In light of the United Nations Climate Change Conference taking place in Poznan, between 1st – 14th of December, Greenpeace have set up a “Climate Rescue Station” on the edge of a coal mine. The four storey tall station “will be used as a platform to tell the world that we can save the climate, but only if we quit coal, the most polluting of all fossil fuels”.
The Climate Rescue Station, which is powered by wind and solar energy, will have representatives from 15 different countries and is part of Greenpeace’s global Quit Coal campaign. The campaign is led by the flagship the Rainbow Warrior, who is currently urging governments and energy companies “to give coal the boot”.
During the climate talks in Poland the station will be moved to Poznan Wolności square. There it will continue to bash coal and put pressure on the delegates attending the climate talks to “get serious about climate change, quit coal and work towards a meaningful deal to save the climate”.
