Video/ Antonio Guterres of the UN: Morality is also needed to sell oil and gas
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in a speech and a message to oil and gas companies and made a call to all governments. Guterres says that these companies are using the situation of the energy crisis to make colossal profits and that this is not moral.
"It is immoral for oil and gas companies to make colossal profits in this energy crisis, at the expense of poor people, communities and climate damage. The profits from this business go for the first quarter of the year of 100 billion dollars in the USA. I suggest to the governments to tax them for these profits and with the tax money to subsidize the poor families", said Guterres.
