The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a trade agreement being negotiated between 12 Pacific Rim countries; eventually, every Pacific Rim nation may be included. While the TPP would have significant consequences for our government’s ability to tackle the climate crisis, not a single word of draft text or U.S. government proposals has been released to the public. Congress is being asked to ease the way for the TPP agreement with the Fast Track legislation that will exclude amendments and limit debate. If the TPP is signed into law then banning fracking, or stopping a pipeline, or putting a price on carbon pollution could all be overturned by the fossil fuel industry suing under the TPP agreement with foreign countries.
