Coal mining has got to be stopped. The carbon emissions from this proposal would be large enough to scupper aims for Cumbria to become carbon neutral by 2030 as part of a hoped-for declaration of a Climate Emergency by Cumbria County Council, and even to meet current climate commitments. They would also equate to thousands of climate deaths [according to calculations by Laurie Michaelis]. Please therefore don’t lose interest: this could be the most important influence we can have regarding climate change in Cumbria for many years.
Thanks to Ian Rodham, our co-ordinator for the Pollination Project and to the Schools and groups who are engaging again this year with the plots on Kendal’s old canal towpath.
Exciting times and much change to come as Slacc tt joins forces with The People’s Cafe and Zero Waste Kendal.
