Who we are:
Oil Change International is a research, communication, and advocacy organization focused on exposing the true costs of fossil fuels and facilitating the coming transition towards clean energy.
The climate movement demands a process free of fossil influence, including real conflict-of-interest policies to keep fossil interests from co-opting the talks and social pressure to block the oil, gas, and coal industries from leading the energy transition.
"We need a shift away from the business-as-usual threatening lives and wrecking the climate, but Azerbaijan appointing another lifelong oil man to lead the next UN climate talks pushes us closer to the abyss," said Rees.
Groups denounced the final statement from leaders of ASEAN member states, as leaders announced the Asia Zero Emission Community Joint Statement claiming a need to use gas, ammonia, biomass, hydrogen, and nuclear for greenwashing in Asia.
“People power put a full, fast, fair, and funded fossil fuel phaseout at the top of the UN agenda. While we didn’t get there, we secured the first UN climate agreement that calls on all countries to ‘transition away from fossil fuels,’ sending an unprecedented signal to the fossil fuel industry that its days are numbered. This progress has only been achieved by decades of struggle by frontline communities, Indigenous Peoples, and the most affected countries."
“The draft text calls for the first time on all parties to contribute to the transition away from fossil fuels, which is unprecedented in the UNFCCC and would have been unimaginable just two years ago. "
