No new fossil fuels and address loss and damage

Botswana is about to welcome a Canadian company into a famously pristine region. What have they been allowed to do?

As this outrageous oil exploration project is planned for this rare pristine wilderness in Botswana, there are others like the French oil exploration in Virunga Park, DRC. This deal was led by Boris Johnson of the UK.

We should all be protesting at the highest levels.

So sad to see one of the few pristine Arctic wilderness environments will now be trashed by Willow Oil company. Fossil fuels are here to stay, and they will retain what we think of as vital for growth but we are knowingly extinguishing the last vestiges of hope for life on this amazing planet.
