UK: Stop drilling for oil - Ecuador is leading the way

Dear Prime minister,
The people of Ecuador have just voted overwhelmingly to stop drilling for oil in the Amazon - doing ALL of us a favour - and despite the severe loss of income that is resulting from this decision.
We in the UK should contribute to compensation for that loss of income, but even more so: We, as a rich nation, should be ashamed to continue drilling for oil/promoting fossil fuel. Please revoke the permission to drill for (more) oil in the North Sea.

Why is this important?

It is hypocritical to demand a stop of all damage to the world's rain forests - while continuing to promote policies in 'the North' that promote fossil fuel/climate change.
