Why it's urgent

1.5°C

is the long-term limit for global temperature rise . Above 1.5°C the impacts would be catastrophic – more than humanity and nature can cope with.

80%

of fossil fuels must stay in the ground . But the UK government continues to support the fossil fuel industry. We need to pile on the pressure to meet our Paris climate agreement targets.

$263bn

were invested in renewable energy globally in 2016 . Costs are falling at lightning pace. We can power the world with safe and affordable clean energy – we don’t need fracking.

Why support Friends of the Earth?

Climate Change Act

Friends of the Earth and our supporters were the driving force in persuading the UK government to adopt the world's first climate change law. Other countries have followed our example.

Campaigning against fossil fuels

We support people like Barbara across the country, with resources and legal advice to resist fracking. Fossil fuels cause climate change — we need to leave them in the ground.

Renewable energy

This is crucial for limiting climate change. Friends of the Earth has a great track record on renewables: thanks to our campaigning there are hundreds of thousands of solar roofs in the UK.
