California, Don't let Shell Roast the Planet!

Oilwatch International

Statement on Rejecting California REDD
Earth Day, April 22, 2013

Californians are renowned for being environmental savvy so we at Oilwatch International were dismayed to learn that the State of California may let
climate criminals like Shell and Chevron off the hook by including a false
solution to climate change called REDD in its global warming law.


REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation) is a
carbon offset scheme whereby polluters use forests and land as supposed
sponges for their pollution instead of reducing greenhouse gas emissions at
source.


REDD allows polluters to keep polluting and global warming to get worse. The
State of California's climate change law, AB32, currently includes domestic
REDD offsets, and may soon be broadened to also include international
REDD offsets from countries like Mexico, Brazil and Nigeria.
