The climate and environmental justice debates are heating up ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP21, scheduled for December this year in Paris. Marcelo Calazans and Daniela Meirelles, from FASE Espírito Santo, Brazil, and Tamra Gilbertson, from Carbon Trade Watch, collaborated on the new publication EJOLT (Environmental Justice Organisations , Liabilities and Trade) about the same subject. In the article “Not one more well!: corruption and Brazil’s pre-salt expansion”, they approach the subject from different perspectives, such as the consequences of the exploitation of natural resources at any cost, the expulsion of indigenous and quilombola peoples of their territories , and others. The article also presents the campaign “Not One More Well”, which criticizes the society’s dependence on fossil fuels. This article, with other 13, belongs to the magazine “Refocusing resistance for climate justice. COPing in, COPing out and beyond Paris” , that presents critical points of view about the false solutions to global warming , such as carbon credits.
