At 5.00am on Thursday 17th November, Cicely Spelling of 10:10 picked up 1000 pinwheels and headed to Parliament Square. As the sun dawned, she joined 25 bright-eyed and bushy-tailed volunteers and planted the pinwheels on the grassy lawn.
The pinwheels represent the lost turbines that can’t be built because of the withdrawal of government support for onshore wind.

The divisions caused by the EU referendum make it more important than ever for us all to unite behind our shared environment. 

Just 3 short years ago, Louise Hazan was one of a handful of organisers preparing to board a tour-bus to launch the Fossil Free Europe campaign in the UK, Netherlands and Germany. They had one simple message: if it’s wrong to wreck the climate, it’s wrong to profit from that wreckage.

Over 80,000 people right across Europe have joined this movement to divest our public institutions from fossil fuels, by signing petitions, lobbying decision-makers and taking creative actions onto the streets.

Friends of the Earth petition to ditch diesel.

Last week, 10:10 kicked off its Blown Away campaign with a petition demanding that fossil fuels are not given more financial support than clean, renewable onshore wind.

Together Greenpeace and its supporters are going to take the government to court.  Are you in?

Greenpeace reports that this has been the hottest year in 115,000 years; Arctic ice levels are near rock bottom; yet Theresa May just approved a runway at Heathrow which could fuel even more climate change. "It’s beyond a joke".

George Monbiot reports in the Guardian (19 Oct 2016) that "you cannot build new runways and prevent climate breakdown".

The prime minister cannot uphold the Paris agreement on climate change, that comes into force next month, and permit the runway to be built. While most sectors can replace fossil fuels with other sources, this is not the case for aviation. reports that the think-tank Oil Change International have recalculated the mathematics of climate change. The basic gist is this: oil and gas fields and coal mines already in production contain enough carbon to carry us past the two degree mark.

Gayzer Frackman, from Fylde in Lancashire, plans to challenge the Government's upcoming decision re allowing fracking in Blackpool, on climate change and human rights grounds.

The case, if successful, will stop fracking in Blackpool and help to stop fracking elsewhere in the UK.
