human rights and all aspects of sustainable development. In keeping temperature well below 1.5 oC we advocate for all opportunities to ensure other greenhouse gases mitigation. This includes phase down Hydrofluorocarbons or HFCs.
