@chilledasad100 @nickdearden75 @KierraBox @CANIntl @Jayati1609 @angelafrancisuk @TraidcraftDepth @WarOnWant @LizMay12 @jasonhickel The majority of green tech patents are held in developed countries. They profit from selling green products to poorer countries but (as with
vaccines) are resisting sharing the technology. These Intellectual Property rules need to be challenged 8/11

It is infuriating to see that the world—in the midst of this existential climate emergency—has just deprived itself of precious financial resources by adopting a cheap global agreement on the taxation of multinationals @LEONCENDIKUMANA oped @commondreams

@IlhanMN "Too many are national in scope. Too many ideas about ‘greening’ are national and personal in scope, and don't recognise global structures that create more injustice, and destroying the possibilities to address the existential challenge of climate."

Structural Adjustment returns to Africa while the global North spends trillions.

(Don't get me wrong, I'm supportive of US stimulus but, as @Jayati1609 said to me yesterday this just shows the double standards and how the global South is on its own.)

@IlhanMN @Jayati1609 "The pain caused by this crisis is self-inflicted. For decades, the US government has subsidised the polluters that are creating climate change, doling out more than $20 billion a year on fossil fuel energy when that money could be spent on alternatives"

Rich countries have long broken their 2009 Copenhagen pledge to mobilize US$100 billion per year by 2020 to address the needs of developing countries. The has worsened the situation and poor countries are struggling to cope.

The patent for insulin was sold for $1 so it would be available to all.

Insulin in the United States is now the 6th most expensive liquid in the world.

That is the power of Big Pharma's greed when it goes unchallenged. NOW is the time that we finally take them on.
