Unburnable Episode #6 – The historic court case People vs. Arctic Oil

Seven days before the judge

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.

06: All Rise

As the first snow begins to fall, the lawyers walk up the steps of the courthouse and into the biggest legal battle of their careers.

In the final episode of the series, we travel to Oslo to capture first-hand the tension and excitement of this historic trial as it unfolds within the courtroom. With the future of the Arctic and our planet’s climate at stake, the time for preparation is over. It’s game on.

04: The Path Less Traveled

What makes an activist? What drives someone to devote their life to protecting the planet? We hear from individuals who have chosen to break the mold and take the path less traveled – from Sini Saarela and the Arctic 30 to captain of the open seas Mike Fincken, this episode explores the power and pressure of activism.

Meanwhile, in the waters above the Arctic circle, Statoil is pressing ahead with plans to commence drilling despite the legal dispute. Our story brings us aboard the Greenpeace ship, and joins the team who have decided to confront the oil rig face-to-face…

03: The Gathering

Can a people-powered movement really win a global fight? In this episode, the unprecedented wave of climate justice cases from around the world come together in a single location – the beautiful Lofoten Islands of Norway. From the American youth activists who are suing Trump, to the Swiss Senior Women who have come out of retirement to hold their own government to account, a camp unlike any other brings this global movement together.

In an age of planetary challenges which transcend national borders, has the time come to move into the era of global citizenship? We explore this pressing idea, and discover how technology and social media may not just be making the world smaller – this communication revolution may also be changing the nature of power itself.

02: The Sun and the Darkness

Our modern world was built on oil. But how did we get to this point? With much of the ‘easy oil’ already consumed, we explore why the petroleum industry is now pushing into ever more remote and vulnerable areas like the Arctic. 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 o 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…
