Verdensomspennende underskriftsaksjon for å stoppe tjæresandprosjektene til Statoil

Norge forsøker å framstå som et land som tar klimaansvar. Det er imidlertid en svært oljesvart bakside som den norske regjeringen forsøker å skjule så godt de kan. En av de virkelig store syndene mot framtida er at regjeringen støtter opp under Statoils investeringer i tjæresand. Dette er noe av det mest destruktive som foregår og er en alvorlig trussel mot framtida. Det er i denne sammenheng startet en verdensomspennende underskriftsaksjon for å få Statoil til å trekke seg ut av tjæresandprosjektene.

Her kan du signere underskriftsaksjonen for å bidra til en mer bærekraftig verden.

Her kan du lese infoteksten fra Avaaz:

Norway wants to be a world environmental leader at a key UN meeting next week — but the government is backing a dirty investment that could mean game over for the climate, and it’s up to us to stop them. 

Norwegian giant Statoil is a major player in the Canadian tar sands, one of the dirtiest and most carbon-intensive fuels known. In fact, the tar sands contain so much carbon that extracting it would be a death sentence for the planet. But Statoil is two-thirds owned by the Norwegian state, and the government can order the company to stop this disastrous project.

In days, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg will arrive at a crucial meeting of heads of state in Rio de Janeiro to trumpet Norway’s climate leadership to the world. So let’s raise our voices before he gets there to ensure he stops this dirty investment and doesn’t tar our climate reputation. Sign the petition — it will be delivered to the media when 10,000 people have signed — and send this to everyone you know

To Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg:

We call upon you to immediately end Statoil’s investment in the Canadian tar sands. The tar sands are among the dirtiest and most carbon-intensive fuels known, and this investment of public funds does untold damage to Norway’s international climate reputation.
