An annual United Nations report published Tuesday on current and estimated future greenhouse gas emissions shows the “urgent need for supply-side action” to combat the climate emergency, according to the advocacy group Food & Water Action.
“We have no time left to waste on neoliberal market tweaks that only seek to saddle working families with paying the costs of climate action.”

Mitch Jones, director of Food & Water Action’s Climate & Energy Program, released a statement responding to the new Emissions Gap report from the U.N. Environment Program (UNEP), which warned that global temperatures are on track to rise as much as 3.2°C by the end of the century.
“The most urgent task for policymakers, political leaders, and the global climate justice movement is to demand solutions that cut off the supply of fossil fuels at their source,” said Jones. “We have no time left to waste on neoliberal market tweaks that only seek to saddle working families with paying the costs of climate action.”
“The urgent, necessary solution is to stop the supply of fossil fuels by banning fracking and all other forms of fossil fuel drilling,” he added. “Climate policy proposals that do not squarely confront the issue of supply are not making a serious attempt to avert catastrophe.”
