Tell U.S. climate negotiators to back airplane pollution cuts

Action: Stop Pollution

November 5, 2015   Action Alert ID# 294

 

If commercial aviation were considered a country, it would rank seventh after Germany in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. So why is this sky-high source of planet-warming pollution getting a free pass at international climate talks?

Ahead of this year's Paris climate summit, negotiators from the United States and other nations have been crafting a document that will form the basis for a final global treaty. Aviation and shipping have been addressed in that text since early on. But the latest version turns responsibility for these sources' pollution over to industry-friendly regulators -- the International Civil Aviation Organization and the International Maritime Organization.

That would be disastrous. In the past 18 years, the aviation organization has not adopted any measure to curb aircraft-induced global warming. And the maritime organization has rejected any need to cap shipping emissions.

The Obama administration's climate negotiators must strongly and publicly support international efforts to truly address aviation and shipping pollution in the Paris agreement.
