The UK government is set to approve the vast new Rosebank oil field.
But the UN and climate scientists across the globe are in agreement. If we want a liveable climate, we can’t allow any new oil and gas projects or licences.
We can’t let this project go ahead for many reasons:
- Rosebank’s oil will do nothing to lower fuel costs in the UK
- Burning Rosebank’s oil and gas would create more CO2 than the combined annual emissions of the 28 lowest-income countries in the world
- The project would cost the UK public over £750 million
- But oil and gas giant Equinor – majority-owned by the Norwegian government – will take the profits.
