BREAKING 🚨🚨🚨| We’ve written to the government calling on them to unblock onshore wind and protect solar energy projects. Onshore wind and solar are clean, cheap, and popular. In the midst of an energy crisis, we need them now more than everwearepossible.org/latest-news/pg…mJq

Is it really worth trashing the planet for a discount on things you don’t need?
NEW | England’s environment watchdog has scaled back how it responds to reports of pollution in outdoor swimming spots, according to internal documents seen by Unearthed unearthed.greenpeace.org/2022/11/25/sew…

GOOD NEWS: The cost of producing energy from the sea's tides has fallen by 40% since 2018. Fossil fuels prices are soaring, but renewables keep on getting cheaper. Investing in renewables is a no brainer!

Poop water everywhere making people sick. Anyone think water companies need to get their sh*t together?
REMINDER: Solar farms are STILL banned from most of England's farmland. With energy bills at an all time high, why on earth are the government sabotaging cheap renewable energy?

The goods at SHEIN are mainly made of plastic. For example, in the case of clothing for women alone, 271,618 of 464,769 models are made of polyester.

SHEIN relies on so-called "dark patterns". This refers to methods such as hidden costs and advertisements, time-limited offers and much more, in order to persuade buyers to purchase the clothing.

Many tailors work 12-14 hours a day, 29 days a month. This is illegal.

SHEIN puts a seemingly incredible 6000 new designs online every day.

In 2021, Boohoo made £124 million in profit whilst some of the workers making their clothes in Leicester were paid less than £3.50ph. Fast fashion is ruthless exploitation of people and planet.
SHOCKING FACT: The home deliveries on Black Friday produce the same greenhouse gas emissions as 435 return flights from London to New York.
To turn this step forward into a victory, we need to make the historically most polluting countries and corporations pay the biggest contributions. And they must start NOW.
🚨 NEW: After intense negotiations at global climate talks, world leaders have agreed on a fund to deliver vital support to countries in the Global South who are being devastated by the climate crisis. This is an important first step towards climate justice.
Greenpeace disrupted the Central European Energy Conference demanding a real solution to the energy crisis! #EnergyCrisis, #CostOfLivingCrisis, #ClimateCrisis, #MakeFossilCriminalsPay. Security will come with energy efficiency and renewables. greenpeace.at/cee-press-hub/…

One thing most people don't get about the #WindfallTax is the loophole. The loophole means the government GIVES public money to oil companies to produce more oil. They are doing this at the same time as telling everyone else we're facing a TWO-YEAR recession. 😮 #Budget20222
We expected better from the government today. 🏠 7 million households will still be in fuel poverty this winter, rising to 8.6 million in April. 📢 Join us on December 3rd across the UK to make your voice heard. We all deserve to b#WarmThisWinterer!warmthiswinter.org.uk/day-of-actionTuh

Superyacht sales grew by 77% last year as the number of billionaires boomed. Superyachts produce 1500x more carbon emissions than the average family car. Anyone else sick of the super rich trashing our planet?

"Why should we pay the highest price?" - Molwyn Joseph (@AOSISChair) at COP27 Good question
FUN FACT: 77% of people surveyed would support the construction of a new wind farm in their area. In an energy crisis, why isn’t the government backing onshore wind? #Budget2022 #AutumnStatement

🚨BUDGET LATEST: Rishi’s Windfall Tax will STILL have a loophole so big you could drive an oil rig through it. Fossil Fuel companies can escape paying MOST of the tax if they drill for more oil. How does that help anyone? #Budget20222#AutumnStatementt#AutumnBudgett

SHOCKING FACT: Recent floods in Nigeria, Chad and Niger which forced 1.5 million people from their homes, were made 80x more likely by climate change, research has concluded. Why should countries who've contributed the LEAST to climate change be forced to suffer the MOST?
7 million households in fuel poverty up and down the country hoped for emergency measures to lower their spiraling energy bills. Instead of keeping people warm this winter, Chancellor @Jeremy_Hunt has given them the cold shoulder. #Budget2022 #AutumnStatement
Emergency action on insulation needed to be taken immediately. Instead, @jeremyhunt has offered to extend the meager support available now, in three years' time. Too many people are freezing NOW. #Budget2022 #AutumnStatement twitter.com/GreenpeaceUK/s…
🤔 A budget billed ‘a plan for growth’ that forecasts 2 years of recession 🤔 A windfall tax on huge fossil fuel profits that can mostly be AVOIDED by more fossil fuel drilling 🤔 Agrees insulation needs sorting, doesn't actually do anything new to fix it Anyone else confused?

🚨 BREAKING: A majority of Britons believe the UK has a RESPONSIBILITY to fund efforts to repair the damage caused by the climate crisis in poorer countries - new polling reveals. Climate funding for the Global South is COMMON SENSE. Why can't our politicians see that?
🚨 SHOCKING: A Pacific Island of 12,000 people has said it will digitally REPLICATE itself in virtual reality - as rising sea levels could soon WIPE the island off the map. It's wrong that countries who've contributed the least to the climate crisis are paying the highest cost.
Last night, the Prime Minister got a preview of our new film made in partnership with @NEF. The #CostOfLiving film premieres online on November 22nd. Free local screenings begin November 17th—find your nearest event👇act.gp/3tB26dRo
The London Assembly must push ahead with plans to expand ULEZ and make London cleaner. Let them know clean air is a human right 👇 @ShaunBaileyUKK@Councillorsuziee@PeterTFortunee@Len_Duvalll@LeonieCC@ellyannabb
In 2013, 9 year old Ella Kissi-Debrah tragically lost her life due to heavy air pollution aggravating her asthma. 4,000 people die from air pollution in London each year - yet some officials are fighting to scrap ULEZ. @SadiqKhan must follow along with plans to expand ULEZ.
Today, Jeremy Hunt will deliver the Autumn statement. A quick reminder that a plan without urgent investment in insulation during this parliament will be a failure.
🚨BREAKING: Rishi Sunak is failing to keep people warm this winter, so we brought our message directly to his mansion in Yorkshire.p

REVEALED: Over 4,000 people die from air pollution in London annually. Ultra low emission zones (ULEZ) reduce traffic and pollution in some of London’s busiest areas. Why are some politicians trying to get them scrapped?
