Stop Climate Chaos


Topic “Stop Climate Chaos”

People power has helped tip the balance on new carbon targets!

The government has now accepted the advice of the independent Committee on Climate Change and agreed to strong climate change targets for the UK.

Last week the government was split on whether to accept this advice, but pressure from people like you, as well as an outcry from Stop Climate Chaos organisations and other groups like Green Alliance and 38 Degrees, pushed David Cameron to step in and do the right thing.

E.ON have shelved Kingsnorth plans

E.ON has shelved its plans for a new dirty coal-fired power station at Kingsnorth! Marking a huge campaign victory for all of us in the coalition, and beyond, news came through last night that the energy company is delaying a decision on Kingsnorth for three years!

Your sustained campaigning has undoubtedly had a big impact on this decision. It just goes to show that campaigning works.

Gordon Brown's climate manifesto for Copenhagen

In a manifesto launched today, Prime Minister Gordon Brown has pledged UK leadership in tackling climate change during the run-up to the UN climate summit in Copenhagen this December. Alongside the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Ed Miliband, he has outlined his vision for a new deal where the emissions of developed nations will peak by 2020 (we believe the deal should be no later than 2015) and decline thereafter.

NUS are 100th member of Stop Climate Chaos!

We are delighted to welcome the NUS and their members to the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition - the UK’s largest group of people dedicated to tackling climate change.

Susan Nash, Co-convenor of the Society and Citizenship zone at NUS said,

NUS is delighted to join Stop Climate Chaos, many of our members already play a crucial role in the fight against destructive climate change from a local level right up to campaigning on a international scale. From educating our seven million members to continuing to campaign and lobby nationally NUS is pleased to be standing alongside our partners in SCC.

We have fewer than 100 months to reverse the growth in global carbon emissions, otherwise global warming will almost certainly exceed the danger threshold of 2 degrees C. The most important international talks in the history of humankind will take place at the UN Climate Change negotiations in Copenhagen this December. They must deliver a fair global deal to keep us safe from dangerous and irreversible climate chaos.
