The Energy Bill - Why we need a #vote4cleanpower


Today and tomorrow the House of Commons will be gearing up again to debate and vote on the latest version of the Energy Bill. Campaign against Climate Change is supporting the inclusion of the amendments tabled by Conservative MP Tim Yeo and Labour’s Barry Gardiner and pushing for a #vote4cleanpower and a step away from a ‘dash for gas’.


Balcombe unites against Fracking

Last Thursday afternoon the Campaign against Climate Change (CCC) office jumped on a train and headed down to Balcombe, a small village in rural West Sussex.  Balcombe is a typical home counties village with winding lanes, a range of traditional cottages and houses centered around some of the most british of institutions, a tea shop and a pub. Adding an oil company into the mix may not seem the most obvious choice for this rural idyll.
