The Republican plan not only refuses to end massive public giveaways to the fossil fuel industry, but also foists the cost on the American public through user fees rather than repealing Trump and the GOP’s tax cuts for billionaires and rich corporations. This plan is a joke.
It has been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week or so for Big Oil…and that’s a very good thing for our climate. Let’s recap: Last week, the International Energy Agency released the groundbreaking “Net Zero by 2050” report, which they described as “world’s first comprehensive study of how to transition to a net zero … Read More
“This is a massive win for people all around the world. The Court’s ruling is crystal clear. Oil and gas companies can no longer hide behind empty climate promises and green PR. They will need to cut oil and gas production and sales to bring their emissions down in line with 1.5°C.”
The American Petroleum Institute (API) falsely claims that oil and gas will be leading energy sources in 2040, even in a Paris-aligned scenario. We show how API gets it wrong.
The IEA has consistently boosted new oil and gas development. Now it’s backing up the global call to stop the expansion of fossil fuel extraction.
The API claims gas is the main reason US power sector emissions are down. Our latest analysis shows it’s not.
With only six months left till COP26, the UK host has work to do. Ending public finance for fossil fuel projects overseas shows potential, but the UK’s lack of action on fossil fuels domestically risks undermining its credibility.
Despite the need to rapidly wind-down fossil fuels to avert the worst of the climate crisis, governments worldwide continue to prop up fossil fuel production with huge sums of public money. They may be breaking international law.
A detailed analysis by Oil Change International of the public statements and commitments by the American Petroleum Institute (API) around methane emissions and climate change has uncovered a decade of spurious data, deceptive messaging, and disingenuous public positioning by the big oil spin doctors.
Rich countries at this week’s Climate Summit need to take decisive action to stop the expansion of oil and gas production, both at home and abroad, both to protect the global climate and local communities. True climate leadership means breaking away from destructive oil and gas and investing in real solutions and green jobs that will help people and the planet thrive.
