If governments are serious about the climate crisis

There can be no new oil, gas and coal from now - from this year

Faith Birol (May 2021)
Executive Director International Energy Agency

Doing things the 'normal' way didn't work

COP26 has failed
There are no meaningful commitments to halt fossil fuel production, our future now a reckless gamble.

Carry on emitting today and hope at some future date huge carbon sucking technology will solve the problem.

We know carbon is already killing us today, and yet global emissions are still rising. Oil is treated as more valuable than our culture, our heritage, our bodies.

More valuable than the beautiful web of life on earth, more valuable than home.

whats next?

We have to face up to the magnitude of the crisis and choose: will we be bystanders complicit in the greatest ever genocide or will we resist so we can look future generations in the eye and proudly say, whatever happens,

"I did all
I could".

The new campaign 
JUST STOP OIL will mobilise


people from all walks of life to oppose government plans to allow 40 new oil, gas and coal projects by 2025


That the UK government makes a statement that it will immediately halt all future licensing and consents for the exploration, development and production of fossil fuels in the UK.


It’s the very first step to ensuring our survival. We already have more oil and gas than we can afford to burn. Let’s get on with ending our reliance on fossil fuels completely: by powering ahead with renewables and cutting energy demand; by insulating Britain and rethinking how we travel; and by ensuring that no-one is left behind and everyone’s voice is heard.


We are a rapidly growing movement, holding 20-30 public meetings per week, online and in person, across the UK. There is a role for everyone.
