    19 August 2016

    Deshalb ist die Interpretation des Klimawandels in ein Sicherheitsproblem so irritierend. Sie schafft eine doppelt Ungerechtigkeit. Nicht nur leiden diejenigen, die am wenigsten mit der Verursachung des Klimawandels zu tun haben, am meisten von den Folgen des Klimawandels, sondern sie werden nun auch noch angesichts dieser klimatischen Auswirkungen mit Sicherheitreaktionen konfrontiert.

    In December 2015, 195 countries gathered in Paris and adopted the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal.

  6. COP21 charades: Spin, lies and real hope in Paris

    19 April 2016

    The Paris COP21 talks failed to deliver a meaningful result, judged from either a scientific or social justice point-of-view.

    Los ejecutivos empresariales y los negacionistas que se movilizan en contra de acuerdos internacionales firmes sobre el cambio climático han sido, justamente, el foco de atención de muchas personas preocupadas por la crisis climática.

    Corporate executives and climate skeptics that mobilise against strong international climate change agreements have rightly been the focus of attention of many people concerned about the climate crisis. But another group of elites—those who actually believe in climate change —may paradoxically have done more to block effective solutions to the crisis.

    14 December 2015

    With some 800 bases around the globe, it is no surprise that the U.S. military is the world's biggest consumer of petroleum.

  15. Polluters’ Paradise

    07 December 2015

    Climate change action demands moving to an energy system based on renewables and leaving fossil fuels in the ground. International investment agreements, and particularly ISDS, stand in the way of energy transition. They limit the ability of governments to set the terms of their energy policy, including the support of renewable energy. Investment agreements such as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) will further empower corporations to challenge strong government action on climate change
