Climate warning

Working on solar energy on one hand, and in coal mining on the other?

On the one hand, we see Adani Group investing $20 billion on the world's largest solar energy plant, but on the other hand, it is getting awarded a contract for a coal mining activity? Maybe the company does not understand that both of these are counter-productive, or maybe it is just business at the end of the day. While the whole world is slowly realizing the importance of climate change, for Adani Group, coal and solar energy are just two different sources of revenue. When billions of dollars’ worth of revenue is in question, the opinions of powerless villagers living in the area do not matter. It really does not seem to matter that the trees that are being cut for the coal mining purposes, are in the vicinity of the village in Chhattisgarh where hundreds of people live, and who are completely against this huge scale cutting down of forests. We can see that the Adani Group has good intentions when it comes to investing in clean energy, or maybe it is just the revenue that the company is after. Whatever the reason maybe, more focus is needed to invest in green energy. As of 2022, $7 trillion was spent on fossil fuel subsidies, but you know what? We need about half of that amount by 2030 if we want to help improve the climate change situation! This investment shows that we do have the money, but we need to invest this amount in the right direction! And we don’t even need $7 trillion dollars. All we need is $4.5 trillion and we will smoothly make our move towards a greener planet. Once we start to make the change, the need for fossil fuels will decrease, and with that the need to mine for fossil fuel resources will also go down. The big corporations can then earn their revenue off green energy! Wouldn’t that be wonderful? Read more on the #MovetheMoney campaign:

    This is so frustrating. Adani Group investing in solar AND coal is like saying they care about the environment but also want to chop it down. We need companies to go all-in on renewables.

        Bolder corporate action is needed. Dare to choose!

          Engaging in both coal mining and solar energy projects simultaneously presents a contradictory approach to energy production. This duality undermines the transition to sustainable energy and raises questions about commitment to environmental stewardship and long-term sustainability. It's crucial to prioritize a transition towards cleaner energy sources for a more sustainable future.
