Fossil fuel companies are planning to launch over 40 new coal, oil and gas extraction projects in the UK. During a climate and energy crisis, they’d add even more fuel to the fire.
The science is clear: to avoid climate breakdown, there must be no new fossil fuel extraction projects. We can continue to extract oil and gas from existing projects as part of a just transition that protects the livelihoods of fossil fuel workers and consumers. But new projects cannot go ahead.
Instead of locking us into expensive fossil fuels for decades, the government can slash our energy bills by insulating more homes and ramping up the production of homegrown renewable energy. Wind and solar power are much cheaper and quicker to develop than new oil and gas fields, which take 28 years on average to start producing.
Tell the government to stop all new coal, oil and gas extraction projects. Please sign and share our petition today.
