Come with us to Warsaw for COP19


For this year's COP, we're joining forces with Climate and Social Justice of Belgium to mobilize as many activists as possible to march on the streets of Warsaw. We do this in the promise that:

- We will not turn away from the climate negotiations!

- We will not forget to act and put pressure on global processes!

- We will mobilize again against imposed false solutions!

- We will fight together for climate and social justice!

 

We are grateful for anybody who can spare four days in November to join us in our fight: first, on the of evening Thursday 14th November, we will take the coach from London to Brussels.

On the Friday, we will meet with fellow activists mobilized by Climate and Social Justice in order to take the train to Warsaw.

On Saturday, we will march in the streets of Warsaw alongside fellow activists from around the world, followed by a joint meeting with experienced activists taking to the mic.

The return journey will begin in Warsaw on the Sunday and end in London on the Monday morning  -

It will cost £175 per person and you have the option to pay in two installments; not bad for a trip to Eastern Europe!

(and there's no need to worry about sleeping arrangements, we have that covered, but you will have to buy your own food)

IPCC Mythbusting

The latest IPCC report makes the choice that humanity faces yet more stark, both the clarity of the evidence and the urgency to take action. Yet those who have a vested interest in fossil fuel consumption continue to spread doubt and confusion. Here are some of the myths they propagate:

Myth No. 1: Scientists still aren't certain humans are causing climate change

The latest number put on scientists' certainty is 95%. What does 95% certain mean? That they are about as sure as that cigarette smoking causes cancer. And this is a good analogy for more than one reason. The tobacco industry and its paid lobbyists fought desperately to deny this science when it first emerged. Smoking is also a good example of how humans can be very very bad at taking sensible decisions and weighing up risk. But when it comes to cutting carbon emissions, it's not just our own health and wellbeing we're risking, it's all future generations. It really is time to act.

Time to Act! Wake up to Climate Change #3

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...
