The protesters asked – on whose side are you…

According to Green Peace, after covering the PM’s house with a black cloth, he asked Sunak a question. They are curious about their position in the fight against climate change. To a livable earth or to the large oil firms. In reality, Rishi Sunak just gave drilling companies the go-ahead to take out oil and gas from the North Sea.

Under this, the government has issued several hundred licenses. Organizations working for the climate have expressed their opposition to this move of the UK government. While the government says that they have taken this decision after careful consideration. This will provide employment to the youth.

Reducing dependence on Russia cost Britain dearly.

Environmental groups claim that the climate situation is getting worse, and Sunak’s policies go against the International Energy Agency’s (IAA) cautions. In fact, the IAA has said that if the world is to be saved from global warming, there should be no new investment in oil and gas exploration.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said on Monday he hoped new policies on oil drilling would provide the UK with energy domestically when it achieved zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Sunak said that even when we meet the zero carbon emission target after 27 years, we will still have to rely on oil and gas for a quarter of the energy. This drilling strategy is appropriate in this circumstance. Along with this, Sunak said that some people want that even after 30 years, we should depend on our enemy countries (Russia) for our essential things.

In reality, before the conflict in Ukraine, Russia was supplying electricity to Europe. But because of the conflict, Europe and the United States have slapped restrictions on Russia’s oil and gas.   Due to this, countries dependent on Russia are facing energy crisis. They are looking for domestic and other options to reduce dependence on Russia.

Sunak also gave his approval for a new coal mine earlier in December, which was a historic decision. On Wednesday, Sunak defended his record in terms of the environment, claiming that he had reduced carbon emissions more effectively than other big nations.
