Stop Overfishing and Discards

Most of our food fish are already endangered and many fishing grounds are overfished (article at Geo). However the EU has still ceased to resolve for effective fishing quota (original petition in de). Unfortunately even fine food fish like 10 million codfish which are too small are simply discarded into the water because that does not amount to the quota.

On Tuesday, the European Investment Bank decided to postpone its decision on whether to end fossil fuel finance, because last-minute lobbying from the gas industry had forced this decision. Money not spent for fossile infrastructure will go into renewables. According to executives of the bank the resolution is still on track. However the decision of EU finance ministers who need to approve the policy may be crucial as well. Show your support.

Stay strong, Mr Hoyer! #FossilFreeEIB

Mr. Werner Hoyer is the President of the European Investment Bank (EIB). He’s a man with a lot of power – and the willingness to do the right thing. He has vocally supported the Bank’s recent move to drop all fossil fuel loans. But he’s under massive pressure from the fossil fuel lobby, as well as Germany and other countries, who want to sabotage the EIB’s new fossil free lending policy to keep funding for climate-wrecking fossil gas. Fossile gas is that harmful due to leaked methane and fracking. The Bank’s Board will vote on this tomorrow. Mr. Hoyer can stand behind the original ambitious draft of the new Energy Lending Policy - or give in to pressure. What he needs right now is to know that thousands of Europeans have his back.
