Greenpeace Africa wants big oil companies to be held accountable for climate crisis

# Greenpeace Africa says the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events is a direct consequence of the reckless scramble for fossil fuels in Africa by international oil corporations. The Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal experienced deadly heavy rains and flooding last week, while the Western Cape saw its second cut-off low system. Greenpeace Africa says these events underscore the climate emergency and the need for major oil and gas producers like Shell and Total to stop drilling in South Africa.
