With all the pollution and global warming happening, it’s easy to loose hope and think that there is no point in fighting for the Earth anymore. But activism does give results if you don’t give up, as has been shown time and time again throughout history. On Wednesday, a historic climate victory happened in the Netherlands when a court ordered the oil company Shell to reduce their carbon emissions by 45% by 2030. This happened after an activist group sued the company and won. Experts believe this legal victory could be set as a precedent for similar lawsuits, which could further motivate oil companies to reduce emissions.
Another great piece of news is that the G7 countries have agreed to stop financing the coal industry before the end of the year. This will hopefully motivate other great economies of the world’s to do the same and instead invest in green energy technologies.
