Trafalgar Square at evening. Author: Andreas Tille

Introduction Edit

This is a coalition of UK organisations that between them have millions of supporters, founded in September 2005 to present a united voice demanding action on climate change.

The main focus of Stop Climate Chaos is lobbying the Government to slash the UK's global warming gas emissions and make fighting climate change a key part of its plans to deal with global poverty, but it is also encouraging individuals and organisations to commit to reducing their own greenhouse gas emissions.

Diary UK Edit

The Stop Climate Chaos coalition are to stage ‘i count’, a huge event in London’s Trafalgar Square, on Saturday 4th November, 2006 at 1pm.

Stop Climate Chaos is calling on the government for: Edit

  • Action in the UK: Establish a Carbon Budget that cuts emissions by 3 per cent year on year which covers all sectors of the economy, and uses all the tax, incentive and regulatory tools at its disposal to ensure the target is met.
  • Action internationally: Make it a top priority to ensure that global greenhouse gas emissions are irreversibly declining by 2015.
  • Action for justice: Provide all necessary assistance to developing countries to both adapt to climate change and in the longer term get access to sufficient clean energy to meet their developmental needs.

The Coalition Edit

The growing coalition contains most of the UK's leading environmental and international development organisations as well as women's organisations, activist groups and faith-based campaigns:

Random facts Edit

  • Nearly 90% of the UK population claim to take small steps themselves to reduce their own carbon emissions, whilst only 4% of the population think UK Prime Minister Tony Blair has made effective progress on the issue whilst in office. Two thirds of the population are concerned about climate change, and over 40% claim climate change policies would influence their vote.
