Working at @CANEurope to expose contradictions between European trade and climate policies. 1st steps: End the Energy Charter Treaty, ISDS and #StopEUMercosur!

Joined June 2020
German language legal blog explains how countries could withdraw from the #EnergyCharterTreaty. Given its adverse impact on German taxpayers and energy transition, a new government needs to withdraw from this climate-wracking treaty! @berndlange @ABaerbock @OlafScholz @c_lindner
Investitionsschutz über Klimaschutz? @nathaliebernasc, @lschaugg (beide @iisd_elp) und @vdbam (@clientearth) zeigen, warum der Energiecharta-Vertrag die Energiewende bedroht - und warum ein Rücktritt aus dem Vertrag völkerrechtlich möglich ist. verfassungsblog.de/investiti…

STARTING at 3h: vote on #ExitECT resolution in Dutch parliament calling for withdrawal from the Energy Charter Treaty. Much will depend on the vote of @cdavandaag @christenunie @D66 Now is their chance to say YES to climate justice and NO to the Energy Charter Treaty! RT pls! 🦖

New @IISD_news study: By withdrawing, EU countries would significantly reduce their risk of ISDS claims under the #EnergyCharterTreaty over coal exits. Best-case reform scenario would leave 61 coal-fired power plants protected well into the 2030s. #noECT iisd.org/itn/en/2021/09/24/r…

HAPPENING NOW! Protest in front of the @EU_Commission against the #EnergyCharterTreaty. It is time to end the treaty that protects #fossilfuel companies and allows them to claim compensations when countries phase out #coal, #oil or #fossilgas! #NoECT caneurope.org/ect-petition/

During Civil Society dialogue, @VDombrovskis just stated that withdrawal from #EnergyCharterTreaty is an option but the sunset clause is the main concern. However, there is already a solution to neutralise the sunset clause in a coordinated withdrawal: iisd.org/itn/en/2021/06/24/e…

You might think that environmental exception clauses help to prevent ISDS claims when you declare a water protection zone? Nope, the system is out of control! Read this excellent thread and #StopISDS:
After being off Twitter for the summer to finish my book "New Treaties, Old Outcomes" on how new-generation investment treaties are interpreted like old ones, this is the first tweet I see. 👇 Well, I'll have to add a couple of new paragraphs to the manuscript... 🧵

Utterly shameful 😡 The €18bn that fossil fuel firms are seeking from governments is almost 1/4 of the entire sum of funding provided by developed nations to developing ones to combat climate change. via @GlobalJusticeUK
Fossil fuel firms sue governments across the world for over €18bn because policies to combat the climate crisis threaten their profits act.gp/3nIvYDA

Fresh online: Our briefing on today's CJEU judgement and its implications. Important to note: The ECT's #ISDS is also incompatible with EU law for arbitration outside the EU. To overcome both legality issues, the EU and MS must withdraw! #noECT caneurope.org/content/upload…

It'll be interesting to see whether Uniper's majority shareholder Fortum will use the #EnergyCharterTreaty to sue Germany if #Datteln4 has to be deconstructed. Compensation under German law is likely to be lower. Yet another reason to withdraw! #noECT caneurope.org/ect-petition/
A 🇩🇪 higher court has today ruled that @uniper_energy's €1.5 bn #Datteln4 coal plant, brought online last year amidst widespread protest, was constructed illegally. @bund_nrw & local residents that filed the case are calling for the plant to be shut down. bit.ly/3mC52ob
