“Either we kill this treaty, or the treaty will kill us!”

@ysaheb #StopISDS #NoECT #ExitECT🧵 Image
"Put it simple, this treaty is a major threat to the EU energy sovereignty, #GreenDeal, and #ClimateJustice goals. This timely comic is of high importance to ensure the French Presidency will end the participation of EU countries to this ecocide treaty.” @ysaheb #ExitECT #NoECT Image
"The Energy Charter Treaty is the arguably the largest and most arcane obstacle to climate action. This comic will help you figure out what is going on through thoroughly researched cases. Read, share and convince your politicians to stop the ECT!" @JKSteinberger #ExitECT Image
"This is the biggest threat to climate policy around the world, and most people don’t even know this shadowy, quasi-legal system exists, let alone how it works. If we have any hope of disarming it, we need folks to be aware of what’s happening!” @amywestervelt #StopISDS #ExitECT Image
🔥💀Dawn Of The ECT 💀🔥 the Comic Book celinekeller.com/dawn-of-the-ect would not have been possible without the work of so many before me. THANK YOU! Next tweet I will share a couple big investigations I read and relied on heavily. #EndFossilFuelProtection #StopISDS #ExitECT Image
What did it take to get a compliment from Margaret Thatcher?
Ruud “Shock” Lubbers the mastermind behind the Energy Charter Treaty knew. 
🔥💀Dawn Of The ECT 💀🔥
#ExitECT #StopISDS #EndFossilFuelProtection Image
“Lubbers Plan” was conceived at the end of the cold war. When it was realized as the #ECT it had 3 objectives. If they had called it “Ruud Shock” Disaster Plan maybe we wouldn’t be stuck in such a mess now?

The ”modernisation“ process of the Energy Charter Treaty just keeps this toxic treaty alive! It has been going on and failing for ages. #ExitECT #StopISDS Modernisation of the #ECT is a Global Tragedy at a High Cost for Taxpayers @ysaheb tinyurl.com/26zuzyub
#NoECT Image
"Modernisation"? After 2 years of dialogue, no deadline has emerged to fix #ECT which allows big emitters to sue states for enacting green reforms. @investigate_eu investigate-europe.eu/en/2021/energy… #ExitECT #EndFossilFuelProtection

"The Dutch Government’s strange relationship with the Energy Charter Treaty is coming back to bite the Netherlands.🇩🇪 @RWE_AG evoked the #ECT in its lawsuit against 🇳🇱 for implementation of the phase-out of coal power plants." @ysaheb 2021 euractiv.com/section/energy… #ExitECT #NoECT Image
MH17 no obstacle to gas talks with Putin –just had 2b carried out secretly @FTM_eu

“..not uncharacteristic of Dutch political temperament..there was no immediate public uproar abt corporate responsibility in this matter” euobserver.com/opinion/125214 #ExitECT Image
Remember 2014 Ukraine?

#EndFossilFuelProtection #StopISDS #ExitECT Image
"Over the past decades, Dutch politicians and CEOs have painstakingly linked the future of the Dutch gas sector with the fate of Gazprom and the Kremlin."

“The coal exit can arrive,” @SvenjaSchulze68 rejoiced + "emphasised that the agreement explicitly mentions bringing forward Germany’s coal phase-out to 2035 instead of 2038."

Earlier in 2020:
"Confidential documents on🇩🇪coal phase-out show that @peteraltmaier (CDU),wants to pay an East German energy company billions in compensation FOR PRACTICALLY NOTHING IN RETURN."
"A bloody straddle in injury time." @felixmatthes
#ExitECT Image
Compensation of billions unjustified @GreenpeaceEU greenpeace.de/klimaschutz/en…
"Germany must explain to the Commission why the German lignite companies should receive an undeserved gift of billions from the Federal Ministry of Economics."
#NoECT #StopISDS #ExitECT Image
"@ClientEarth + @fragdenstaat wanted to know what criteria was used to calculate compensation offered to energy firms..Meanwhile...coal power plants are hardly profitable any more." @EURACTIV @spiegelonline

@ClientEarth @fragdenstaat @EURACTIV @spiegelonline "However: If you use this formula, you arrive at the sum of around 4.4 billion euros, i.e. the sum that is still current today." @correctiv_org correctiv.org/aktuelles/2021… @susannegoetze @AnnikaJoeres

"@BWMK: public discussion abt compensation calculations could "unfavourably influence"🇩🇪's relations with EU!" @badulrichmartha

“reform is failing, fossil fuel firms are using it to attack climate policies, over a million citizens are calling for it to be scrapped + now highest court of the EU has declared it illegal. Quitting the ECT should be a no-brainer" @climate_trade #ExitECT clientearth.org/latest/press-o… Image
