Congress encourage coal based power plants!
The Congress approved a law that encourages the installation of power plants fueled by coal in Brazil on October 19.
This just when the countries joined forces around the Paris Agreement to reduce emissions.
Coal is the most polluting fossil fuel. It accounts for nearly a third of CO2 emissions in the world.
The President has the right to veto the law. A Drop in the Ocean joins Greenpeace Brazil and WWF-Brazil in this campaign for a veto.
Let us unite around more this cause and Sign the petition:
