Unburnable Episode #2 – The historic court case People vs. Arctic Oil

An unprecedented legal battle for our planet’s future is about to take place.
This November, one of the largest people-powered movements in modern history will assemble to fight climate change in a new and powerful way: by bringing it into the courtroom. Standing in the dock will be the Norwegian government, which recently sanctioned new areas for oil exploration in the Arctic. Unburnable will tell the story of this momentous legal challenge, and the global fight to protect our most fundamental human rights.

The Sun and the Darkness

From indigenous life in the far north to first-hand accounts of the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico, we embark on a journey which brings us to the dawn of the next great energy revolution. Norway may have used its oil to become one of the richest nations on Earth but its leaders now have a big choice to make. And this time it’s not just an environmental debate…
