To coincide with the “GX Week” in Japan, a network of civil society groups from across the region and Global South have come together to call for Japan to stop financing false solutions and delaying the just transition to clean energy.
This morning in the luxurious Plaza Hotel in Brussels, many of the world top oil firms assembled for a conference on “Go Net Zero Energy.” But newly released internal documents reveal that Big Oil messaging on climate change and net zero are based on spin and “deception”.
A new investigation by Global Witness has examined Shell’s landmark Quest CCS project in Canada, which captures the CO2 from the company’s dirty tar sands operations. According to Global Witness, the Quest plant “is in fact emitting more than it is capturing.”

The fossil fuel industry continues to argue that Carbon, Capture and Storage (CCS) is an integral solution to our climate crisis. Billions has been spent trying to get the technology to work. Billions has already been wasted. Billions more will be wasted too.
Just days before COP26, Australia’s long-awaited climate plan has been slammed by civil society, scientists and opposition politicians as void of substance and full of spin.

More than 500 organizations called on policymakers in the U.S. and Canada to reject Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) as a dangerous distraction and to end the “carbon capture of climate policy.”
