Why is this ban important?
We are in a climate crisis that is leading to a global human rights crisis of unprecedented proportions. After the latest devastating IPCC report, UN Secretary General António Guterres has warned us that we have "reached code red for humanity". Many communities, particularly those in Africa, Asia and Latin America, are already facing the devastating consequences of more frequent and intense droughts, floods, cyclones and rising sea levels, which have also reached Europe. Fossil fuel companies have known since 1957 that burning fossil fuels could cause increased CO2 levels. According to the Climate Accountability Institute, companies like Total Energies and Royal Dutch Shell, who are among the top 20 most carbon polluting fossil fuel companies in the world, continue to promote their dangerous businesses via advertisements and sponsorships.
