UN chief criticizes oil companies for “big lie” on global warming

UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres accused oil firms of peddling a “big lie” about their role in global warming and warned they should be held accountable.

Guterres describing them as big oil told the world economic forum in the swiss alpine village of Davos that they were fully aware in the 1970s that their core product was baking the planet.” guterres said ExxonMobil denied the findings of its own scientists on the role of fossil fuels in climate change.

To put into context, according to a Greenpeace study released just before the start of the conference, over a thousand private jets delivered dignitaries to last year’s summit in the plush swiss holiday resort, and the sheer volume of flights generated four times the carbon dioxide emissions such aircraft would produce in an average week.

Attendees were accused of “ecological hypocrisy” questioning why WEF claims to be committed to the global goal of keeping warming below 1.5 degrees celsius when the emissions generated by all private jets flying into and out of Davos airports last year were equivalent to the emissions produced by approximately 350,000 average cars for a week.
