The planet’s natural carbon sinks, like forests and oceans, are vital for keeping the level of harmful CO2 in the atmosphere down, and Earth's temperature from increasing. But our actions are making it harder for carbon sinks to do their job. That’s why we work to protect them.

“The UK Government must stop hiding behind planning policy to justify business-as-usual approvals of highly polluting projects. It needs to engage with reality and own the decisions that could make or break our long-term climate targets” – lawyer Sam Hunter Jones

It's now up to Drax to explain how this project squares with the @theCCCuk's latest net zero recommendations. Also if a gas mega plant fits what it told investors about a new focus on "flexible and renewable" energy, if indeed it still wants to build it.

Breaking: UK Court of Appeal decides Drax can still build Europe's largest gas plant if it wants to.

But ruling sets important precedents:
•Major energy projects can be rejected on climate change grounds
•The Govt must consider carbon lock-in risks of each new project

The Bulgarian gvt is set to allow several large coal plants, located in the country’s #AirPollution hotspot, to emit almost 2x as much sulphur dioxide than is allowed under EU law. We wrote to the @EU_Commission with @GpBulgaria and @zazemiata.

Bulgaria is the only country in the EU still breaching the bloc’s sulphur dioxide limits. @ClientEarth, @GpBulgaria and @zazemiata have uncovered new evidence that Bulgarian authorities are not taking sufficient measures to reduce the severe SO2 pollution.

Petrochemicals giant #Ineos made a surprise announcement last week: they have cancelled one of two major #plastics units in Antwerp. This follows our court win against them in November.
