We need to talk about corporate evil: companies knowingly doing harm. In this episode, the Angry Clean Energy Guy features a massive company many around the world don’t know about which is overtly trying to greenwash its deeds by using children, while simultaneously – and boldly – trying to fry the planet.
The Angry Clean Energy Guy on a little known, secretive, stealthy tool undermining climate action, the innocuously named the Energy Charter Treaty, threatening to ensure global heating exceeds 2 degrees Celsius by driving tens of billions of dollar more to Big Oil, Big Gas and Big Coal
“COP26,” the 26th year pretty much all the countries in the world convened in an annual conference to talk about what to do about the climate catastrophe, will result – just like its preceding 25 editions – in talk, then in some more talk. That’s because real climate action doesn’t happen at these annual climate meetings: It takes place instead elsewhere, at individual country level, when local action results in stopping deforestation; in accelerating renewable energy deployment and electrifying everything; and in stopping any new oil, gas or coal projects.
