We Don’t Have Time partners with UNDP to urge world leaders to end fossil fuel-subsidies

We Don't Have Time and the United Nations Development Programme need your help ahead of the UN COP26 meeting. If we all come together, we can make a huge difference.

Did you know that all our governments around the world actively supports the destructive fossil-fuel industry with $11 million in subsidies — per minute! That needs to end if we are to at least have a chance of achieving the goals in the Paris Agreement and avoid the worst effects of the climate crisis.
Today, October 27th at 00:01 AM EDT, we will help our partner, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) launch the global campaign #DontChooseExtinction to urge our world leaders to abolish all fossil fuel subsidies.

        Finance are have two ways..investment and subsidies according to your all set terms.. To endup subsidies definitely it needs to stop Finance to those companies..secondly the thing which I suggested is to setup industry of fossilization of water in lab to create fuels of needs..these Finances are not a one day collective show..we have to spread it all investors to slow down your finances to establish companies for fuels..and give them Finances to set their expansion industry to set on water consumption to fossilize it at industry level..there are several industry around world we can do tie-ups to provide knowledge, resources and informations to collect fossils and to use it for expansion of expected industry at low costs..and gradually we are able to stop all subsidies to companies.. Our next program will be then to stop excavation completely from deep of earth and make all requirements of you in your industry..for that they can spread their franchise to all over world..how much they can do by themselves and how much financers and investors or bankers can Finance to the person to setup this industry everywhere..it can do complete water solutions all over world and give fossilized fuels too..one thing is need to watch of carbonated water will again not need to throw and needs to recycle it again..I think complete world will agree to give a part of budget for this purpose in their country to setup industry..and bankers can easily Finance it..with support of current companies expanded according to this program..I also suggested to Adani here to do..if he can or we together can collect money from IPO or from settled industries to setup this industry with issuing of their shares on that program.. Thank you.

          In case of Industries involved in Fossil fuels generation will face economic deficiency, which will create unemployment..Buildings and housing structures needs to work for development of other energy resources..Take water from there not fuels..and make it fossilized by developing laboratories and factories..sea will give you lots of water to fossilized it..city wastes are free to consume those water to fossilize..set industry at this level around world..don't excavate inside energy but make it in your Industry and set it around world.. This suggestion of our NGO may also help you to create energy from same construction but uses are not in deep of water..every city of world give you wastes to fossilized those huge water tanks in your labs..

            What our NGO had specially done is, earth given free sky with full of energy for development of water resources for Gulf countries, European countries and African countries to cut subsidies and investing sectors of UN and elsewhere around world to replace fossil fuels consumption to full fill requirements of energy for countries..

                    Eco-Sense Greetings, Involved with Earth Day Network since 2000. And much before as recipient of 1992 Earth Day SD Library Gift from UK, Founderr Director, ETI KSPCB DANIDA 1995, Planningf Member UNU IC MFA IBS 2000 my frank inputs are : 1. Global Conscience is missing in National Leadersa. They must be appealed to take suitable action for immediate . summary, " We need Money /Technology for Climate Adaptation and Survival". Poorest of poor demand. Subsidies for Fossil fuels as per Scientisrs are not justified. It is important that each leader appreciates that, is there is life, living is there and where do we take the living, if a small variation in temperature can disrupt agriculture, water supply, 2. Furrther, the throwaway culture must end. Right to Repair legislation is pending in US. 3. Design to fail Corporate strategy is looting through Communication gadgets which become defunct in few months, 4. Over 100 community led local climate resient best5 practices ( www.iied.org) are indications of right way. It must be 200 B US$ support. 5. The number one business is drug trafficking and war and defence industry. 6. Inequality challenges well being UN Hq acknowledge the social Engineer Dr Ambedkar. 7. The recent report of World Bank giving 150 B IUS $ loan to African countries and WHO mentioning only less thah 12 percent of the global population Vaccinated. Nothing short of a global campaigns led by Civic Societies can make a difference. If 74K nuclear aresinal in early 1980s could be brought down to 14K (UNIDIR) the real power of civic societies and climate and professionals groups can make a difference. Meeting such as COP26 are happening. and going to happen. I am for a wide sharing of scientific evide to students and citizens all over the world in local dilalectic may the spirit of Eco Sense live through. With best Space Eco Litercay greetings.

                          The issue you raised in your programs. Debates and contracts are very important issues for the purpose of pointing the drawbacks and to work in different manners related to using fossilized fuels consumption around world..should to endup now.. It gives me at this time a pleasant moment again to think In a calm ways for the world needs of work to do, while reading your mail.. It was also objections of earth to restrain this part of consumption of resources of earth in its existence for solar system power supply of life every where in universe..it may reflect bad to all people upon earth..like more carbons in air and loss of energy plus water purity to reflection I'm climate..that could be change either in global warming and dryness because of congession of those particles. Which are not allowed to be in air more than requirement of its in atmosphere..it may directly harm to the lungs and breathing system of all people around world.. So it was my first issue raised in previous messages through social media to restrict in all manners of consumption of earth resources more..like coals, oils and other things like gold or etc.. So I am very heartful to discuss about all these topics,  not only discussion but we suggest you too to your group and UN , what will be the way to do different types of works to live upon earth healthfully and with full of securities and we will work upon it everywhere around world..where it is needful to do as well as in India too.. We can join, through our organization Samaj vikas sansthan in your organization to support you better ..while we have lack of technical and infrastructure support base here, but whatever we can do, we do and suggest to you.. Because it all are our global responsibility to find out what things are going wrong in our planet and what we can do better for earth, definitely, we need support of each other to share knowledge and experience to work in officially fruitful ways.. Well we try to join more and more seminars and programs of yours.. Thanking you to invite us..

If fossil subsidies would end, that would primarily be a change of mindset, so the most important step, but not enough. Unfortunately, we've been asking for half a century, virtually in vain. So, join Extinction Rebellion. By the way, The Netherlands 'financially stimulate' the fossil industry by some 17.5 billion euros annually (source: MeJudice) by letting the fossil industry save this much, not by direct payment.
