“Sacrificing millions of acres in the Gulf of Mexico for oil and gas extraction is a gross denial of reality by Joe Biden in the face of climate catastrophe,” said Collin Rees.
This new analysis, an update to the data in our landmark Sky’s Limit series, finds that the majority of the fossil fuel reserves within active fields and mines must now stay in the ground. Using updated 2023 data, the proportion of coal, oil, and gas reserves that must remain unextracted to meet the 1.5°C limit has increased from nearly 40% in 2018 to almost 60% in 2023.

New research shows that Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries supported fossil fuel exports by an average of USD 41 billion from 2018-2020, almost five times more than clean energy exports ($8.5 billion).
“Biden’s claims to be a climate leader are increasingly laughable after EXIM’s approval of this refinery. If he can’t be trusted to keep this relatively modest promise, how can anyone trust the United States to live up to its even grander climate promises?” asked Adam McGibbon.
“As we feared and expected, the UAE Presidency of COP28 is putting the interest of the oil and gas industry above those of the climate process it is supposed to shepherd,” said Romain Ioualalen.
Our new report shows that certified gas programs are likely highly unreliable and ineffective, resulting in increased threats to health and climate from the oil and gas industry.
A new report by Oil Change International and Earthworks examines the rapid growth in “certified gas” and exposes on-the-ground failures to detect oil & gas pollution by one of the largest certifiers of methane gas.
This report, Banking on Climate Chaos 2023, analyzes fossil fuel financing and policies from the world’s 60 largest commercial and investment banks. We reveal that fossil fuel financing from the world’s 60 largest banks has reached nearly USD $5.5 trillion in the seven years since the adoption of the Paris Agreement, with $673 billion in 2022 alone.
