Stop funding climate-wrecking oil and gas overseas (Friends of the Earth)
The UK government is pumping millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money into oil and gas projects around the world – fuelling the climate crisis.
From China to Brazil, your money is being used to help the fossil fuel industry exploit other countries’ natural resources for profit.
This has to stop. And right now we have the opportunity.
The government wants to look good when it hosts the UN climate talks in November. It’s claiming to be a climate leader.
True climate leadership would mean investment in clean energy at home and abroad – not overseas oil drilling and power plants. It would mean helping vulnerable people deal with the impacts of climate breakdown. Not making it worse.
Please sign our petition – and ask the government to stop funding climate-wrecking projects abroad.
