Scientists tell us that two-thirds of known fossil fuel reserves must stay in the ground if we are to avoid catastrophic climate change, but our politicians continue a race to exploit even the most unconventional and inefficient of fossil fuels. In the UK, our government has announced an energy policy that involves building 30 new gas power stations which would lock us into a fossil fuel future and mean we fail to meet our legally binding climate change targets.
We need to stop them, we need to wake up to the reality of climate change.
Time To Act! is our new upcoming campaign designed to show the government the massive public demand for renewables and to pressure them into doing the only sensible thing - taking action on climate change.
Time to Act! Launching this October! More information coming very soon...
Earlier this week, I had the honour to be one of a group that blockaded the entrance to Cuadrilla’s test drilling site at Balcombe along with Green MP CarolineLucas, who was subsequently arrested. The blockade was one of many non-violent direct actions that took place on Monday in response to Cuadrilla’s plans to carry out exploratory drilling in the area, and the failure of local government to respect the wishes of a community strongly opposed to fracking.
