Paul Allen shared CAT’s Zero Carbon Britain solutions with the many hundreds of deeply committed climate active citizens who braved the rain on Saturday the 1st of December to march together on Downing Street.
In the Welsh seaside town of Aberystwyth, an innovative environmental group has been formed to tackle food waste. CAT graduate Chris Woodfield introduces Aber Food Surplus.

Adrian Ramsay, Chief Executive of the Centre for Alternative Technology, has informed the Charity’s Board of Trustees that he will be stepping down from his role in late January 2019. He will be moving to a new senior leadership role in the environmental sector based in his home county of Norfolk.
Fighting climate change isn’t an unresolved technical challenge, we have all the tools and technologies we need. Paul Allen, project coordinator for Zero Carbon Britain asks you to join us on the 1st of December at the UK Climate March in London and to make sure that your voice is heard. Paul Allen will be attending as a speaker focusing on what the solutions to our current predicament are.
Responding to today’s budget announcement, CAT CEO Adrian Ramsay said:
“The government is fiddling while the planet burns. Released just weeks after the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a stark warning on the impacts of rising global temperatures, there was woefully little in this budget to address the climate crisis.”
Cross-party consensus on ambitious targets, and a clear roadmap for effective climate action is urgently needed. That’s the message Paul Allen has been taking to politicians from across the political spectrum, most recently at a meeting with Energy Minister, Claire Perry.
CAT hosted a visit from UK Government Minister for Wales Lord Nick Bourne today – giving us the opportunity to press for ambitious action on climate change and discuss CAT’s role in promoting practical solutions.
If the UK Government wants to create a truly ‘Green GB’, they should start by committing to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040.
As major UK political parties sign up to the net-zero target demanded by the latest climate science, CAT calls for a cross-party consensus around a delivery plan by 2040, to ensure the UK gains full benefits from playing its part in a just transition. Paul Allen reports.
