• Stop Tesco using Palm Oil in their own brands
    Palm Oil production is bad news in so many ways! It destroys wildlife by cutting down the Rainforest to plant palm oil plantations. Many iconic species such as the Orangutan are disappearing at an alarming rate. And that's not all.... it is contributing to increased poverty among local communities who work in the plantations for little return. Only making the big corporations bigger and more powerful at the expense of wildlife and the local population. But perhaps the biggest threat is deforestation - ''According to the World Wildlife Fund, an area the equivalent size of 300 football fields of rainforest is cleared each hour to make way for palm oil production''. This is all adding to the huge problem of Climate Change , due to the lack of trees to soak up the carbon and forest fires emitting huge amounts of carbon into the atmosphere. The world is getting warmer, the past four years we have had little or no snow in the winter. We all should be standing together globally to tackle this problem. Although it seems that we are powerless as a consumer , by signing this petition it will show big corporations like Tesco that consumers will not accept palm oil in its products. Tesco should step up its act and be an example to other big cooperation's in it's commitment to ending this madness of using pam oil in products. Please take a minute out of your life to sign my petition. Thank you so so much xxxx

  • Assist Japan In Solving the Fukushima Crisis
    The continuous spread of radiation from the destroyed nuclear plants at Fukushima will not only affect those who live locally, but also many countries with coastlines on the Pacific Ocean and to a lesser degree the whole world. Therefore it is not just in the interests of the Japanese Government and TEPCO to solve the crisis, but the whole international community. On March 11th 2011 a tsunami knocked out the generators of the cooling systems of the Daiichi Nuclear power plant, resulting in explosions and three meltdowns of the reactor cores. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fukushima_Daiichi_nuclear_disaster

  • NO FRACKING IN DERBYSHIRE
    Fracking has been proposed in the area of Eckington. The people of the area do not want fracking to occur due to the damages that are linked to it such as Sink Holes, pollution to the water table, heavy plant traffic on small B roads and the eye-sore that it will cause to the local area.

  • Say No to Wylfa B
    The nuclear option for electricity is dirty and dangerous. On Anglesey lets focus on renewable to generate more jobs and a sustainable future without the risk to the locality and the planet, with no radioactive waste. Talk to the people of Trawsfynydd, they thought it was safe now look at all the families devastated by cancer, a radioactive lake and an eyesore there for a thousand years.

  • Tell Teresa May to raise Climate change withTrump.
    In his first acts as president, Donald Trump has frozen funding for key environmental agencies, removed 'climate change' from whitehouse and epa websites and prevented the publishing of data. We call on the Prime Minister to be unequivocal in resisting climate change denial which is a danger to the u.k.

  • End Regional Pricing for Electricity
    As my MP (Ian Blackford) has said in Parliament, "This is not about price competition this is about a regulated charge varying from region to region through a price control framework. The reality is that you live in the Highlands and islands, you will pay for the privilege courtesy of doing so by the UK Government. Electricity distribution charges for the North of Scotland are 84% higher than the distribution charges for London. One nation? Whose nation. Not my one. Westminster calls the tune, Highlanders and Islanders pay the price. We pay a high price for transmission charges but we also have a high rate of energy consumption. The Highlands and Islands are noted for windy and wet conditions. It is not unusual for folk in the Highlands having their heating on all year round. Ofgem in a recent study on the matter noted thathouseholds in the North of Scotland, who use electricity for heating would benefit from a cost reduction of about £60 per year if there was a universal network charge. Sixty pounds to someone on a low income, to a pensioner would be a significant impact on their budget. Not only are we faced with high transmission charges but in the Highlands and Islands many consumers will suffer from a lack of choice in energy provision. Most households cannot benefit from a gas grid connection. It is often a choice between electricity and domestic heating oil. With such limitations the last thing we need is price discrimination being foisted upon us by a Westminster Government. Where you live should not result in you being penalised through paying higher network charges." Words are not enough. Now we need to see some action please on this!

  • Tidal power
    Tidal power is reliable, ecofriendly, and can supply a large proportion of our energy needs. We ask the UK government to prioritise this form of power generation as a matter of urgency. It makes engineering, economic and environmental sense. It is a no brainier.

  • Aberdeen City Council - Don’t make us fight to keep our only power supply
    Aberdeen City Council is trying to make us go through a costly and time consuming planning application to keep a small building that provides our only electricity supply, with no guarantee the application would be accepted. For eight years we fought several utility companies over their refusal to send accurate bills and attempts to trick us into paying money we didn’t owe. Eventually we were left with only one option to avoid being cheated - go off-grid. We decided on solar PV as this is the most reliable and cost effective means of generating off-grid electricity. But we didn’t have a South facing roof, so we built a small wooden building to house the solar panels. We spent several weeks building it with our own hands. Now the council want us to go through a lengthy and costly planning application just to keep this building. I live with my disabled mother. Living without power would deny her vital medical treatment (which she already has to pay for herself) as this has to be stored in a refrigerator. Her treatment has already been affected by having to build the building and off-grid system over the summer, and having to go through a lengthy bureaucratic process would undoubtedly affect it further. I earn a low income with a self employed electrical business that provides our only income. I could not do this without a power supply to charge my tools and run a laptop for my paperwork. I’ve also released a computer program that I hope to develop into a business. This would of course also be impossible without a power supply. I’m busy trying to earn a living for us and will struggle if I have to spend time dealing with a planning application. Living without power would be a nightmare in today’s world - hand washing clothes, no lights, no fridge, etc. We are socially isolated and depend on the internet as our only connection to the rest of humanity. Without a power supply this too would be lost. We don’t know who, if anyone made a complaint about our building, but we don’t believe it’s causing anyone a nuisance. It doesn’t block the light to, or view from, anyone’s windows. It replaced an old garden shed, on the same site, that was rotting away. In very adverse circumstances we are doing something positive for the planet - solar PV is zero emissions and totally sustainable. Don’t let Aberdeen City Council take that away. Please sign the petition. If you live outside the UK you can sign by emailing your name, any message you wish to be included with your signature, and stating that you are signing the petition "Aberdeen City Council - Don’t make us fight to keep our only power supply", to [email protected] . Thanks.

  • Restore democracy to Lancashire [Fracking]
    We citizens of Lancashire, put politicians in place to represent our needs. We are sovereign, and have the highest form of political authority--you are temporary. Our local council, made up of councillors democratically elected by us, and charged with serving our interests, is exactly the right body to make decisions on local matters. The government have displaced our democracy in Lancashire and we intend to make our vote count next time round. WE THE UNDERSIGNED: PLEDGE TO VOTE FOR NO CONSERVATIVE MP IN THE UPCOMING PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS
