Our children demand nothing less than an Energy [R]evolution to ensure a sustainable future for them


Mae Moh coal plant Lampang province

Dear Greenpeace activist,

On 29th September 2008, Senators in the Philippines finally passed the Renewable Energy bill, paving the way for enactment of a law that will allow massive uptake of renewable energy, such as wind and solar power, to ensure energy security and to combat climate change.

How we achieved it Greenpeace ran a two-year sustained campaign to call for an Energy [R]evolution in the Philippines. This would have been impossible without support from thousands of ordinary citizens and supporters just like you. It shows how persistence and commitment to our dream of a better planet for our children can eventually yield results and sooner rather than later! Now it is Thailand's turn The Philippines has shown the way, now let's not allow Thailand to fall behind. We need to quit coal - the worst climate offender -- and deploy clean renewable energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from our energy sector. Let's take action now Let's join together and demand the new Energy Minister of Thailand, Mr. Wannarat Charnnukul, heeds the demands of thousands of Thai citizens and Greenpeace supporters and takes immediate action to put in place legislation for uptake of renewable energy and energy efficiency measures. Sign the petition. If you have then, forward this email to your friends.

Together we can do it.
