The Climate Coalition, with our sister organisations Stop Climate Chaos Cymru and Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, is the UK's largest group of people dedicated to action on climate change and limiting its impact on the world’s poorest communities. The combined supporter base of our 100+ member organisations is more than 15 million people across the UK.
We have come together to show our love for all the things we could lose to the impacts of climate change; and to ask politicians to put aside their differences, and commit publicly to do whatever is necessary to protect us and the things we love.
We want clean energy. Are you with us?
Our vision is a world with 100% clean energy within a generation.
This means ending carbon pollution from fossil fuels by the middle of the century, and building an energy system run by clean, renewable energy like solar, wind and wave power. To achieve this we will also need to reduce our demand for energy, by investing in warm homes and smart technology.
As a big and diverse coalition we have many different ways of tackling climate change, but renewable energy is our joint priority as it is a key focus for the majority of our membership.
We believe a world powered by 100% renewable energy is both possible and essential. Much of the technology to achieve this already exists, and the move to renewables is gathering pace all over the world.
How do we get there?
We want our politicians to work together across party lines to support the recent global climate change agreement and end carbon pollution from fossil fuels by the middle of the century – critical if we are to keep global temperature rises below 2 degrees.
We want to rebuild our economy on a more sustainable footing, creating many thousands of jobs in new industries, improving our quality of life and health, and safeguarding precious natural resources. Our politicians can help make this a reality by:
Ending climate pollution from coal use in the UK, on the way to phasing out carbon from our power system - in line with the recommendations of the Committee on Climate Change.
Making the investments in warm homes, sustainable transport, and clean energy needed to meet our obligations under the UK Climate Change Act.
This would only be the beginning. Protecting what we love will take commitment, vision and some tough decisions along the way.
