Urgent: Save Rio, Save the Planet



Over a million people have called on world leaders to end fossil fuel subsidies at the Rio Earth Summit, but our leaders have so far failed to deliver. Now, the only chance to save the talks from disaster rests with Brazil's Dilma -- sign this urgent petition calling on her to emerge a planet hero and end the polluter payouts!

Over a million people have called on world leaders to end fossil fuel subsidies at the Rio Earth Summit -- a no-brainer policy that could take one trillion tax dollars from Big Oil and reinvest it in green energy. But they've failed to deliver -- even with the backing of the EU, the US and most G20 countries! The talks end in 48 hours. Now is our chance to save them and the planet's future.

Brazil's President Dilma is hosting the summit and has the power to reopen discussions and demand a timeline for ending polluter payouts, but she is considering walking away with the weak language presented by a team of bureaucrats. We can stop her in her tracks.

Dilma has 2 days to emerge as a global climate hero. Sign this urgent petition now and forward to everyone -- at 500,000 signers, Avaaz will deliver it straight to Dilma's hands and run an urgent, hard-hitting ad in the Financial Times:

In the last 2 weeks, we've already made huge strides towards an end to fossil fuel subsidies. Together, we've:
  • Unfurled giant trillion dollar bills with our friends 350 on beaches in Rio and in Los Cabos that garnered the attention of major media across the globe and delivered a 1 million strong call to end harmful polluter subsidies. Trillion dollar bill image
  • Delivered a petition with over 750,000 signers directly to UK Prime Minister Cameron and the Mexican chair of the G20 summit.
  • Massively impacted the vote in a UN poll -- making fossil fuel subsidies the top priority for the Earth Summit. We won with over 66% of the vote!
  • Flooded the Mexican and New Zealand environment ministers with messages calling on them to push for an end to polluter payouts.
  • And our team on the ground in Rio and Los Cabos has tirelessly lobbied politicians -- attending dozens of meetings with high level officials from key countries.
The stage is set and Dilma has the perfect solution to turn the talks around: a clear and timely end to fossil fuel subsidies. We only have 48 hours for this final push to action --- click below to sign: http://www.avaaz.org/en/save_rio_save_the_planet/?bVKqadb&v=15348 The movement to end fossil fuel subsidies is at a tipping point. Over 1 million of us signed petitions calling for action, from Rio and Delhi to London and Sydney. As we enter the 11th hour of the Rio Earth Summit, let's continue to push until we win!     With hope, Iain, Antonia, Jamie, Emma, Ricken, Diego, Pedro and the rest of the Avaaz team MORE INFORMATION: UN environment haggle runs into problems ahead of summit (France 24): http://www.france24.com/en/20120618-un-environment-haggle-runs-problems-ahead-summit Rio+20: anger and dismay at weakened draft agreement (The Guardian) http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/jun/19/rio-20-weakened-draft-agreement #EndingFossilFuelSubsidies in Pictures, Video & Tweets: Why Rio+20 Needs to Act (Huffington Post) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jake-schmidt/endingfossilfuelsubsidies_b_1607288.html G20 Fossil Fuel Protest Video (Reuters): http://in.reuters.com/video/2012/06/19/g20-fossil-fuel-protest?videoId=236062951&videoChannel=117460 Activists hail success of Twitterstorm (The Guardian) http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/jun/18/twitter-storm-fossil-fuel-subsidies?newsfeed=true Update on #EndFossilFuelSubsidies Proposals at Rio+20 (350.org Blog) http://www.350.org/en/about/blogs/update-endfossilfuelsubsidies-proposals-rio20 Negotiations text "an epic failure" (Greenpeace) http://www.greenpeace.org/international/en/press/releases/Greenpeace-comment-on-state-of-Rio20-negotiations-text-for-adoption/ Latest text of the Rio+20 conference http://avaazpress.s3.amazonaws.com/295The%20Future%20We%20Want%2019%20June%202.45am.doc
