The UK has approved a massive coal mine expansion – setting a dangerous precedent that could spark a wave of copycat schemes and spell a comeback for the coal industry.
This pro-fossil fuel push is coming from a hardcore group of anti-green lawmakers who are using the energy crisis to stall climate action. They’re gaining ground, but we have a chance to stop them in their tracks.
A group of committed campaigners, Coal Action Network, has discovered the authorities made serious mistakes in their decision to grant the project a licence. And now they’ve assembled a crack team of lawyers to get the permit overturned in court.
But they’re a tiny group and don’t have enough money to cover the legal costs. That’s why they’re asking for our help.
If we all chip in, we can make sure these anti-coal heroes can take their case to court and have the best chance of winning – keeping 40 million tonnes of coal in the ground and showing governments everywhere that coal can’t win.
Can you chip in to help stop coal's big comeback in the UK and beyond?
