Colombia joins global push for Fossil Fuel Treaty at COP28

On the third day of COP28, Colombian President Gustavo Petro announced Colombia's alignment with an international coalition advocating for a fossil fuel non-proliferation treaty. It became the 10th nation and the second major fossil fuel producer to back this initiative and the first country in South America!
"I have no doubt which position to take: between fossil capital and life, we choose the side of life," said President Gustavo Petro

Once again, Colombia chooses to prioritise global environmental stability over economic concerns. Already last year Gustavo Petro had announced the end of fossil fuel exploration in the country.


Petro's impassioned plea showed the urgency of transitioning away from fossil fuels to avert a planetary crisis. This alliance, supported by entities like the World Health Organization and the European Parliament, marks a vital step towards a fossil fuel-free future, signalling a collective commitment to combat climate change at its source.

                    Being the 10th nation and the first in South America to support the treaty, Colombia sets an important precedent in the region. Looking forward to seeing other countries from the region joining the discussion.

                              Other nations should learn from Colombia that priorizing global environmental stability is more important

                                  Fossil fuels should just be done away with considering there are other clean avenues
