Petition number: 1239/2019
Topics: Health, Justice, Environment - Pollution, Environment, Energy
Country: European Union, Australia
Name: Nigel Howard
The petitioner, with dual British and Australian citizenship, calls on the Parliament to take action against countries like Australia that deny climate change and obstruct emergency action to fight climate change. The petitioner calls on the European Parliament to pass a resolution declaring Australia (and other nations not acting on a Climate Emergency) as climate pariahs and urging member countries to put punitive sanctions and tariffs on all exports (especially fossil fuel exports) from Australia until it reduces its emissions and acts as a responsible member of the international community.
