This report finds that the EU’s demand for gas is set to decline significantly in line with climate targets, eliminating the need to expand supply from new fields or infrastructure. In the report the authors model how EU’s gas demand matches future supply in various forecasted scenarios.
While Manchin and his industry allies spread tired old myths about America saving the world from Putin and Chinese coal plants, the reality is the energy transition is already moving away from gas faster than most people think. That action needs to focus on a phase-out of all fossil fuel exports and protections and reparations for the frontline communities.
This amicus curiae, submitted to the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, outlines the duty of States to phase out fossil fuel production and use in order to comply with the 1.5°C temperature limit.
Governments have spent over $20 billion – and have approved up to $200 billion more – of public money on carbon capture and storage (CCS), providing a lifeline for the fossil fuel industry. Almost 80% of operating carbon capture capacity globally sends captured CO2 to produce more oil via Enhanced Oil Recovery, while many of the world’s largest CCS projects overpromise and underdeliver.
Oil and gas companies, and some governments, are more interested in looking like they’re acting on climate change than actually acting. They spend billions on smoke and mirrors such as “carbon capture and storage,” “certified gas,” ammonia co-firing, and hydrogen when in reality, they are trying to build escape hatches to continue their dirty business as usual.
Despite the urgent need to phase out fossil fuels, Japan is driving the expansion of liquified gas (LNG) and other fossil-based technologies like ammonia co-firing, worsening the climate crisis and harming communities and ecosystems.
A new report analyzes how the Inflation Reduction Act fails to reduce fossil fuel production or alleviate impact on environmental justice communities, and that current policies will instead lead to a deadly increase in oil and gas production and exports.
A new report commissioned by Oil Change International attempts to map out the potential influence that oil and gas interests may have on other influential stakeholders in Norway.
This is the first factsheet in a forthcoming series that details why fossil gas is dangerous for our planet and our communities in Africa, and how gas acts as a barrier to the energy transition we need for a safe, secure and healthy future.
Gas infrastructure locks in decades of new carbon emissions and slows the transition to clean energy. This fact sheet provides insights into the latest research on achieving fossil-free electricity.
