UK energy crisis: 70 world scientists demand PM to end oil and gas investment

  • October 18, 2021

Dr James Hansen, a former NASA scientist known for his vocal role in urging climate change action, was one of a host of experts to sign the letter.

 He said the UK needs to take urgent action in setting out a plan to phase out fossil fuels to low-carbon electricity sources like renewables and nuclear energy.

He told The Independent: “Boris Johnson could lead the world toward a bright future if he would announce such a plan or firm intentions to construct such a plan.

“Without such, Cop26 will be just like the prior Cops…where leaders promise to pursue goals for some period in the distant future.”

 Dr Friederike Otto, one of the world’s leading experts in extreme weather science and an author of a recent landmark report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), said it was clear further fossil fuel investment would prevent Mr Johnson of hitting his net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
