Did you know that the UK Government (i.e. you and me, if you are a UK tax payer) are funding climate-wrecking projects? Our hard-earned cash is being used to fuel the climate crisis and make things worse!
The UK is due to host the UN climate talks in November 2020 and we must be seen to be leading the way. Ending investment in oil and gas projects is a golden opportunity for the government to look good at the climate talks – and we all know how governments like to look good. JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs are doing it – why can’t the UK government do it too?
Friends of the Earth have a petition we can all sign (and/or share) asking the UK Government to stop funding fossil fuel project abroad.
