Good news! Scotland didn't breach legal air pollution limits in 2022. This is the first time since the limit was brought in in 2010 (excluding 2020 which was impacted by lockdowns). This is a clear sign that the LEZs are already working. foe.scot/the-most-polluted-s…

Oil giants set to make 'obscene' £160 BILLION profit while millions of people struggle to heat homes. 🤬🤬🤬 Five major climate polluters are expected to earn £5,000 a second! Our energy system must be transformed away from harmful fossil fuels. mirror.co.uk/money/oil-giant…

@Equinor More than 130,000 people have signed a petition opposing your plans to develop the huge Rosebank oilfield. The resistance is growing and we won't stand down #StopRosebank #EquinorOut
Replying to @FoEScot
💃💃 Get up! Get Down! Keep your carbon in the ground!🕺🕺 Burning fossil fuels is driving a global climate crisis. But 👉the UK Government has approved new oil and gas fields👈, and is encouraging companies to look for even more under the north sea. #StopRosebank #cop27

🚫 No new oil & gas for a liveable planet 🚫@Equinor is relentlessly pursuing new oil and gas projects around the world including Rosebank, the largest undeveloped oil and gas field in the UK. As parents we won’t look the other way… #StopRosebank #EquinorOut #ParentsForFuture

Strong & important opening statement from @vanessa_vash at the #noradconference. Tells 🇳🇴 to stop it’s hypocritical behavior and portraying itself as a climate leader: -Let me be clear: there is no such thing as «clean oil». Norway should stop any new investment in fossil fuels.

BREAKING! After 33 years, BP's sponsorship of the @RoyalOperaHouse in London has come to an end! 🎶🎭🥳 This is a seismic shift, a near wholesale rejection across the arts of BP’s brand and the business it represents! 🙌🙌🙌 theguardian.com/culture/2023… #FossilFreeCulture #DropBP

Another day, another absurd subsidy for UK oil & gas firms: companies will effectively be paid by the public to build wind farms to electrify their oil & gas rigs. That's a perk you DON'T get if building a wind farm to put energy on the grid. Ridiculous. thetimes.co.uk/article/taxpa…
