Texas Capital Calls for End to Fossil Fuels and Just Transition to Renewable Energy

The City of Austin has called for a global phase-out of fossil fuels and a just transition to renewable energy. Citing the health and safety risks of fossil fuel expansion, the Texas capital formally endorsed the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty proposal, becoming the first capital of a major oil-producing region to urge world leaders to negotiate a framework to manage a just transition away from fossil fuels. The largest oil-producing state in the United States, Texas has the most crude oil refineries and accounts for roughly 42 percent of the nation’s crude oil production.

          It is encouraging to see that the Texas Capital is taking positive steps to promote a just transition to renewable energy. A critical step to transitioning away from fossil fuels is to provide ample support and resources to assist those dependent on the fossil fuel industry in making this necessary transition. Without this crucial support, vulnerable communities that are most affected by the environmental and economic impacts of climate change are likely to be left behind. Additionally, we must ensure that any new infrastructure associated with the transition to renewable energy is built in a sustainable and equitable manner.

            This could be the first step to remove climate change from political rivalry, a hugely Republican state if the city of Austin can make this change hopefully other Republicans will see that saving the planet should be top of everyone's agenda..
