23rd November 2022 shoreditchadmin2 0

1. The pace of action is slower than the rate of breakdown
2. Fossil fuel companies are embedded in the COP process
3. Gas development in Africa is “fossil fuel colonialism”
4. The West/Global North is still failing to support the Global South, prioritising war instead
5. Progress depends on countries raising and exceeding existing targets
6. The Inflation Reduction Act is an America First carbon reduction plan
7. The climate struggle is a class struggle
