Climate warning

SA Energy Minister determined to "fight" for fossil fuel proliferation ! #GwedeMustFall

Bloomberg • 21 May 2023
South Africa is prepared for legal fights with environmental groups over the government’s plans to use ship-mounted power plants to resolve the nation’s blackout crisis, the energy minister told the Johannesburg-based Sunday Times.

                  Ship mounted power plants are not the best solutions whatsoever but daring to invest more in renewable energy is

                        Gwede must fall.... It's a shame seeing a leader of his caliber support fossil fuels while the wiuis try to transit to clean energy

                          This is sad, leaders should be leading the fight against climate crisis and not supporting fossil fuel

                                What kind of hypocrisy is this? South Africa is among the worst hit countries by climate change.

                                  It's sad to hear about this from South Africa which has been greatly affected by climate change. The leaders should be at the forefront in leading climate actions.

                                      @sarah_chabane Yes it is very disappointing to see SA energy minister ignoring the urgent need to transition away from fossil fuels and instead determined to proliferate them⚠⚠
