An oil exec leading the climate talks?

It was recently announced that Sultan Al Jaber, the chief executive of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), will be overseeing1 the upcoming round of global climate negotiations.

You read that right. An actual oil executive is set to be the president of this year’s U.N. climate talks.

This is utterly absurd and shows that we’ve got critical work to do to kick Big Polluters out of the U.N. climate talks and to make polluting industries pay for the damage they have caused and continue to cause.

As soon as news broke, we began organizing with allies from around the globe to demand that Big Polluters no longer be allowed to undermine the global response to the climate crisis.

Join more than 425 organizations around the world in demanding we kick Big Polluters out and tweet at the leadership of the U.N.

Last year, we helped expose that more than 630 fossil fuel lobbyists registered2 to attend the U.N. climate talks. But they aren’t even trying to hide it anymore.

An oil executive cannot preside over the climate talks — not now, not ever. We’ve seen Big Polluters spend decades bullying, muddying the waters with junk science, proposing dangerous false solutions, and anything else they can do to delay, derail, and undermine real solutions to address the climate crisis. All to protect corporate profits.

Demand that Big Polluters not be allowed to undermine the global response to the climate crisis.

Join the growing coalition to kick Big Polluters out and make this demand visible by posting on Twitter.
