Governments purposely do not report record cold temperatures or record cold temperatures crop losses.

Stop polluting NOW!

It is time the U.K. withdraws from this corrupt climate organisation.

Isn’t there enough of ongoing oil & gas activity to meet demands as we transform the energy sector to clean energy?

Faith In God July 23, 2021 - 1:09 AM

Of course allow it. Ignore the hypocritical low information lefties.. Oh what you still want all those oil or petroleum based products? spare me your virtue signalling.

The children of children will make sure those in power now and their children pay the price of they continue

Are they round the bend?

Energy is for the elites. Not you. Not me. ⚡

Wont it be more CO2 efficient to supply oil and gas for our needs in UK rather than having to transport it from abroad? Shipping and pumping through pipes all takes energy.

They will fudge till the conference is over. Then go ahead.

Crazy greenpeace were the reason clean uranium power plants never got built & developed over the last 30 odd years and we instead burnt coal for that period instead 🙈🤦🤦‍♀️

So much for Sturgeon's Green promise when she met the European Greens ! She is not tough enough against fossil fuel lobby. Lazy to keep the status quo. Too easy 😡💚🌐

Energy storage, stupid .

Affordable energy saves lives

Before 1970s not many homes had central heating but when northbsea gas fields were developed 90% of homes are now heated thanks to Affordable gas

Before this gas was available excess winter deaths would spike as people got ill or died of cold homes

This development abound 100% go ahead

Those who want a fossil free world should work in R&D and make hearing homes with eletrixity serviced from wind more affordable than gas boilers or a premature retirement of gas boilers and gas fields will lead to old people dieing from cold homes (and many more losing work days from being more ill.kore frequently)

For those who will say there are solutions. Insulation and heat pumps. Okay install them first then I am ready to hear your argument

Johnson and his Tory elite will all get back handers! They could not give a ** about global warming and climate change. Simply a whitewash! Scary.

Daniel Steward July 23, 2021 - 1:35 AM

Course they will its money

Dam Brooks July 23, 2021 - 1:41 AM

This ridiculous, private profiteering has already destroyed so much of this planet. Unbelievably they Tories are welcoming the chance to open up a new national sore, something that can be passed off as new Post Brexit Jobs, AKA LIES!

IEA says stop drilling. if that happens then oil goes up to $200+/bbl and every consumer on the planet becomes poorer

Ben Ghazi July 23, 2021 - 1:46 AM

Ah Brexit. Sure made the UK a better country…

The Oil & Gas industry is not needed now we know how to make Clean Burning Carbon Negative Algae Bio Fuel, that permanently sequesters 1 Ton of CO2 for every Barrel. If the UK made this transition we would permanently sequester 364 Million Tons of CO2 every year,. The Algae only needs CO2, Sunlight and nutrients that is got from waste water, Landfil runoff and industrial gasses, so cleaning them in the process!. Photo Bio Reactors( PBR) used to grow Algae can be placed almost anywhere, are cheap, easy and quick to build and could be rolled out country wide in every locality within 5-10 years. Creating millions of new we’ll paying, clean local climate saving jobs. Also the £Billions of fuel( and other products) that currently goes straight to big Oil companies, would stay locally and regionally, providing more than enough money to make a complete Green transition!. Algae also produces Compostable products, Nutraceuticals( as Algae is rich in Omega3), great fertilsers, produces Hydrogen, and generate 1.25Watts of electricity from 1 Cubic Metre of Waste Water🌎🌻✊🏽✌🏽.
