Beyond Fossil Fuels says growth of fossil gas in Europe is speeding up the climate crisis

# Non-profit organisation Beyond Fossil Fuels says Europe’s expansion of fossil gas is accelerating climate breakdown. According to an analysis by the organisation, just four of Europe’s gas-fired power plants have a retirement plan, and new projects will increase the continent’s gas generation capacity by 27-percent. Last year, Italy, the UK and Germany agreed to fully or predominantly decarbonise their power sectors by 2035. Beyond Fossil Fuels’ Alexandru Mustață says governments must send a clear message to the gas industry that its days are numbered.
