Paid to pollute

To G20 leaders:

As concerned global citizens, we urge you to disclose and end direct hand-outs to fossil fuel producers, and also start the phase-out of schemes that drive demand for dirty energy. We’re on the brink of a climate catastrophe, and stopping taxpayer gifts to fossil fuels would level the energy playing field overnight, spurring a worldwide surge in clean energy. Honour your previous commitments and make ending polluter payments the top global priority for the upcoming UN Earth Summit.

Paid to pollute
The world is being held hostage by fossil fuels. As our climate burns, these corporations use their record-breaking profits to spread lies about climate change, buy off politicians and lobby aggressively for tax breaks. But we can end their scam if we kill polluter payments -- the $600 billion our governments gift to these giants every year.

Next week we have a chance to draw a line in the sand -- the G20 finance ministers are meeting in Washington and we can meet them there with a massive global outcry calling on them to finally stop paying polluters billions in our tax dollars. These leaders have agreed to end black subsidies but failed to act, let's hold them to their word.

We only have five days! Sign the petition and tell everyone -- it's time to end polluter payments for good.
