This is good news: With climate change impacts already being felt around the world by wildlife and the world’s poorest communities, we need to do all we can to fight it.

The Scottish Parliament's Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee is conducting an inquiry into the Scottish Government's renewable energy targets.
You can read the Stop Climate Chaos Scotland submission to the inquiry online here here.
Tar sands produce 3-5 times the carbon emissions associated with crude oil production, bad news for a low carbon economy.
Yet the UK Government, under pressure from Canada which produces most of the world’s tar sands, is refusing to support an EU proposal that would effectively ban tar sands from European import.
We still have a chance to reverse our government’s position before the vote on 23 February.
Tell Norman Baker and Nick Clegg there is no place for dirty oil in a green European Union!
