  1. A call for a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing in the UK

    'The oil and gas industry is seeking to exploit UK onshore gas reserves trapped in shale rock and coal beds requiring environmentally damaging and risky techniques, including hydraulic fracturing (fracking). We, the signatories of this petition, call on the coalition government in Westminster, the Welsh Assembly Government and the Scottish Parliament to impose a moratorium, demanded by environmental groups and geology experts in the field, on shale gas, and on the related coal bed methane extraction industry, at least until the results of studies here, in other countries in Europe and in the US have been properly evaluated. Such moratoria…

    • HS2 - High Speed Rail Link. We dont need to spend £160m per mile

      Costing over £160m per mile, the proposed HS2 High Speed Rail Link will not only help further bankrupt our country but will slash and scar our countryside, leaving a permanent reminder to our children of politics gone mad and a dynasty of greed of gargantuan proportions.

      • Ban the use of snares in England

        I work in a wildlife hospital & we deal with wild animals with horrific injuries after being caught in snares. We have many photos to prove the damage done by these inhumane cheese-wires. Domestic pets have also been severely injured by snares.
        A ban on their use is long overdue.

        • Access rights in England

          Rights to access the English countryside, including waterways, should more closely resemble those of Scotland. The land should be free for all to enjoy and use responsibly, it works in Scotland, it can work min England too.

            • Encourage REUSE via Freegle. Don't Throw it Away! Give it Away!

              Freegle is an online network of 1.1million people giving away their unwanted goods to people in their local area who can make use of that stuff. Keeps usable items from going to landfill. Lowers pointless consumerism. Builds community spirit. Everything given away or received via Freegle is FREE. There are 280 Freegle groups across the UK run by local volunteers. Freegling encourages waste reduction; benefits time and money poor individuals, organisations and businesses; lowers local authorities expenditure and helps save the planet all at the same time :-)

                • Put power lines underground

                  Vast swathes of the British countryside are set to be blighted by hundred's of super-pylons needed to carry electricity from offshore windfarms to the National Grid.

                  Cherished views of outstanding national beauty from the Lake District to Snowdonia to Suffolk and Somerset will be scarred by National Grid's intention to build nearly 1000 of the 160ft pylons.

                  Pylons are technology that dates from the 1960's and should be obsolete like typewriters. The UK is changing to renewable electricity generation but has no plans to change transmission technology. This is madness. All new power lines should go underground. The extra cost…

                  • Save Our Badgers!

                    The coalition's trial culls have been given the go-ahead, in the face of scientific evidence and public opinion.

                    Bovine TB is a terrible disease, but badgers are more likely to be its victims rather than its cause.

                    The Coalition's plans allow for "free shooting" of badgers, will result in 70% of badgers in a 150 sq km area being killed, will damage local ecosystems and - given those numbers - possibly make badgers extinct in these areas.

                    Even if the cull is "successful" it will only result in between a 12 and 16% reduction in Bovine TB (average scientific figures)…

                      Government seriously considering u-turn on wind; wind companies' investment on hold due to uncertainty; well-funded anti-campaigns. Is the viability of life on earth more important than a view?

                      • 'New nuclear' energy: the great green rip-off

                        The government has told us that we need more nuclear power stations to combat climate change. Nothing could be further from the truth.

                        Nuclear power is incredibly expensive and incredibly dangerous. The New Economics Foundation estimates that to pay for building new reactors and processing their waste, nuclear power providers could increase our electricity bills by almost three times the industry estimate. So that's a hike from £45 a quarter to around £100.

                        Opting for ten new nuclear power plants is a quick fix solution that will leave us with a terrible legacy of cancer-causing radioactive waste that nobody knows…

                            Wind "farm" technology is flawed and has been disproven. It's "popular" because the huge corporations make vast profits from the subsidies available.
                            If no other fact persuades you, our coldest spells of weather coincide with no or little wind and thus windfarms are redundant at times of peak demand - as happened in December.

                              A government adviser reviewing the school National Curriculum is recommending that Climate Change be excluded from the science curriculum. Unless the public succeed in persuading the government of the crucial importance of climate education, it will be dropped from the curriculum from 2013, when the new National Curriculum comes into being.

                                  Councils in the UK own million of acres of land. Led by Somerset County Council, many are now considering privatising their public land and forests in a move which could dwarf the Government's attempted sell-off of the forests earlier in 2011. Somerset County Council has begun consulting on the sale of 2,000 acres of land in the Quantock Hills (the UK's first AONB), much of it Sites of Special Scientific Interest and forest. If Somerset County Council (SCC) is successful, other Councils are sure to follow. Help defeat SCC's privatisation plan and make sure that the forests sell-off doesn't happen…

                                    Ramsgate harbour has just opened up to exporting livestock to the continent for slaughter. This greatly enhances the misery these poor animals go through in their short lives. We should try to ban this practice and if animals have to be slaughtered, do it before it leaves this country.

                                    • Stop the govt's plans to adopt "fracking"

                                      The govt has granted licenses to drill using "fracking" and intends to issue more by the end of the year. There has been little, if any, unbiased information published on this, despite the many cases of long term damage to the environment and severe health problems in those areas in the US where fracking is used.In Blackpool, things are moving ahead quickly, yet the concerns of the local community are not being taken seriously. The government appears to be soldiering on, yet again, without properly exploring the issue or being open and transparent. I suspect they hope to implement the…

                                      • Forestry Commisson U-TURN - Delamere Forest once again under threat!

                                        Despite the House of Lords overturning the sell off of our beloved Delamere Forest - the Forestry Commisson has prompted a consultation within a window of 1 month to build 70 holiday homes across the Forest creating a devastating impact on the wild life, trees and habitat.

                                        PLEASE HELP US FIGHT THIS! Is there nowhere in the north west which is protected from development??!!

                                        This area is vital protecting what wildlife we have left, and now the FC (gov) want to strip a huge area, laying pipes and leading to the inevitable human contamination.

                                        • Save Barn Elms from Thames Waters Plans to construct the super sewers main drive shaft

                                          We are a coalition of residents, councils, MPs and GLA members joining forces to defend an unspoilt stretch of the River Thames riverbank from seven years of construction misery.

                                          Alistair McGowan, Peter Snow and Caroline Langrishe are among the high profile names backing the pressure group's campaign.

                                          We are opposed to Thames Water's plans to construct the main shaft of the proposed Thames Tunnel at Barn Elms.
                                          We believe there are alternative sites which offer less impact to our community, wildlife & quality of life for local residents!
                                          Thames Water wants to choose Barn Elms playing fields, between Putney &…
