Campaign Against Climate Change (Scotland)

Campaign Against Climate Change (Scotland)

Thanks to everybody who came to our airport expansion protest in Aberdeen - including all the drummers! We spent two hours in the city centre, with an information stall, leaflets, postcards to the Scottish Minister of Transport, climate disaster pictures, placards, a large banner, and enough coal to demonstrate the amount of carbon emitted by one passenger on a return flight Aberdeen to London. The drummers were great and got lots of people to our stall.

We naively thought we could get enough coal to represent a return flight to Florida...not realising that's so much we would have needed to hire a truck! The London flight took 80kgs - and that's just the carbon, never mind the additional greenhouse warming effect!

And now back to getting all those letters sent... (see post below)!
