Listen to the people, Zuma

As South Africa prepares to host COP17, the international climate negotiations, we urge President Zuma to listen to the people, and not the polluters!

Yesterday we released a new report detailing how carbon-intensive industries -- including Eskom -- are working to delay climate action. 

The report reveals that in fact, our biggest barrier to achieving successful, progressive policies at the international, national, and even sub-national levels is the powerful carbon-intensive industry with its vast army of lobbyists, front groups, and political rolodex.

The behaviour of these powerful corporations flies in the face of common sense – with all of the signs telling us that it would be smarter to bring in strong climate laws, and focus on clean, green energy.

As these corporations have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo, we urge world leaders to listent to the people, and not the polluters!
