Winning against Big Gas & Oil

Issued in the blog on May 27, 2021 at 17:35:00.

Shell FoE Netherlands

Taking down the fossil fuel industry. It’s critical in the fight against climate change. It can be a daunting challenge at times - a real David versus Goliath fight. But not this week. Or last week for that matter. Because it’s been an exciting, hopeful few weeks in the battle against Big Gas and Oil. 

Last week, the International Energy Agency (IEA) finally confirmed that new oil and gas fields should not be approved beyond this year. That’s obvious to us. New oil and gas development should have stopped years ago. But the IEA has promoted fossil fuels for a very long time. So this shift is a big deal!

Have your say on Climate Action - Submit to the Government's Climate Consultation using our handy guide

Issued in the blog on May 13, 2021 at 15:23:00.

FoE 2 mins last chance consultation

The climate movement has been calling for greater public consultation on climate action for years. It's a crucial part of achieving climate action that's faster and fairer. 

So we're pleased that the Government has organised a public consultation on the Climate Action Plan. But we're also disappointed with how the consultation has been written. Many of the questions don’t address the scale of change needed to achieve the climate action we need. Nor do they address the need for a systems change approach to climate action -  that has climate justice and a just transition at its heart.

To address the climate crisis, we need to get off fossil fuels fast. Ireland has excellent renewable energy resources, but our energy system uses fossil fuels for the majority of our energy needs in transport, heating and electricity. This has to change. Fast! 

At Friends of the Earth we are working to make sure that Ireland’s energy system is fit for the future, with no more investment in fossil fuel infrastructure, no more exploration for fossil fuels and an energy system that values and supports citizens and communities participating in and benefiting from our renewable energy transition.
