EU: How lobbying has stalled climate action

Since outright denial of the crisis is an untenable position, other tactics have been employed Since climate talks began in Berlin in 1995, the fossil fuel industry has been investing heavily in lobbyists, thinktanks and rogue academics in an attempt to slow political action. As someone who has reported many of the annual UN Cop climate talks, it is typical to find as many sharp-suited operatives trying to throw spanners in the works of the conferences as it is green groups and delegates from vulnerable countries urging faster action. Since outright denial of climate change has become an untenable position because the disaster is unfolding before our eyes, all sorts of other tactics have been needed. https://www.theguardian.com/news/2023/aug/18/weatherwatch-lobbying-climate-action-crisis?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other

          It's disheartening to witness how such influences can delay efforts towards a more sustainable environment.

              This is sad, climate change effects should not in any way be politicized or be made a matter of debate. This storyline must change.
