Newsletter d’Energy Transition, The Global Energiewende
|Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Last week, the special report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was published. The report lays out the scientific foundations for world leaders to act in order to avoid climate catastrophe. The window of opportunity is closing fast, but we are being held back by the influence of business interests who want to maintain the status quo for as long as possible. In this issue, Andy Gheorghiu takes an in-depth look at one of these business interests in the fossil fuels industry: in #Fracking4Plastics he finds a close link between the plastic and fossil fuel industries, and outlines how shale gas extraction and fracking have created a whole new plastic boom in the United States.
Your Global Energiewende Team,
Rebecca Bertram & Kathrin Meyer
