Europe continues to be taken hostage by destructive fossil fuels and the companies who profit from them, according to Friends of the Earth groups protesting at an informal meeting of European energy ministers in Amsterdam today.

Our world is already experiencing man-made climate change, including here in Europe. The overconsumption of resources is contributing to the climate crisis and increasing social inequality within and between countries.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe believes the rich industrialised countries most responsible for the climate crisis, including Europe, must act first and fastest to combat it in ways that do not deepen social injustice.

 

Real solutions to climate change are available. We are working to build and strengthen a movement for climate justice and to promote genuine solutions to the climate crisis.
