Environmental Justice Groups Host Response To False Solutions pushed at the UN Climate Ambition Summit
Lenape Lands, New York City, NY— National climate justice leaders from organizations representing impacted, frontline communities will be holding a press conference on Tuesday, September 19, 2023 during NYC Climate Week to demand real climate solutions, a Just Transition, climate reparations, and a phase-out of fossil fuels.
Frontline speakers denounce false solutions such as carbon capture and storage (CCS), carbon markets and offsets, climate geo-engineering, nature-based solutions, nuclear power, biomass energy and biofuels, hydrogen energy, and more, that are being pushed inside the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Ambition Summit and advanced by corporate, governmental, and big NGOs during Climate Week. Listen to those on the frontlines opposing these industrial techno-fixes and greenwashed climate schemes and demanding real climate action from the U.S. and Canadian governments.
