[Event]The Fossil Endgame – new blog series

Dear colleagues,
We are pleased to announce the launch of a new blog series titled “The Fossil Endgame”: medium.com/@leave_it_in_the_ground/leave-it-in-the-ground-ef2b2259ee6a
It will bring together leading global thinkers to discuss a swift post-carbon transition and help inform the strategic choices to be made in COVID recovery, investments, business strategy, research etc.

Some of the topics that will be covered are:
– Why “natural” gas is “fossil” gas and is a very dangerous dead-end road instead of saviour and companion of the energy transition and why shutting it down first may be our smartest option in the climate emergency. – The Climate Bailout — how to shut down fossils and speed up the energy transition without having to spend any of your own money. – “Fossil-free” — the coming new norm. – Disruption tools already being forged. – Counter strategies aimed at holding back the disruption. – The bankruptcy game and other financial exit strategies and why fossil fuel workers and the environment are sitting in the same boat.
It is co-hosted by the Leave it in the Ground Initiative (LINGO) and the Rapid Transition Alliance (RTA) and supported by IUCN NL . We invite you to join us on this inspiring journey. Staying below 1.5°C is in reach if we seize the opportunity to build back green. So far, 2019 was the peak of fossil fuels. Let’s keep it that way!
