Jacob Rees-Mogg wants to EXPAND a disastrous coal mine in Wales – and now the UK coal regulator has approved the hair-brained scheme!
It’s a disaster that could spark a wave of copycat coal mining schemes across the country, driving up emissions just as we need to be slashing them. But we still have a chance to stop it!
Our partners at Coal Action Network have discovered that the UK Coal Authority made serious mistakes in its 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 stopping Rees-Mogg and pals getting similar mines approved across the UK. Can you chip in to help?
