Amnesty, Greenpeace say, to protect human rights "requires urgent shift to 100% renewable energy for all"

"Protection of human rights from climate change requires urgent shift to 100% renewable energy for all", 8 Dec 2015

Amnesty International and Greenpeace International call on all governments to protect human rights by including making respect for human rights an explicit purpose of any agreement, while agreeing to phase out fossil fuels and deliver 100% renewables for all by 2050... 

Governments must speed up this change here in Paris to phase-out of fossil fuels by 2050 through a just transition towards 100% renewable energy, as well as the protection and restoration of forests and other ecosystems.

So far, however, States are still failing to take sufficient action on climate change... The human rights consequences of failure are stark... 

...States must take all reasonable steps within their power to reduce carbon emissions from their countries within the shortest possible time-frame nationally, and through international agreement... Human rights therefore cannot be protected unless governments phase out fossil fuels... The shift to 100% renewable energy by mid century can and must be carried out in a manner that is just and complies with human rights standards.
