A new plan to save the planet

To all G8 and G20 leaders:

As concerned global citizens, we urge you to honour your previous commitments to end taxpayer handouts to the fossil fuel industry, and go a step further by re-directing that money into green climate solutions instead. To save our planet we need a game-changer now -- we call on you to first lead by example, and then make ending all polluter payments the top global priority for the Rio Earth Summit.

This weekend, the eight most powerful leaders in the world will meet at the G8 summit and could agree to a plan that could literally stop climate change!

It’s crazy, but right now, our governments give nearly $1 trillion a year of our taxpayer money to Big Oil and coal to destroy our planet.
Key leaders, including President Obama who is hosting the G8, have already agreed to stop these polluter payments. Now, if we demand they act on their word and divert this huge sum into renewable energy, experts say we could actually save our planet!

It's a simple no-brainer that our leaders have already agreed to. Let's hold their feet to the fire, and push President Obama to lead the world's largest economies to turn these polluting subsidies green. Sign the urgent petition on the right and share with everyone -- a massive campaign now can force them from talk to action.
