Sasol Blamed For Climate Change Crimes

Environmental organisations have staged a mock trial, asking petrochemicals group, Sasol to answer for climate change crimes

Environmental organisations have staged a mock trial, asking petrochemicals group, Sasol to answer for climate change crimes.

Earthlife Africa, which led the protest, says Sasol produces 21 percent of South Africa’s total yearly greenhouse-gas emissions. The organisation argues that Sasol alone emits 75.4 million tons of greenhouse-gases each year.

Earthlife Africa energy policy officer, Tristen Taylor, states that the organisation also wants Sasol to put plans for a new plant in the Waterberg on hold.

About 300 people, many from communities surrounding Sasol’s plants in Sasolburg and Secunda, gathered to witness the trial, which featured Sasol as a bespectacled character in khaki shorts and a shirt, with Death as a black-robed executioner standing by.
