Four principles for climate justice
1 RICH TAKE RESPONSIBILITY
The burden of adjustment to the climate crisis must be borne by those who created it. This means:
2 LEAVE FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND
Climate change is caused by burning fossil fuels. We need to *stop it at source*. Leave the coal in the hole, the oil in the soil. Invest instead in energy efficiency and a massive expansion of *community-controlled renewable energy*.
3 FAIR AND EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS
Climate solutions should actually work, and not create further problems. This means:
4 EQUAL ACCESS TO RESOURCES
Natural resources must be conserved for the common good, not privatized and unsustainably exploited. *People’s sovereignty over land, energy, forests and water* must be upheld and reclaimed.
