2. News: The Stop Climate Chaos Coalition has handed in 85,450 messages to
Ed Miliband to quit dirty coal and say yes to clean, green renewable energy.
Thanking the coalition, Mr. Miliband assured SCC that the Government is
doing the best that it can. We reminded him that the 85,450 messages are to
support the government to make good on its promise to reduce carbon
emissions by 80 by 2050 by rejecting dirty new coal and embracing a
renewable energy future. A big well done everyone - and let's keep going to
March in December

4. Direct Action: A message from Climate Rush: BEGIN THE SUMMER OF PROTEST
IN STYLE!

On Monday 1st June the UK Parliament returns from recess for the summer
sitting. Climate Rush want to give them a warm welcome and remind them of
the heat they can expect if they continue to ignore climate change. Ed
Miliband (Secretary of State Energy and Climate Change) is in Bonn that
evening, discussing with other 'world leaders' the agenda for the UN Climate
Summit in Copenhagen. Let's give our 'leaders' a taste of the civil
disobedience they can expect if real climate justice fails to materialise.
It is also the first evening of a coal conference at the illustrious
'Chatham House'. Everyone who's anyone, at least in the coal world, will be
there.

We'll begin our bike-ride outside their conference before winding our way
through town. Meet us from 5pm on St James Square, SW1Y 4LE. We'll then move
off at 6pm and take our bikes for a relaxed tour through London. Labour
might think that investing in electric cars is the solution to climate
change but we know that cars using electricity from coal-fired power
stations is yet another red-herring.

Have you ever needed more reason to leave the house, embrace the sunshine
and join the pedal-powered as they move about town? Come along and make your
impact felt.
