Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to call public attention to the ultra-rich individuals who benefit most from -- and are most responsible for -- the deepening climate crisis that is destabilizing global ecosystems and devastating the lives of the planet's most vulnerable peoples. Today's single biggest threat to our global climate commons is the group of billionaires who profit most from its pollution and, in turn, push government policies that promote more fossil fuels. IFG is releasing this report as two important global debates intensify (the need for climate change policies, and the corruption of government by corporations & the uber-wealthy), yet the links between them are rarely drawn. The report aims to connect some of the dots that show a pattern of power relationships dominating both deadlocked debates which together could help illuminate ways forward for change on all fronts. Globalization has shifted financial wealth and political power upward to a group of Ultra High Net-Worth Individuals, so "Outing the Oligarchy" aims to inform both the climate community and the Occupy movement by "following the money" to the very top.
