Welcome to our website!
We have a crazy situation. 97% of climate scientists are convinced that the worldis warming due to human activity and we have just had the third record-breaking year on a row.
And yet President Trump is installing climate deniers into all the key positions where they can damage our planet irretrievably. We HAVE to challenge this.
Now is the time to join PCAN! Get involved, write letters to local politicians and MPs or join us on marches around the UK! Check out our promotional video below.
PCAN aims to increase awareness of climate change
We work with other groups to do so.
We’re also part of the Climate Coalition which represents over 100 different organisations campaigning on climate change.
The Climate Coalition is suggesting we all wear green hearts on Valentine's day to show the love we have for landscapes and animals we care about. Despite the scale of the problem, climate change isn’t talked about much and the idea of the green hearts is to change this and to start climate conversations. It’s an easy idea to build on because you could make green hearts from card and hang up messages. You could make them from felt, wool, playdough. You could bake heart shaped biscuits and ice them green. You could frame pictures of places and animals you love and display them or share them on social media, using the hashtag #showthelove
Despite Trump and his cronies who have huge investments in fossil fuels, climate change is real and it’s already happening. 2016 was the hottest year on record, just as 2015 and 2014 were.
It’s a real threat to life on earth and not just human life of course. Many species have evolved over millennia to survive in particular conditions and even small changes can make that impossible.
The same applies to crops. Many like coffee are very susceptible to changes in temperature and rainfall and it may be that world production will be seriously hit.
It’s urgent that we take action. There’s still a (remote) chance that we can limit temperature rises to 2 degrees or maybe less, but we need action now.
There’s very little debate about the causes now and it's down to fossil fuels which are also causing pollution and breathing problems.
However there's plenty of uncertainty about how bad it’s likely to be. It could depend on tipping points like huge amounts of methane being released if frozen grounds melt.
Vested interests like the fossil fuel industry are still spreading disinformation and blocking action. Anbd of course with Trump they now have even more power. Melting ice could cause huge sea level rises and if we allow these to happen (and they are almost inevitable now) much of Britain’s coastline could disappear. This is a very serious scenario for cities like Portsmouth and London.
We believe that spending money now makes sense. Why wait for disasters in the future? We need to challenge the government on growth and austerity and show how climate jobs can be created. Campaign against Climate Change has plenty of good ideas.
Climate change is already affecting some of the poorest people around the world who have done the least to cause it. Floods, famines, extra-strong storms, droughts have all been attributed to climate change. We need to help these people adapt to a changing climate without forcing corporate solutions on them.
Changing your own lifestyle will make a difference. Cutting out flying and eating less meat for example will cut surprising amounts of greenhouse gases.
Join us and help make a difference.
It’s time to get involved and make a difference.
Wildlife in Danger
It's not only humans that have to deal with climate change, but the natural world too
