Tuvalu urges COP27 to adopt global treaty on fossil fuels

The Tuvalu government has urged countries to establish a global treaty to phase out the use of fossil fuels.

Speaking at the COP27 climate summit in Egypt, Tuvalu's Prime Minister Kausea Natano said "the warming seas are starting to swallow our lands - inch by inch. But the world's addiction to oil, gas and coal can't sink our dreams under the waves".

"We, therefore, unite with a hundred Nobel Peace Prize laureates and thousands of scientists worldwide and urge leaders to join the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty to manage a just transition away from fossil fuels."

Natano explained fossil fuels are the primary cause of this loss and damage financing with coal, oil and gas fuelling 86 percent of the CO2 emissions in the past decade.
