Petition Stop Whitehaven Coal Mine in Cumbria
The UK have approved the first deep coal mine in 30 years. The effects of a coal mine will create a major setback in the British climate change efforts. The Government should revoke permission to mine on British soil.
Dr. Laurie Michaelis, a climate expert at the IPCC, has said that emissions the mine could produce will contribute significantly to climate change.
