SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

An international coalition on managed decline and just transition could function as an inverse OPEC. Rather than coordinating to stabilize oil markets, participating countries would be collaborating to secure an equitable, efficient, just, and smooth transition from the energy sources of yesterday to those of the future.


If we want  to transition away from fossil fuels at the pace and scale required to meet the climate challenge, while avoiding massive economic disruption and harm to the dignity and productivity of workers, countries need clear plans on how to move toward a fossil fuel–free future and effective ways of cooperating in this shared objective.
