We need to act now, if we want to keep the planet in a liveable condition under climate change. The Paris Climate Agreement was a step in the right direction. Now ambition has to be raised and wrong approaches to solving the climate crisis have to be prevented. We want to promote real alternatives, advance social-ecologic transformation and hold those accountable whose business model causes climate change. A change of course is possible!

Radical Realism for Climate Justice

Dossier

Limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial is feasible. Our Dossier is a civil society response to the challenge of such a limitation  that's also paving the way for climate justice. Because it’s is neither ‘naïve’ nor ‘politically unfeasible’, it is radically realistic.

A change of course - How to build a fair future in a 1.5° world

In Paris in 2015 governments agreed to keep global warming to well below 2 degrees. The mainstream pathways pin theirhopes to risky and costly technologies. In this joint publication, together with Friends of the Earth Germany (BUND) and Misereor, we present alternatives that are possible and necessary for a change of course.

Smoke and Fumes

Oil industry actors had early knowledge of climate risks and important opportunities to act on those risks, but repeatedly failed to do so. Those failures give raise to potential legal responsibilities under an array of legal theories.

Climate Finance

Green finance and climate finance

The G20 uses the term “Green Finance” as a broad umbrella term that refers to the major shift in financial flows required to support projects that benefit the environment and society by reducing pollution or tackling climate change.

This site germanclimatefinance.de is designed to critically evaluate and increase transparency regarding the German government’s contribution to international climate finance.

The Climate Finance Fundamentals look at various aspects of climate change financing. It is meant to give readers unfamiliar with the global discourse about funding for climate action a better understanding of financial flows, the regions and countries they reach, and the climate interventions they target

A Crack in the Shell: New Documents Expose a Hidden Climate History

pdf
Oil Giant Royal Dutch Shell has known about climate risks of fossil fuel production for six decades. As early as the 1980s Shell knew about their accountability for 4 % of global carbon emissions. Still, while pragmatically protecting their own offshore oil rigs from the dangers of sea level rise, Shell massively promoted climate denial and climate obstruction as the CIEL report shows.
