The strategy comes the same week the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned global emissions must peak within the next three years and then rapidly come down to prevent global devastation that will leave cities underwater and push a million species into extinction. The UN’s secretary-general, Antonio Guterres, said: “Investing in new fossil fuel infrastructure is moral and economic madness.”
