Leaders - fund our climate future!
To Commonwealth leaders and finance ministers:
As concerned citizens, we call on you to commit the long-term funding beyond 2020 needed for a strong global climate deal in Paris, and honour your pledges to stop funding fossil fuels. Richer countries must announce ongoing support to poorer nations so they will be able to invest in clean energy and cope with the impacts of climate change. The whole world must work together now to get a planetary agreement and stop the devastation that threatens us all.

Every minute governments back fossil fuels with millions of dollars, but big polluter nations claim they don't have funds to aid the most vulnerable countries dealing with floods, droughts and storms.
Now poorer nations say if they can't count on the money, they can't sign up to a global climate deal due to be finalised in weeks. It is a deadly deadlock, but if enough of us demand our public funds shift from dirty energy right now, we could unlock the finance to help those most in need.
Right now Heads of Government from the Commonwealth are meeting in Malta to try and find a solution. Let's get one million of us behind this push -- we'll deliver our call to the key leaders to expose the lie and shame them into action.
