No New Coal!
Why target EON and Kingsnorth?
The proposed power station will emit between 6 and 8 million tons of CO2 every year, and is just the first in a plan to build up to seven new coal fired power stations. This will wreck the UK's chances of meeting its own target of an 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050.
Climate change isn't about warmer summers in Blighty. It's about serious changes that will cost millions of people (particularly those that are the worst off and living precariously) their livelihoods and lives. If we can stop E.ON, other companies will be discouraged from risking similar plans, and we will send the strong message that the energy crisis needs to be tackled positively, implementing the solutions that will get us off fossil fuels.
If you're in need of some motivation, watch this short animation 'Wake Up, Freak Out – then Get a Grip'. Very well made and stunningly lucid. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=5T_3WJPYY9g
Everyone welcome, spread the word! Bring banners, costumes, instruments and a sense of injustice; help us tell EON to f off!
