Climate change impacts are already affecting people and the planet. The biggest impacts will be on the lives and livelihoods of the poor countries. The culprits are the rich and the developed countries including the United States. Transnational corporations are “exerting undue influence” on the political process in these key nations to delay international action on climate change.
The production and use of fossil fuel is at the heart of the problem –particularly the emissions of carbon dioxide from the burning of coal, oil and gas. The World Bank continues its fossil fuel financing binge, evading environmental standards and worsening poverty and pollution.
The Freedom from Debt Coalition (FDC), Philippine Movement on Climate Justice (PMCJ) and Jubilee South-Asia Pacific Movement on Debt and Development (JS-APMDD), headed a protest rally on Friday November 25, 2011, demanding the US to make a deep and drastic emissions cuts as a step towards a real climate solution. They also condemned America’s type of bullying to governments of south countries in pushing its agenda to make the World Bank the permanent trustee of the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
