Boris Johnson has signed off new oil and gas in the North Sea. He’s bailing out oil bosses, rather than building a secure future for oil workers and our climate.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told voters “I want to see that transition away from fossil fuels towards renewable sources of energy.” Yet she’s not standing up to Boris Johnson now.
Existing reserves for oil and gas - including in the UK - would push the world past the agreed climate limit of 1.5°C. This means we must begin to wind down UK production to tackle the climate crisis - starting with an end to new licensing.
We need to make sure oil and gas workers aren't hung out to dry as coal miners and shipbuilders were in the 1980s. It's time Nicola Sturgeon’s government prioritised workers, local communities and the climate.

This is a joint petition with Platform and Greenpeace working together for a just transition away from fossil fuels.
