TotalEclipse: Taking foot off gas; New York, Paris, NGO's demand end to global hydrocarbon projects

FRANCE24, 01 Jun 2023
A coalition of NGOs, joined by the city halls of New York and Paris, on Wednesday presented a demand at a court in the French capital that energy giant TotalEnergies should be ordered to suspend all new hydrocarbon projects worldwide.
