EU-US trade deal will unleash oil sands and fatally undermine climate efforts

The prospects for a meaningful agreement at the UN climate change talks…are bleak. As a result, so too are the prospects for the 100 million more people predicted to be living in poverty by 2030 as a result of global warming…the richest countries steadfastly refuse to meet legal commitments…preferring to uphold the desires of all-powerful corporate lobbies…any steps to halt runaway climate change will be wholly undermined by…the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)…The trade deal’s central mission is to remove “non-tariff barriers”…a key aim of TTIP has been to destroy regulations that prevent high-polluting tar sand crude oil from entering Europe…if the tar sands are exploited as projected, it will be “game over for the climate”…Regardless of the outcomes of talks in Paris, without a fundamental change to our corporate-led system, we will soon start counting the cost in the millions of lives lost in the global south.
