CCC London usually meets monthly. All of our London meetings are on our events calendar (or see details of forthcoming events on the left). Everyone who has signed up to the email list (eg through the Join/Donate page on the website) and has given us an address in London or the Home Counties (Essex, Kent, Surrey, Herts, Beds, Bucks) should get email notification of the meetings - but if you are not getting this for some reason, let us know. Alternatively use the contact numbers above to find out about the next CCC London Meeting - or any of the extra meetings.
Though London functions largely as a single unit, there are also some smaller local groups within London (with plenty of overlap between the activities of the smaller local groups and the bigger London group):

Kirklees Campaign against Climate Change
"What we are seeing, here and now, is the transformation of the atmospheric physics of this planet. Three weeks before the likely minimum, the melting of Arctic sea ice has already broken the record set in 2007(1). The daily rate of loss is now 50% higher than it was that year(2).The daily sense of loss – of the world we loved and knew – cannot be quantified so easily" George Monbiot August 27th
The Arctic Vigil
St George's Square Huddersfield
Friday 28th September 6.20pm-7.30 pm.
Wear white (or something white).Bring your own jar for tea light.
Readings, learning, public engagement, silence.
"What is happening is that the Arctic is warming up 3-4 times as fast as the rest of the world. The sea ice grows less thick in winter, and melts more in summer, such that the entire ice cover is now on the point of collapse. The extra open water already created by the retreating ice allows bigger waves to be generated by storms, which are sweeping away the surviving ice. It is truly the case that it will be all gone by 2015. The consequences are enormous - a huge boost to global warming from two sources, the reduction in global albedo caused by the replacement of ice by open water, and an acceleration of methane release into the atmosphere as the warm open water causes seabed permafrost to melt.”Professor Peter Wadhams, Head of the Polar Oceans Physics Group at Cambridge University
The Arctic ice cap is disappearing before our eyes: this is the first large scale unmistakable impact of climate change, clearly visible from space. The arctic sea-ice broke an all time record for lowest ever extent on Friday 24th August (after breaking several other records according to other methodologies of measurement by other scientific institutions etc…). This was a bombshell because it was nearly a month before you would expect the ice to reach its seasonal minimum – it is still decreasing now and we can expect it to continue decreasing until around mid September
Activists in Kirklees Campaign against Climate Change organised a Zero Carbon tour on 7th May 2011. They cycled on a thirty mile tour of the authority delivering letters to, or discussing EDM 853 with Kirklees MPs.On the way they visited sites of progress towards Zero Carbon Britain such as Kirklees Council projects (e.g. wind turbines). For a full account of the tour see here.

2012 AGM and Public Meeting – 16th October - The Sheffield Campaign against Climate Change will hold their AGM followed by a Public Meeting at Quaker Meeting House, 10 St James St, S1 2EW – near Cathedral tram stop. Refreshments from 6.30 pm, AGM 7.00pm and public meeting 7.30 to 9pm on Tuesday 16th October
TITLE: A Frack-Free Future: Opposing UK’s second ‘Dash for Gas’ at 7.30 pm 16th Oct
A speaker from Frack Off the Brighton-based extreme energy action network that has been leading opposition to Hydraulic Fracturing (fracking) and other extreme methods of extracting fossil fuels. They have done extensive research into all aspects of UK based fracking and are organising direct action in collaboration with local residents in affected areas. www.frack-off.org.uk
AND Simon Bowens, Friends of the Earth, Yorkshire and Humber Campaigns Director on local fracking potential and FOE actions.
We have failed to control global CO2 emissions. We continue to invest in ever more extreme extraction of fossils fuels rather than investing in alternative energy or reduce consumption through programmes of housing insulation and public transport. This is a chance to hear about actions that are being taken around the country and likely local extreme fossil fuel extraction sites.

Sheffield Campaign against Climate Change has been campaigning strongly on climate jobs. Their petition calling for the creation of 10,000 climate jobs in the city collected 2,500 signatures. This meant that it went before the City Council, and they are now working with the Scrutiny Board to look at ways in which the proposals could be implemented. The Climate Jobs Caravan came to Sheffield on 18 and 19 May 2012. To find out more or get involved, please contact Joan Miller: 0114 2498613, sheffieldclimatenewsgmail.com
