Unbelievable! As the UK prepares to host crucial global climate talks, our government signed off new oil and gas licences in the North Sea.
Boris Johnson said that we would “lead the way” in fighting climate change.
This is NOT climate leadership. Instead of propping up the oil industry, the government should support North Sea rig workers in training to work in renewable energy and to create green energy for everyone in the UK.
Sign the Greenpeace petition at https://bit.ly/31EPEM4 calling on the government not to green light oil and gas and invest in renewables instead.
More than 39,000 have already signed – help them to get to 50,000!
The government has seen young people on the streets striking, they’ve seen direct action across the UK and they know public opinion on climate change is not the same as it was decades ago. Politicians are being forced to move with the times by people like us — but for the sake of the climate we need to make them move faster.
