From 30 September – 2 October 2020, an online ‘Net Zero Festival’ will be showcasing a range of ‘solutions’ to the climate emergency. But the phrase ‘net zero’ has opened a door to a host of false solutions that will set us back in the fight for climate justice.
Among other speakers, the Net Zero Festival will give a platform to companies including Shell, Drax and Heathrow Airport.
Far from tackling the climate crisis, many of these companies have a history of serious human rights abuses and nature destruction. Others promote false solutions such as ‘net-zero aviation’ that are simply a smokescreen for further land grabs and deforestation.
This webinar series aims to give a brief overview of some of the false solutions being promoted under the banner of ‘net zero’. This second webinar will focus on “Green” Flights, Gas, Nuclear & Incineration.
