For every 1,000 signatures, NationofChange will send a letter to the Obama administration demanding that the fossil fuel industry play no role in climate policymaking.

Corporate influence has pervaded previous Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and other climate negotiations over the years in an effort to protect corporate profits. And now, the climate crisis is closer to the brink.

Not only has the fossil fuel industry interfered with climate progress, these big polluters have pushed false solutions and committed numerous environmental and human rights violations.

With the upcoming COP21 in Paris, France in December, we need to protect the U.N. climate talks and ban the fossil fuel industry from participating in climate policymaking. It's time we pressure the Parties to act with urgency and create real climate change solutions that will address the climate crisis, not back the likings of the fossil fuel industry.

"Without tackling the influence of the fossil fuel industry, we’re never going to stop dangerous climate change," Pascoe Sabido, Corporate Europe Observatory, said.

Scientists have warned of the "irreversible damage to our plant due to climate change" and it's time world leaders take bold action at the Paris climate talks to ensure we stop extracting fossil fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emissions among other solutions. But with the fossil fuel industry and other transnational corporations standing in their way, we must remove fossil fuel industry lobbyists from climate policy.

Take action today and sign the petition to create a "precedent-setting treaty mechanism" to get a behemoth industry out of the way. Help us save the planet!
