UN Chief Calls for Ban On Fossil Fuel Ads

The Head of the United Nations said on Wednesday that the world’s fossil fuel industries should be banned from advertising to help save the world from climate change.

UN Secretary General António Guterres, said coal, oil and gas corporations are godfathers of climate chaos who had distorted the truth and deceived the public for decades.

He added that just as tobacco advertising was banned because of the threat to health, the same should now apply to fossil fuels.

Meanwhile, Guterres’ call for an outright ban on all fossil fuel advertising goes further, but it has no legal standing, and the UN has no means of enforcing the idea.

Fossil fuel is a generic term for non-renewable energy sources such as coal, coal products, natural gas, derived gas, crude oil, petroleum products and non-renewable wastes.
