Climate warning

The UK will drill for more oil and gas in the North Sea

The UK government has announced plans to allow a big expansion of drilling for oil and gas in the North Sea in a move that environmental activists have described as a taking a “wrecking ball” to the country’s climate commitments. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said Monday that he hoped the plans would provide the UK with domestically-sourced energy while it transitions to a net zero economy by 2050. “Even when we’ve reached net zero in 2050, a quarter of our energy needs will come from oil and gas. But there are those who would rather that it come from hostile states than from supplies we have here at home,” Sunak said in a statement. https://www.cnn.com/2023/07/31/energy/sunak-north-sea-oil-gas-licenses/index.html

    This move by the UK government is contradictory to its climate commitments.

        Mostly populists and rightwing people do contrary to what science recommends, if you are a political leader this is a toxic combo for our planet and our future

          Continued investments in oil and gas is a step in the wrong direction.

            This is absurd. How the UK turns a blind eye to the effects of climate change is still unrealistic

              Even with all the effects we have experienced the last couple of months? This is absurd

                  We try to move a step ahead by looking for ways to get sustainable energy,even before the thought matures a huge project pops out encouraging fossils which is very disturbing to the climate activists.

                        @wersley_mhlanga It's sad that they are ways that they can get energy from other sources but they choose not to because they are powerful.
