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.
Responding the news today that the 2011 emission target was missed, Dr Sam Gardner of coalition Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (SCCS) said:
Letter in the Scotsman
Horse meat in kids’ school meals and multinationals’ tax dodging are two recent scandals to have captured the public’s imagination, and are arguably more likely to grab readers’ attention than the subject at the heart of this letter: the Scottish Procurement Reform Bill.
Open letter to Scottish Transport Minister:
Keith Brown MSP
Minister for Transport and Veterans
St Andrew's House
Meeting 2020 goals reliant on EU moving to 30% target
Scotland's largest civil society coalitions in joint call for fair and sustainable procurement
Alasdair Gray and other leading authors present vision of world affected by climate change
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:
In an unprecedented move, six Scottish Government Ministers  have been called to Parliament to explain their plans to reduce Scotland’s emissions - plans which the diverse Stop Climate Chaos coalition has branded ‘not credible’.
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.
