President Hollande and world leaders: put coal exports on the agenda at the UN climate negotiations, and put a moratorium on new coal mines.
President Hollande and world leaders,
We, as young people and concerned citizens, urge you to put coal exports on the agenda at the UN climate negotiations in Paris this year.
While world leaders discuss emission reduction targets, countries with large coal reserves are planning to massively expand their coal exports. If they succeed, the world will fail in its efforts to stop global warming.
Please help the world's governments negotiate a global moratorium on new coal mines.
We know that our world could be powered by 100% clean renewable, that doesn't run out or pollute our air - we can leave the coal in the ground.
Young people and future generations.
