Carbon Bombs

Carbon Bombs

News: The usage of the term ‘carbon bombs’ picked up after an investigative project of The Guardian this year.

About:
• According to the Guardian, it is “an oil or gas project that will result in at least a billion tonnes of CO2 emissions over its lifetime.”
• Around 195 such projects have been identified world over, including in the US, Russia, West Asia, Australia and India.
• According to the report, they will collectively overshoot the limit of emissions that had been agreed to in the Paris Agreement of 2015.

What is the plan for ‘defusing’ carbon bombs?
• The network working towards this goal is called Leave It in the Ground Initiative (LINGO)
• Its mission is to “leave fossil fuels in the ground and learn to live without them.”
• It believes the root of climate change is the burning of fossil fuels, and the 100% use of renewable energy sources is the solution.
• LINGO aims to organize ground support for protesting such projects, challenge them through litigation, and conduct analysis and studies for the same.
