Climate warning

The surge of new US-led oil and gas activity poses a threat to the Paris climate goals.

Fossil fuel producers, led by the US, are set to significantly increase oil and gas extraction from newly approved projects by the end of the decade, posing a serious threat to the agreed climate goals. Despite warnings from experts and organizations like the International Energy Agency, the industry continues to forge ahead with new oil and gas activity, with the US taking the lead in new projects.
This relentless pursuit of fossil fuels not only jeopardizes the planet's chances of staying below the 1.5C global heating threshold but also undermines efforts to mitigate the climate crisis. The report highlights the urgent need for a shift away from new oil and gas infrastructure in order to avoid catastrophic consequences for the planet.
It's alarming to see the continued expansion of oil and gas projects despite the clear warnings about their detrimental impact on the climate. It's Heartbreaking to see the lack of response to such a critical issue. The urgency of addressing climate change cannot be overstated, and it's disheartening to witness the continued pursuit of activities that jeopardize our planet's future. This actions highlights the importance of reevaluating our reliance on fossil fuels and accelerating the transition to more sustainable energy sources in order to safeguard the planet's future.

          This is beyond frustrating. The world is on fire and we're drilling for more gasoline? The science is clear - fossil fuels are destroying our future. Let's invest in a clean energy future for all.
