Toxic fracking vs. Slovenian democracy
Amid the climate and environmental emergency, a British oil and gas company is threatening to sue Slovenia for requiring an environmental impact assessment for a controversial gas fracking project.
The fracking company is seeking €120 million in damages and is using the #EnergyCharterTreaty (ECT), which empowers fossil fuel companies to sue countries that halt or regulate destructive energy projects.
Cases like this prove how important it is to end the ECT. Sign the petition here : https://corporateeurope.org/en/take-action-end-climate-killing-energy-charter-treaty
