We’re taking the government to court to #StopRosebank

Campaigners are taking legal action over the controversial Rosebank oil field. We believe that this decision is not just morally and economically wrong, but unlawful. The government’s claim that drilling Rosebank is compatible with the UK’s obligations and a safe climate is a lie - and we will prove it in court.

If we want a liveable climate, we can't allow any new oil and gas projects or licences. The UK must stop Rosebank and all new oil & gas fields.

Each new field delays a just transition to renewable energy and locks us even further into an expensive, climate-wrecking energy system.

To meet the the 1.5°C target of the Paris Agreement, there can be no new investment in oil, gas, or coal.

This means no Rosebank.

The UK government has approved Equinor's massive Rosebank oil field. The climate impacts of this project are devastating.

We are currently way off track to limit warming to 1.5°C, which is deemed the safest, liveable temperature rise still possible. Burning the fossil fuels in existing projects will push us past this target. Adding new developments like Rosebank will push us closer to parts of our world becoming uninhabitable.

Governments must begin phasing out fossil fuel infrastructure now, including the UK, which is the second biggest oil and gas producer in Europe. We cannot let them approve any more oil and gas projects, including Rosebank.

The UK should be winding down oil & gas production and supporting a just transition for affected workers & communities

People in the UK want an affordable energy supply that doesn’t put our climate at risk.

This government is failing on both counts if it keeps approving new fields like Rosebank. Right now, most of us are locked into using fossil fuels and forced to pay extortionate heating and fuel bills, all the while knowing that the UK has the best renewable resources in Europe that could supply us with affordable, less polluting energy. Meanwhile, companies like Shell and Equinor tell us – and our government – that change isn’t possible (yet), while they continue to rip us off.

We should be winding down production of oil and gas while making sure that workers and impacted communities are not left behind – this is what’s called a ‘just transition’.

Done properly, with the right support and investment, the move away from fossil fuels could see three jobs in clean energy for every oil and gas job at risk. Only those currently raking in oil and gas profits would lose.

It's up to us to #StopRosebank and all new oil & gas projects.

What is the Rosebank oil field?

Rosebank is the biggest undeveloped oil and gas field in the North Sea. An application has been submitted for UK government approval to start developing the field. Rosebank is huge. Burning Rosebank’s oil and gas would create more CO2 than the combined emissions of all 28 low-income countries in the world.
