The Great Climate Swoop comes to Nottingham

11 Oct 2009 admin


Climate Camp is back – next weekend, hundreds of people will descend on E.ON’s coal power station near Nottingham and occupy it for the weekend.

Great Climate Swoop:

“Don’t be confused – 2009 is just another year of climate talks, in which governments and corporations will continue business as usual and tell us how a load of corrupt (but profitable) trading is in fact a real attempt to save the world.


To solve climate change we’re going to have to get together and make a real noise. CO2 levels are rising 20,000 times faster than at any point in life’s astonishing billion year history and coal is the biggest source of emissions. If we burn all the coal in the ground we’re toast. No butter, no jam, just toast. So stopping the burning of coal in the rapidly warming world is a good place to start.

That’s why on the 17th & 18th October 2009 we’re having a mega get together to close one of the UK’s biggest coal fired power stations, E.ON’s Ratcliffe-on-Soar in Nottingham.

Another end of the world is possible. Join us for the Swoop!”
