Two minutes that I hope might begin turning the climate tide.

Two minutes that I hope might begin turning the climate tide.

Folks

I am living in hope that this 2 minute
animation of the latest CarbonTracker findings holds
huge potential in the climate debate. Its not just the way that it portrays
the findings of our latest Carbon Tracker
report, launched at a packed event last
Thursday in Bloomberg's HQ in the heart of the City of London. Its the
nature of the arguments. You don't even have believe in the danger of
climate change to see that. You just have to believe that its worth having a
pension that doesn't evaporate on you.

Bill McKibben and I elaborate on how this all looks from our campaigners'
perspectives on climate change in an
op-ed. But for those who prefer to listen to
financial analysts, how about this from HSBC's oil and gas analyst, Paul
Spedding? “The scale of ‘listed’ unburnable carbon revealed in this report
is astonishing. This report makes it clear that ‘business as usual’ is not a
viable option for the fossil fuel industry in the long term." In other
words, shrink your oil and gas and grow your clean energy while you have
time.

Fossil-fuel advocates worry about keeping what they call their "social
licence", meaning the tacit permission of society to frack and otherwise
exploit ever dirtier carbon fuels. They should be worried about losing their
financial licence too. This is how we can perhaps best hope to turn them
away from their determined effort to drive civilisation over a cliff.

Onward into our ever more interesting future
