UK government handed out 24 new license for oil and gas drilling

Despite their targets to reach net zero emissions, UK government has given a go head to oil and gas drilling and awarded 24 new licenses to 17 companies as part of efforts to extend production in the ageing oil and gas basin, despite knowing very well that the fossil fuel industry is driving climate crisis.https://www.theguardian.com/business/2024/jan/31/grossly-irresponsible-uk-hands-out-24-new-north-sea-oil-and-gas-licences

        This decision seems contradictory to the UK's net zero emissions targets and may hinder progress towards a more sustainable future.

          This flies completely in the face of the science; no NEW fossil fuel development if we are serious about trying to stop additional heating. Already we are seeing serious disruption to food and water security around the world, including the UK. The UK Government needs to act like the global leaders that they claim to be, as it stands they are actively, knowingly destroying the safe future and ecosystems that we all depend upon. Renewables are both faster and cheaper. This is a climate wrecking decision and should be called out at every level including the UK Labour party, the next likely government , who should be saying very clearly that no new fossil fuel development will be allowed under their watch, including the revoking of these licences.

                This is shameful, the UK government must stop investing in gas and oil completely.

                  Investing in oil and gas is a step backward.

                        The decision to issue more licenses for oil and gas drilling is disappointing, considering the growing global emphasis on renewable energy.
