Just 20 fossil fuel companies are directly linked to more than one third of all greenhouse gas emissions since 1965. The company top of the list - Saudi Aramco - is responsible for 4.38% on its own while the top four privately-owned firms - Chevron, Exxon, BP and Shell - have contributed 10%.
The list shows both the need for nationalisation and public ownership of these companies - but as many on the list are already state owned - also the need to go further and run these companies under democratic workers' control and management as part of a planned socialist economy.
