Petition: 'We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to stop promoting biofuels as an alternative to petroleum.'
- Say no to biofuel targets which encourage rainforest destruction.
The EU are now consulting on ‘sustainability standards’. We believe that what they propose will offer no protection to rainforests, the climate, nor people. If we want to save forests, prevent catastrophic global warming, and stop food prices rising beyond the reach of poor people, then we need to stop biofuels from large-scale monocultures.
- 90% for 90%
- is a call for a 90% cut in UK public transport fares, to make public transport affordable, to start making changes that bring the 90% cut in greenhouse gases needed to halt climate change. Carrying a '90% for 90%' card, those who support the call will ask public transport workers and other passengers to join in. Some 90% for 90%ers refuse to pay more than 10%; some show the card in support of the call; some leaflet other passengers.
