Why Stop Cambo?
If we want a liveable climate – meaning temperatures rise no more than 1.5°C – there can be no new investment in oil, gas or coal. A safe climate means no Cambo.
Earlier this year, the head of the influential International Energy Agency, Dr Fatih Birol, warned: "If governments are serious about the climate crisis, there can be no new investments in oil, gas and coal, from now – from this year."
When the latest climate assessment by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was released this summer, UN chief, António Guterres, called it a “code red for humanity” that should “sound a death knell for fossil fuels”.
Already, the amount of oil and gas in the UK’s existing fields will – if we burn it all – produce emissions greater than our share of what scientists say is safe for the planet. The world cannot afford to open new fossil fuel frontiers. For the UK, this starts with rejecting Cambo.
