‘Fossil fuel industry spreads climate lies in education’
Thursday, September 7, 2017
A study by Fossil-Free Education shows that fossil companies through primary education, but also through secondary education, influence society. They proclaim that energy transition should not be rushed and that we still need fossil fuel. The fossil corporations try to delay the energy transit as long as possible. They want to sell as much of their coal, oil and gas as possible.
Reduce fossil fuel
The Dutch Party for the Animals has asked questions about the fossil industry in primary education. The minister confirmed that fossil fuels should be reduced to achieve the climate targets of Paris. To reduce global warming to 1.5 degrees, as agreed in the climate agreement, fossil fuels should be reduced to zero in ten years.
BP and Shell planning for catastrophic 5°C global warming despite publicly backing Paris climate agreement. Companies are trying to ‘have their oil and drink it’ by committing to 2°C in public while planning for much higher temperature rises, says shareholder campaign group, ShareAction: here.
