Why we need political action to rein in the oil, coal and gas companies | video explainer

The Guardian reveals the 20 fossil fuel companies whose relentless exploitation of the world’s oil, gas and coal reserves can be directly linked to more than one-third of all greenhouse gas emissions in the modern era. Global environment editor, Jonathan Watts, explains how they have continued to expand their operations despite being aware of the industry’s devastating impact on the planet.

    A lot of it is to changing habits in consumerism, which will shift the corporate mindset. Ultimately it's about enforcing new robust policies on the biggest polluters.

    "We are all responsible" to a degree. I don't have a car and my electricity comes from nuclear but I do still eat meat. The problem of going hard after specific companies is that they have the whole world to relocate to and we share the atmosphere.

    Unregulated Energy, Mining and Defence is destroying our Earth. All owned and controlled by the same group of families 🙁

    And while they're able to donate to political parties nothing will change.

    the fossil fueled folly must end
    but the supreme tragic irony is it will take a fire lit under the middle class to shift it.

    UK energy is at record highs for wind and reduction on coal use.
    Energy bills are only getting more expensive for britons.

    The leverage these types of firms have over national Governments is very, very scary. A first step (already in motion) is for Pension Funds to shift their investments away from the fossil fuel industry. This is the only way we (i.e. the people) can make our voices heard. It's a small move, but its a move in the right direction.

    Great video, very clear and informative. Great journalism from the Guardian here.

    I'm not a defender of any big company and the big players have went through any effort go keep the oil flowing from the rig to the tailpipe. But ultimately the ones responsible are the entities who burn it, whether it's s governments, institutions, energy companies and individual consumers. Its fair to say that humanity is sacrificing the long term climatic stability of the planet we inhabit, in exchange for short term economic development. But how do we define long term climatic stability and was there ever such a thing to begin with? The big question is what will a society which is constructed to run on fossil fuels do when the fossil fuels are no longer available? This scenario seems so far away into the future that it seems pointless to ponder this uncomfortable question

    Its almost as if….oil companies….are supplying us….with the energy…….we demand? Soooo I guess we will try to reduce our demand?

    I hope that humankind manages to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to zero. I'll be laughing as I lay dying with the rest of you.
    The main greenhouse gas is water vapour

    China's co2 emissions are almost double those of any other country and growing fast. Britain isn't even in the top 15.

    The best way to lower carbon emissions is to get the Americans to export their fracked gas to china to power their mainly coal fired power stations.

    I hope we see the executives of these companies, organisations and counties locked up in jail until the day they die. They are the real villains of time.

    Not these companies burn this fuel. You burn it.
