14 October 2017 - Protect our Futures day of action

 

Donald, Jules, Sheila and Virginia took our stall to Ealing Broadway, and talked to the public about climate change, renewable energy and fracking. 

Donald produced an informative poster with details of various kinds of renewables and figures showing the contribution that they make to our energy supply. He even downloaded that morning’s data from a site, www.gridwatch.co.uk  which gives UK electricity National Grid demand and output per production type. People found both of these very interesting.

Our chat-up line that day was “If you had to, would you rather live near a wind farm or a fracking site?”
