Climate Camp - Be Prepaired - 4-11th August

a vision of a sustainable world
rises up in a field. You pitch your
tent with thousands of others on
the doorstep of a climate criminal.
welcome to the climate camp

It’s an inspirational opportunity to take action and learn about everything from the disasters of biofuels to building a wind turbine. In the evenings you could be dancing or planning direct actions with new found friends.

What you will certainly feel is the excitement of being part of a growing movement tackling climate change and the absurd contradictions between endless economic growth and a sustainable just society. Last year two thousand people pitched up on the land earmarked for a third runway at Heathrow. The tide against the third runway has been rising ever since.

This year the Camp is at Kingsnorth power station in Kent, where the government and e-on think they are going to build the first coal-fired power station in thirty years. The Climate Camp has other ideas, like leaving fossil fuels in the ground for example!

Scottish Climate Activists may be organising transport down to the camp. Email scottishclimateactivists [at] to find out more info.

See you all there!

ps. If you're wondering where your next instalment of WBT? is, don't hold your breath. We've all been far too busy! Check for news. Hopefully we'll have an addition out in the future. WBT? is sleeping, it's not dead yet!

Due to the last edition taking longer than expected we skipped a month. Sorry. Heres the March edition. We'd also like to say a big hello to whoever it was from the Exxon Mobil Corporation, Irving, Texas who had a wee look at our website. Hope you had a good read.

To add to the online WBT? experience we've added a couple of new features. Now you can get the newsletter by email and we have discussion forums. How fancy is that?

WHO ARE YOU AND WHY ARE YOU MAKING ME READ THIS STUFF? I hear you ask. Firstly, welcome to the website of What Better Time? This monthly news sheet aims to inform people across Scotland and the world from a wide range of back-grounds about a fight to save the planet (yes, that old chestnut). As I am sure you are aware human induced climate change is imminent, and every person on the planet has to do something about it. The Scottish Climate Activist Network brings together activists and concerned individuals from across Scotland so we can support each other in our work to stop climate change through protest and direct action along with building sustainable alternatives.
