Dear friends, This morning, climate fraud Mathias Cormann started his duties as the new Secretary General to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), one of the most powerful organisations in shaping climate action around the world.As leader of the OECD, Cormann will be able to either squash global climate ambition, or supercharge it -- uniting the world in the face of this unprecedented challenge.Unfortunately, Cormann has a horrendous track record on climate, even calling the goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050 “extremist”. But during his election campaign, he assured his critics that he's “absolutely committed to ambitious and effective action on climate change”. As he takes office, Cormann will be in the global spotlight. Let’s welcome him with messages holding him accountable and on his toes, by asking: Will you unite the OECD behind humanity’s historic fight to keep the global temperature rise below 1.5ºC and give our kids the future they deserve?Join the Twitter storm to let him know we’re watching!RetweetAvaaz's Tweet

Dear friends,
This morning, climate fraud Mathias Cormann started his duties as the new Secretary General to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), one of the most powerful organisations in shaping climate action around the world.

As leader of the OECD, Cormann will be able to either squash global climate ambition, or supercharge it -- uniting the world in the face of this unprecedented challenge.

Unfortunately, Cormann has a horrendous track record on climate, even calling the goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050 “extremist”. But during his election campaign, he assured his critics that he's “absolutely committed to ambitious and effective action on climate change”. 

As he takes office, Cormann will be in the global spotlight. Let’s welcome him with messages holding him accountable and on his toes, by asking: Will you unite the OECD behind humanity’s historic fight to keep the global temperature rise below 1.5ºC and give our kids the future they deserve?

Join the Twitter storm to let him know we’re watching!

Cormann’s first big test is already waiting for him: The powerful International Energy Agency just published its first ever 1.5ºC aligned energy analysis and announced there’s no need for new fossil fuel projects. It’s a big deal, but some OECD countries are already pushing back.

Will Cormann rally member states to support and encourage the IEA to align their future reports with the 1.5ºC limit instead? Will he pull his weight to ensure the agency from now on focuses their analysis on where we need to go and how to get there -- rather than emboldening the catastrophic status quo? 

The path he chooses now could seal our planet’s fate. Send Cormann a message now!


Make sure to include the handle @MathiasCormann! You can refer to @IEA and their chief @Fbirol too.

From raging wildfires to torrential flooding and long-term droughts, the climate crisis has arrived. But this could also be the year in which we finally rank up our immediate action and ambition to combat global warming, and start our transition to a cleaner, safer future for all.

With hope and determination,

Alice, Patricia, Pascal, Ine, and the rest of the Avaaz team
