Register for the 'Recharge the Media' action


As a member of the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition, Ethical Consumer is asking its supporters to get involved in the following activities.


Energy Campaign Actions

SCC is hoping to get 100,000 messages to the government through people encouraging their MPs to write to the Prime Minister calling for a strong renewables strategy by Spring 2009 and for both the Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Energy and Climate to say no to unabated Coal and E.ON's proposed new coal fired power station at Kingsnorth.

Go to the action section of the Stop Climate Chaos website to register and take part in these email actions.


Recharge The Media Initiative

Do you feel the media sometimes misses the point? Wish it was getting the urgency of climate change?

If, like us, you think the media could use some ‘recharging’ on the climate debate, join in to create a big debate in the media this December. Get the letters pages, opinion columns and airwaves buzzing with your views on climate change and the UK’s energy choices.

Get your voice heard. Inspire others. Help shape the public agenda.

Tell the media you care what this country is doing to tackle climate change at home. Call on our politicians to kick start the carbon clean up at home and show leadership on the world stage.

Speak up! Register NOW for the Stop Climate Chaos Recharge the Media action.


How does it work?

Sign up here to ‘Recharge the media’. Stop Climate Chaos will get in touch with you once a week in the run-up to 1 December, with tips on getting your voice heard in the media.

Then every day from 1-7 December, Stop Climate Chaos will tell you how climate change is being covered in the media throughout the week and where you can influence the debate in newspapers, online, on the radio and in your local news. 

You then take as many or as few actions as you want.

At the end of the week, that’s it for this Stop Climate Chaos Coalition action – you won’t receive any more alerts BUT you’ll have helped create a climate buzz and hopefully be energised to keep ‘recharging’ the public debate wherever you can.
