COP26 in Glasgow this autumn is the last chance for action.
What is COP? Governments from around the world met for the first ‘COP’ in 1995. Since then, there have been 25 meetings which have all failed to prevent us heading for climate catastrophe. Carbon emissions have continued to rise… by over 50% since 1990!
Targets but no Action
The UK government are failing on their own target of net zero by 2050. A target utterly inadequate to make a meaningful difference to the crisis we are facing.
This is when we’re told something is happening, or the figures are misleading. The UK emissions may have gone down, but without including aviation, shipping and all the goods and food we buy from overseas – this is greenwash!
It could be so different!
Will our leaders come up with a real plan?
If governments were serious there would be a wartime-style mobilisation of resources.
There are many solutions for a green and fair future for all of us. With secure jobs, warm homes, clean air, healthy food and space for nature & wildlife.

Photos today from our action on Clumber Street on Sat 9th Oct. The sombre messages seem to have an impact on people passing by and really helps provoke thought and allow us to start some conversations about the climate and ecological crisis and talk about COP26.
