Right now, international climate negotiations in Mexico are heating up. But Finland is seeking special favours for its forest industry which would undermine the talks. Environment Minister Paula Lehtom??ki arrives at the summit on Wednesday, so we have just one day to shift her position — let???s call on her to oppose loopholes for loggers!
Forests are a key line of defence against climate change, because trees absorb global warming pollution. Limiting the destruction of forests is a keystone of any climate treaty. But logging companies are seeking to duck their climate obligations, lobbying the Environment Ministry for a massive exemption from accounting for the environmental costs of commercial tree-cutting.
It???s not too late to stop this sham. Let???s send a resounding message from Finnish citizens to safeguard our forests and climate.Send your urgent message to Minister Lehtom??ki — it will be sent to her directly before she leaves, and then delivered at the talks in Cancun before they end on Friday:
Va? ??r inte Finland b??st i alla kategorier? N??, om man f??r tro aktivistn??tverket Avaaz.org s?? ??r vi definitivt inte b??st p?? klimatfr??gor ??? p.g.a. sin skogsindustri f??rs??ker Finland rentav underminera klimattoppm??tet i Mexico!
