Celebrate Solar - Don't Let The Government Wreck Renewables

Friday 4 September 2015 Campaigns News

The government has announced plans to scrap subsidies for renewable energy - further pushing us into the mess of fossil fuels and climate breakdown. Don't let them do it.

Renewable energy has been doing really well in recent years, but the government has just announced plans to wreck all that.

They're cutting all the subsidies, and making loads of renewables projects impossible

At the same time, they're pushing fracking on us - even though public opposition has never been higher - locking us into fossil fuel infrastructure for years to come.

We need to keep 80 per cent of fossil fuels in the ground and transition to 100 per cent clean energy by 2050 to avoid the worst effects of climate change. What the government is doing is basically the opposite. 

Sign the petition to tell the government not to wreck renewables, and enjoy our lovingly curated playlist of songs celebrating the incredible power of solar. 

Here's hoping for a massive solar spill this weekend. Enjoy yourselves.
