Take Action Now

There are lots of ways you can take action on climate change: this page is dedicated to current e-actions and petitions. Support important campaigns in the UK and internationally - and remember when writing letters it is always more effective to do so in your own words!

 

Stop the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership: New Action

This treaty would boost corporate power at the expense of our climate and environment, human and workers’ rights, sovereignty and democracy. Read more here - including updates on the National Day of Action, 12 July.

Now ordinary citizens of Europe have the chance to tell the European Commission what they think about these proposals - please take the time to make a submission. The deadline is 13 July.

 

Stop Cameron's new Fracking Law

 
David Cameron wants to change the law so fracking companies can drill under our homes without permission.  But the plans can’t go through without MPs' votes, so if we can get them to see how unpopular Cameron's idea is, they'll think twice before voting it through when the time comes.
 
 
 

Defend UK wind energy

Please take a moment to sign both of these petitions...

The Conservative party is planning to put in its manifesto a proposed ban on new onshore wind. How does it plan to meet legally binding emissions targets without one of the cheapest forms of clean energy? Nobody knows.

Meanwhile wind farms which have local planning approval are already being blocked - by the personal intervention of Eric Pickles.

Protect forests from exploitation

Forests are not just valuable because of their biodiversity and to those who live in and around them: they are also carbon sinks for the planet. Their destruction to meet our consumer desires - for paper and biofuels, for example - is unacceptable. As for drilling for oil, we know that companies already own five times as much carbon reserves as we can safely burn. 

Update! Oil company Soco announces they will not drill for oil in Virunga national park while it remains a World Heritage Site

This reprieve is an important victory and a credit to campaigners - locals however warn that Soco and the DRC government may seek to have the park de-listed so vigilance is still necessary.

Call for a halt to shipments of illegal timber from Cameroon:

Herakles Farms, a US palm oil company, has taken land without the consent of local communities and been cutting timber to export without proper authority to do so. Tell the Cameroon government and the EU to stop this, enforce the law and protect Cameroon's forests.  Read more.

 

Tell the British Museum to drop BP as a sponsor

"BP: sponsoring our history while destroying our future."

Tell the British Museum that they should not allow BP to use their cultural credibility to whitewash their planet-endangering business model. And check out the video of the museum's Viking invaders. Inspired? Join the Viking flash-horde this Sunday (15 June)!
