Why we got together to Reclaim the Power
While Britain is submerged in the worst floods for decades, the government and oil industry are pressing ahead with plans that could see see two thirds of the UK covered by fracking rigs, causing more carbon emissions and causing even more destructive weather patterns. Fracking is part of the wider Dash for Gas which includes the construction of up to 40 new Gas fired power stations. This agenda will crash our climate targets, increase fuel poverty and keep our future energy dangerously concentrated in the hands of unaccountable corporations.
Climate crisisThe UK is one of the dirtiest countries on the planet – we need to reduce our carbon emissions by 90% in 20 years if we are to stop climate change.
Economic crisisSince 2007, our economic system has lurched from recession, to depression to slump, countries have imploded, people are starving while the 1 per cent gets even richer.
Social crisisSavage cuts to our welfare system, fuel poverty and a lack of decent jobs are tearing apart our social fabric.
Why we must stop the dash for gas
The Government has announced plans to approve the building of 30 new gas-fired power stations. Despite overwhelming evidence that we’re rapidly heading towards catastrophic climate change, these plans rip up the Government’s own legally binding commitments to reduce carbon emissions; they will actually make us even more dependent on fossil fuels in 2030 than we are now.
