The People’s March

HOT’s Zelly Restorick attended The People’s March in London on Sunday – and would like to share her photographic record of the event with you. An estimated 50,000 people marched, along with thousands of others around the world. Will our collective non-violent action make a difference to the outcomes of the Paris Climate Change talks? After decades of debate, will this be a turning point for humanity – and all the other residents of planet earth?

Gas and nuclear dominate Rudd’s energy vision

Energy minister and local MP Amber Rudd this month set the country’s course in energy policy for this government with her first major speech since taking office. While her plans to phase out coal were well received,  her policy of locking the UK into a deep reliance on oil, gas and nuclear while marginalising renewable energies represent a big step backwards. Nick Terdre takes a close look.
