The President of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, asked this Monday (7) , at 27th United Nations Climate Conference (COP), efforts to “act more forcefully to save the life of the planet and avoid the extinction of the human species”, insisting that “the solution is a world without oil and without coal”.

In a speech at the general debate at the Climate Summit, Petro launched a vehement appeal for an end to the hydrocarbons in the world by stating that ‘the climate crisis can only be overcome if we stop consuming hydrocarbons’.

“It is time to devalue the industry, with dates set for its end. The political leadership of COP1 has so far failed to stop the cause of the climate crisis. We consume more and more oil, coal and gas and even the time we would have to plan the solution has been spent on war, geopolitics and the domination of humanity”, Petro said in his speech.

But “stop consuming oil and coal” implies “a profound transformation of the economy, a devaluation of powerful interests in that economy, a change in the world economy”, he added.
