Kick Fossil Fuels Out Of UK Politics

Theresa May MP (Prime Minister), Phillip Hammond (Chancellor) and Greg Clark (Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy)

To help stop the worst effects of climate change, the majority of the known reserves of fossil fuels must stay in the ground.

This means there can be no new fossil fuel infrastructure.

No new coal mines. No new oil pipelines. No fracking. Anywhere.

Despite this fact, the fossil fuel industry continues to ignore reality and in doing so has a hugely corrosive effect on efforts to tackle climate change.

Big oil, coal and gas have cast doubt on climate science and actively lobby for taxpayer handouts for dirty energy.

Their influence in UK politics holds back the transition we need to make to a zero-carbon economy built on renewable energy.

This must end. It's time for #fossilfreepolitics.
