Vanuatu the first country calling for treaty to restrict fossil fuels
The story tries to tie together a few important parts to this. The @Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty Initiative initiative is a campaign to mainstream this idea. The @The Beyond Oil & Gas Alliance is led by Costa Rica and Denmark (Quebec is a member too) and is important too
There's also this very cool tool that offers unprecedented transparency into fossil fuel reserves and emissions. With nuclear non-proliferation transparency about stockpiles was critical. You can think of this in a similar vein says @Tzeporah Berman fossilfuelregistry.org
This week @Oil Change International published a report looking at what BOGA can do to stay relevant. Lots of interesting info here that could help prevent the alliance from turning into a space for countries to greenwash themselves priceofoil.org/content/upload…
We know Canada is not in favour of BOGA. Documents I got through an ATIP said BOGA “is not in Canada’s interest, as its aim to phase out the oil and gas sector conflicts with Canadian policy ensuring the sector has a sustainable role in a net-zero world.” Still Quebec joined.
