Building a Sustainable World Environment

We believe in the need for enforcement penalties and procedures, such as dismantling TRIPS and reconfiguring the WTO as the ‘WTEO’ (World Trade and Environment Organization). Its purpose would be to stop the consumption of fossil fuels to enable a shared responsibility for a future that we can live with. This would bring to an end the profit and greed of multinational corporations at the expense of the environment and excessive climate change.
