Block out companies driving the climate crisis

We are in a climate crisis, and as more and more people take to the streets to strike for climate action, we have developed a tool to help block out the digital presence of those that have helped cause the crisis in the first place.

Fossil fuel companies, and coal companies in particular, are big drivers of the climate crisis. Many financial institutions continue to support them, allowing them to get on with dirty business as usual.

While some boast their renewable credentials, this positive is undone by their ongoing support of coal. 

If they refuse to help us achieve real change, then it’s time to send them a message that their voices are not welcome until they do. Climate Blackout is a web browser extension to create a digital blockage against the websites and social media profiles of coal companies and their financiers that remain part of the problem.

What you can do: Install the extension, use the inbuilt tools to share when pages are blocked, and have conversations with others in your social circle to encourage them to do the same.

This browser extension currently blocks specific sites and pages of the European companies outlined here. Coal is being prioritised as it is one of the worst offenders and getting coal plants shut in Europe by 2030 is an essential act for climate.

The list of companies which have their online presence blocked was compiled from active campaigns calling for their exit from coal across the Europe Beyond Coal network. These European coal utilities were already exposed for their harmful impact in The Last Gasp report (November 2018), as well as the financial institutions enabling them in the recent Fool’s Gold report (March 2019).
