The charity run by Bill and Melinda Gates, who say the threat of climate change is so serious that immediate action is needed, held at least $1.4bn (£1bn) of investments in the world’s biggest fossil fuel companies, according to a Guardian analysis of the charity’s most recent tax filing in 2013.

The companies include BP, responsible for the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, Anadarko Petroleum, which was recently forced to pay a $5bn environmental clean-up charge and Brazilian mining company Vale, voted the corporation with most “contempt for the environment and human rights” in the world clocking over 25,000 votes in the Public Eye annual awards.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Asset Trust is the world’s largest charitable foundation, with an endowment of over $43bn, and has already given out $33bn in grants to health programmes around the world, including one that helped rid India of polio in 2014.

A Guardian campaign, launched on Monday and already backed by over 95,000 people is asking the Gates to sell their fossil fuel investments. It argues: “Your organisation has made a huge contribution to human progress … yet your investments in fossil fuels are putting this progress at great risk. It is morally and financially misguided to invest in companies dedicated to finding and burning more oil, gas and coal.”

Existing fossil fuel reserves are several times greater than can be burned if the world’s governments are to fulfil their pledge to keep global warming below the danger limit of 2C, but fossil fuel companies continue to spend billions on exploration. In addition to the climate risk, the Bank of England and others argue that fossil fuel assets may pose a “huge risk” to pension funds and other investors as they could be rendered worthless by action to slash carbon emissions.

A landmark report citing climate change published by the Lancet medical journal and University College London concluded that climate change is “the biggest global health threat of the 21st century”.

In their annual letter in January, Bill and Melinda Gates wrote: “The long-term threat [of climate change] is so serious that the world needs to move much more aggressively – right now – to develop energy sources that are cheaper, can deliver on demand, and emit zero carbon dioxide.”

The Guardian analysis of the Gates endowment revealed investments in 35 of the top 200 companies as ranked by the carbon held in their reserves. These included coal giants Anglo American, BHP Billiton, Glencore Xstrata and Peabody Energy, the oil majors Shell, ConocoPhillips, Chevron and Total and Brazilian oil company Petrobras, currently embroiled in a corruption scandal.

“This is very shocking. I never knew that they had so much of this kind of investment,” said Nnimmo Bassey, a Nigerian activist who received the Right Livelihood Award in 2010 for “revealing the full ecological and human horrors of oil production” in the Niger delta where many oil majors operate. “If this is a charity that really care about the health of the people, they ought not to be investing in fossil fuel industries. They should pull back their resources from this sector completely.”

Bill McKibben, who leads the fast-growing Go Fossil Free campaign, said: “The Gates Foundation has worked so hard to grapple with global poverty. But at the same time they’re investing in the same companies that drive climate change, which endless studies now show is one of the key factors behind … global poverty. The developing world deserves better than this kind of tunnel vision.”

He said: “The great industrial fortune of the 20th century, the Rockefeller oil legacy, has begun aggressively divesting from fossil fuel, arguing explicitly that climate change undermines its philanthropy for a better world. It’s time for the great technological fortune of the 21st century to do likewise.”

Prof Hugh Montgomery, a medical doctor at University College London and one of the authors of the UCL/Lancet study said: “I am backing the Guardian divestment campaign because I support the Gates Foundation and am a great fan of their work. I just want to help them to do more good.”

A spokesman for Bill Gates’s private office said: “We respect the passion of advocates for action on climate change, and recognise that there are many views on how best to address it. Bill is privately investing considerable time and resources in the effort [to develop clean energy].”

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation declined to comment on fossil fuel divestment and said all investment decisions were taken by a separate entity, the Asset Trust, which manages the endowment but never makes public comments.

However, the Gates’s charity has a track record of divestment from other sectors, having sold companies linked to the conflict in Sudan and banned tobacco investments. It also sold its stake in a security company G4S, following controversy over its prison contracts in Israel.

The Gates charity investment policy states: “When instructing the investment managers, Bill and Melinda consider issues beyond corporate profits, including the values that drive the foundation’s work. They have defined areas in which the endowment will not invest, such as companies whose profit model is centrally tied to corporate activity that they find egregious. Bill and Melinda regularly re-assess the endowment’s holdings.”

In recent months, the Gates charity sold off its huge stake in ExxonMobil for $766m, which has in the past funded climate change deniers and now argues it is “highly unlikely” that international action on global warming will stop it selling oil and gas “far into the future”. No reason was given and it is unknown whether new fossil fuel investments have been bought.

“At this critical moment in time, if you own fossil fuels, you own climate change,” said Ellen Dorsey, executive director of the $168m Wallace Global Fund, which has fully divested from fossil fuels and now invests in renewables and energy efficiency.

She has worked with many of the 75 other philanthropic organisations that have followed suit. “At a minimum, our investments should not be driving the problems we ask our grantees to solve. And those who acted early avoided the collapse of coal and oil prices. They were rewarded with strong financial returns: doing well while doing good.”

Dorsey said fossil fuel divestment by the Gates charity would be a huge boost for the fight against climate change: “For a foundation with such global prominence to lend its full weight – with grants and investments combined – would be game changing.”

As the crisis escalates…

… in our natural world, we refuse to turn away from the climate catastrophe and species extinction. For The Guardian, reporting on the environment is a priority. We give reporting on climate, nature and pollution the prominence it deserves, stories which often go unreported by others in the media. At this pivotal time for our species and our planet, we are determined to inform readers about threats, consequences and solutions based on scientific facts, not political prejudice or business interests.

More people are reading and supporting The Guardian’s independent, investigative journalism than ever before. And unlike many news organisations, we have chosen an approach that allows us to keep our journalism accessible to all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford. But we need your ongoing support to keep working as we do.

The Guardian will engage with the most critical issues of our time – from the escalating climate catastrophe to widespread inequality to the influence of big tech on our lives. At a time when factual information is a necessity, we believe that each of us, around the world, deserves access to accurate reporting with integrity at its heart.

Our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. Guardian journalism is free from commercial and political bias and not influenced by billionaire owners or shareholders. This means we can give a voice to those less heard, explore where others turn away, and rigorously challenge those in power.

We need your support to keep delivering quality journalism, to maintain our openness and to protect our precious independence. Every reader contribution, big or small, is so valuable. Support The Guardian from as little as £1 – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

Trudeau working with Aust, NZ on spy fears

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he is working with Australia, New Zealand and other members of the Five Eyes intelligence sharing network after the shock arrest of a top Canadian law enforcement official.

There are fears Cameron Ortis, a director-general with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s intelligence unit, may have exposed highly-sensitive information from alliance members to criminal groups or foreign entities.

Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain and the United States are members of Five Eyes and any breach of trust could place clandestine operations, informants, witnesses in protection and other confidential activities in danger.

“We are continuing to work with our Five Eyes allies on this matter which the authorities are taking extremely seriously,” Mr Trudeau told reporters on Tuesday.

“We all understand I am not going to make more comments on this delicate situation.”

Ortis, 47, was charged on Friday under a 2012 security information law used to prosecute spies.

He is accused of offences including obtaining information to give to a foreign entity or terrorist group, communicating or confirming special operational information and breach of trust.

RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki would not confirm, but did not deny, reports authorities were led to Ortis while investigating Vincent Ramos, the Vancouver-based head of encrypted phone company Phantom Secure.

She would only say the RCMP was working with the FBI in 2018 when they “came across certain documents that led us to believe that there might be some internal corruption”.

The RCMP, FBI, Australian Federal Police and other law enforcement agencies were involved in the probe of Ramos.

Ramos was a major player in the Australian criminal underworld with the FBI estimating of the 20,000 Phantom Secure devices in service around the world, 10,000 were used by Australian criminals.

The phones were designed to thwart law enforcement.

Ramos was sentenced to nine years’ prison in a San Diego court in May for “leading a criminal enterprise that facilitated the transnational importation and distribution of narcotics through the sale of encrypted communication devices and services”.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, citing an assessment by Canada’s Communications Security Establishment cybersecurity agency, reported Ortis had allegedly reached out to Ramos.

“I have information that I am confident you will find very valuable,” one email from Ortis to Ramos allegedly said, according to the CSE documents.

Another Phantom Secure customer was Owen Hanson, the California-based drug trafficking kingpin, who US prosecutors said used six Phantom Secure devices to coordinate the transportation of more than a tonne of cocaine from Mexico into the US and on to Canada and Australia.

Hanson is serving a 21-year prison sentence in the US.

US federal court filings also detailed how Ramos sold Phantom Secure devices to Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s Sinaloa drug cartel, a major supplier of cocaine to Australia.

Commissioner Lucki said she could “definitely imagine that there is concern amongst our Five Eyes community” following Ortis’ arrest, but she said “co-operation with our allies has not been compromised” and sharing of information between nations continued.

Top Iran Lawmaker Calls for Seizure of Canadian Ships

Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, former Chairman of regime's Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission

A senior lawmaker of the Iranian regime has called for the regime’s military to seize Canadian vessels in the Persian Gulf.

Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, who previously chaired the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian regime’s Majlis (Parliament), made the remarks after a ruling by the Canadian Supreme Court ordering the sale of the Iranian regime’s assets in Canada with proceeds going to victims of the regime’s terrorist acts.

Falahatpisheh told the state-run ICANA news agency on Sunday, September 16, 2019, that the regime should confiscate Canadian assets inside Iran. He added: “We must seize vessels carrying goods and products to Canada, and this must happen urgently.”

The Canadian Supreme Court ruling was made on August 7, 2019. Two buildings owned by Iran’s regime in Ottawa and Toronto – the Iranian Cultural Center and the Center for Iranian Studies – have since been sold for about $28 million, and the proceeds were distributed among victims of the regime’s terrorism. The victims were also awarded a share of some $2.6 million seized from the Iranian regime’s bank accounts.

“An official list of Canadian assets and properties inside Iran should be prepared,” Falahatpisheh said.

Iran’s regime unlawfully seized the British oil tanker Stena Impero on July 19, 2019, shortly after the U.K. detained a vessel in Gibraltar that was allegedly carrying Iranian crude to Syria in violation of European Union sanctions. Last month, Gibraltar released that ship, which has been renamed the Adrian Darya 1. Gibraltar and the U.K. have since accused the vessel of delivering its cargo to Syria.

The regime’s terrorist Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has also carried out a string of terrorist attacks on other oil tankers in international waters in the Strait of Hormuz over the summer.

The Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act was passed in Canada in 2012 and allowed for non-diplomatic properties of governments accused of sponsoring terrorism to be seized in favor of victims’ families. Plaintiffs won their case against Iran’s regime in Ontario. Tehran lost its appeal at the higher court, allowing the properties to be sold.

Under Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Canada cut diplomatic relations with Iran’s regime in 2012, closing the Canadian embassy in Tehran and expelling the Iranian regime’s so-called ‘diplomats’ from Ottawa.
