Scottish voters call for more action on climate change

 

As part of this week's #improverpp2 campaign on Twitter, Stop Climate Chaos has put together this short video featuring clips of people from across Scotland expressing their concerns about climate change. They call on the Scottish Government to improve its climate change action plan which will be published at the end of this month.

Encouraging plans on low carbon behaviour change need to be matched by Government policies

The Scottish Government needs to integrate its plans on how to achieve low carbon behaviour change with the climate change policies and proposals currently being scrutinised by Parliament, according to Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (SCCS).

Responding to the publication of the Government Low Carbon Behaviours Framework today, Tom Ballantine, Chair of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, said:

Beacons: stories for our not so distant future

Throughout history, writers have been spokespeople for social change, and with global warming a real threat to our planet, now is no different. With specially commissioned stories, many of the UK’s foremost writers address our most pertinent problem.

From Joanne Harris’ techno-dystopia, where parks and bees are no more, to the soldiers paroling the ravaged Welsh landscapes of Jem Poster’s ‘Visitation’, we’re shown our world, altered. Toby Litt uses the analogy of a knickerbocker glory to explain what we’re all about, and Nick Hayes tells the tale of a mysterious woodland hart through striking illustrations in his graphic story.

This is a stunning collection of writing that will shock, amaze and entertain in equal measure.  All royalties go to Stop Climate Chaos.
