The 12 Days of Christmas

On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love sent to me:

Twelve tree-planters planting
Eleven windmills turning
Ten youths-a-marching
Nine climate dancers
Eight homes efficient
Seven salmon swimming
Six cyclists cycling

Five thick tree rings!

Four solar panels
Three electric cars
Two thermal vests, and

A world where the climate comes first

Merry Christmas, and best wishes for a happy and greener New Year!

When is “Net Zero” Not Really Net Zero?


“UK Government and Councils talk about net zero targets and actions to achieve this, and how we have already reduced our emissions by 44% since 1990.  But infact net zero targets and these metrics exclude consumption based emissions.   Those emissions from the UK are nearly 50% of the UK’s carbon emissions.  This can not be ignored.   So in principle targeting net-zero emissions in UK by 2050 is only around 50% towards zero.   We have to debunk this talk of net-zero.”

Climate Fair Photo Gallery. With Cake!

Our Climate Fair – brilliant food, stalls, conversations, ideas, information, talks, things to buy, things to do, cycles with a difference. And that birthday cake!

A sincere thank you to our army of cheerful helpers who fetched, carried, lifted, welcomed people, washed up, served food, made food, cleared up and generally made things happen.

And to all who came to enjoy the event.
