There's nothing for you here.

Greenpeace think that energy policy the world over should be localised and democratised. Not only is it more efficient to generate power near where it’s going to be used, but giving communities some control over their power supply has numerous other advantages, many of which are being smugly illustrated on a daily basis by Germany.

Canvass your MP

A brand new campaign has been launched in which you can Canvass your MP to bring in tougher targets on cutting CO2 emissions. This website was created within a week thanks to climate campaigners working round the clock to make it available to you to take action. The climate change bill proposed by the government promises emissions cuts of just 60 per cent. However, a much higher figure of at least 80 per cent is required for realistically tackling climate change.
