This is outrageous -- just as many countries are finally acting to stop climate change and protect the planet, fossil fuel giants are suing governments for billions.
It's all because of a powerful international treaty that almost no one has heard of: the Energy Charter Treaty.
It was designed to encourage energy companies to invest in developing economies, but now it's being weaponised to sue countries when they try to shut down toxic coal plants and oil rigs -- wrecking our transition to 100% clean energy. Companies have already won over $50 Billion from taxpayer funds -- and more and more countries are still getting caught in the trap.
