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.
79% of operating carbon capture capacity globally sends captured CO2 to produce more oil (via Enhanced Oil Recovery).
Many of the largest CCS projects in the world overpromise and under-deliver, operating far below capacity.
Oil and gas companies, and some governments, are more interested in looking like they are acting on climate change than actually acting on climate change. They spend billions on smoke and mirrors, such as: “carbon capture and storage”, “certified gas”, and ammonia co-firing, and hydrogen, to make us believe that they are coming up with … Read More
Download the briefing in English or Japanese. 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 across Asia and globally. This will worsen the climate crisis and harm communities and ecosystems. Communities and movements are rising up – particularly in the Global South – … Read More
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.
A new infographic reveals how fossil-fueled development bypasses African communities, but also illustrates the continent’s potential for a just transition. As Africa holds 39 percent of global renewable energy potential, governments and banks must shift their climate finance commitments towards a renewable just transition in Africa.
New Oil Change International research shows that only 20 countries, led overwhelmingly by the United States, are responsible for nearly 90 percent of the carbon-dioxide (CO2) pollution threatened by new oil and gas fields and fracking wells planned between 2023 and 2050. If this oil and gas expansion is allowed to proceed, it would lock in climate chaos and an unlivable future.
This briefing, titled, Norway’s Electrification of Melkøya Gas Plant: The Perfect Storm of Climate Injustice, reveals not only the project’s disastrous climate implications for the Norway and the Arctic, but also the human rights violations in the decades-long governmental oppression of the Indigenous Sámi people and their ancestral lands.
