TiSA: The Free Fracking Agreement – Unions For Trade Justice

TiSA: The Free Fracking Agreement

Proposed TiSA Annex on Energy Related Services

As Heads of State prepare to sign an historic United Nations accord in Paris to avoid today’s accelerating climate catastrophe, their trade negotiators are meeting in Geneva to secretly forge a new Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) covering Energy Related Services (ERS) that could expand fossil fuels exploitation causing climate change, according to analysis of new documents.

Call it the Free Fracking Agreement.

Reviving a proposed framework first floated a decade ago during the Bush-Cheney administration known as “Halliburton’s WTO Agenda,” TiSA’s proposed new deal would recklessly undermine urgent work worldwide to reduce dangerous carbon emissions, create clean energy jobs, and increase energy security for economies everywhere.
