Asia is one of the few remaining growth markets for gas. The fossil fuel industry and its proponents are pushing to develop $379 billion of gas terminals, pipelines and power plants in Asia over the next decade. Roughly three-quarters of all Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) import terminals in development globally are planned for Asia. This aggressive buildout ignores a simple truth.
Global Gas & Oil Network: Glasgow Climate Pact Fails to Acknowledge Need to Phase Out Fossil Fuels
“After 30 years, governments finally had the guts to talk openly about the problem of fossil fuel dependence at COP26, but failed to encode a bold solution in their final outcomes.”
U.S. Climate Action Network Member Organizations Respond to COP26 Glasgow Climate Pact
”Continued failure to treat climate change as the crisis it is, will condemn current and future generations to a world of untold suffering and harm. Instead, world leaders should heed young people’s urgent calls to protect their futures.”
Climate Action Network International: At COP26, Rich Nations Betray Vulnerable People of the World
Incremental progress is not good enough. What we need is concrete commitments to fight the climate emergency. This includes a rapid phase out of all fossil fuels through a just energy transition and revisions of national climate targets in line with the 1.5C goal.
Oil Change International experts respond to COP26 outcomes
After two weeks of negotiations COP26 comes to a close. Our experts respond to the outcomes and highlight some of the important progress that happened outside the negotiating rooms.
Report: Oil production in the Permian Basin expected to increase 50% over the next decade
The report additionally reveals that burning the oil and gas projected to be produced in the Permian Basin by 2050 will release nearly 40 billion tons of CO2, almost 10% of the remaining global carbon budget for staying under 1.5°C. 80% of these emissions, over 30.6 billion tons of CO2, would come from burning the liquids and gas produced from new wells that were not in production at the end of 2020, signaling an urgent need — but an opportunity — for President Biden to immediately deny new oil and gas infrastructure permits.
Canada’s Big Oil Reality Check: Major oil and gas producers undercut Canada’s commitment to 1.5ºC
The assessment by Environmental Defence Canada and Oil Change International assesses eight of Canada’s top oil and gas producers, including Imperial (ExxonMobil) and Shell. It finds they are all on track to increase their oil and gas production in Canada, rather than planning a fair transition away from fossil fuels that are fuelling the climate crisis.
New Report: Climate Plans of Major Canadian Oil and Gas Producers Undercut Canada’s Commitment to 1.5ºC
The climate plans of major oil and gas companies operating in Canada rank among the worst worldwide and will accelerate the climate crisis rather than help Canada and the world limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius (ºC), according to a new report launched at the UN Climate Change Conference.
The Sky’s Limit Africa: The Case for a Just Energy Transition from Fossil Fuel Production in Africa
The Sky’s Limit Africa assesses fossil fuel industry plans to sink USD $230 billion into the development of new extraction projects in Africa in the next decade — and USD $1.4 trillion by 2050. It finds these projects are not compatible with a safe climate future and that they are at risk of becoming stranded assets that leave behind unfunded clean-up, shortfalls of government revenue, and overnight job losses.
People vs. Fossil Fuels: Why Biden must act now to confront fossil fuels
Today I’m risking arrest as a part of the People vs Fossil Fuels week of action in Washington, D.C. The climate emergency is here and we know fossil fuels are the cause.
