UK govt: No new coal

The government is reported to be “on the cusp” of greenlighting the UK’s first deep coal mine in 30 years – a project that would increase global emissions and undermine the UK’s chances of meeting its climate targets.

This is reckless behaviour.

This is a critical time to ramp up the pressure on Local Government Secretary Michael Gove to act now to stop plans for a new coal mine in Cumbria and end the era of coal in the UK.

Can you help us keep up the pressure? Add your name.

SIGN THE PETITION

To: Prime Minister Boris Johnson

“Stop plans for a new coal mine in Cumbria now and commit to end the era of coal in the UK”
