I have just got an email from fightforthefuture: With the news that Google’s former CEO, Eric Schmidt, is being discussed for positions, and that former Facebook leaders are acting as advisors on the transition team, we need to act fast to make sure corporate lobbyists and execs don’t get appointed to positions of power within the administration. — … and I, the author of this page, personally do not welcome a fromer Google CEO in such a position either as Google still censors its search results for my pages: see my previous messages about it (or: click on ‘type: new’ in ViewRSS). Facebook on the other hand is even worse. With Facebook Basics they wanted to abolish the free internet (net neutrality) by offering Facebook-only internet at uncompetitively low rates that would force competitors to surrender starting with developing countries.

É uma pena que a iniciativa de responsabilidade corporativa na Suíça tem falhado pois não teve a maioria dos cantões, embora a maioria das pessoas têm votado a favor da iniciativa. Se olharmos para a França, então uma lei vinculativa da cadeia de abastecimento já é realidade. Até a União Europeia anunciou a publicação de um projeto de lei para 2021.

It is a pity that the corporate responisbility initiative in Switzerland has lacked the majority of cantons although a majority of people voted in favour of the initiative. If we look for France then a binding supply chain law is already reality. Even the European Union has announced to publish a draft law for 2021.

Schade daß in der Schweiz die Konzernverantwortungsinitiative nicht durchgegangen ist. Es haben sich zwar eine Mehrheit der Bürger dafür ausgesprochen aber in der Ständeversammlung fehlte eine solche. In Frankreich etwa ist ein Lieferkettengesetz längst Realität und auch die Europäische Union hat für 2021 einen Gesetzesentwurf angekündigt.

As the following article from the Guardian shows it is a real threat that Joe Biden could hire fossil fuel cronies to implement climate protection. That sounds weird and would fail for sure. The linked petition tells Joe Biden to nominate a fossil free cabinet which then needs to be confirmed by the Senate. Leaders should ideally be free of corporate influence, especially from the fossil fuels. The petition embraces the nominees for key positions like the Secretaries of Agriculture, Interior, and Energy, as well as who will lead the EPA under Biden.
