On 4 July 2009, thousand of people from up and down the UK gathered at the site where energy company E.ON are pushing to build a new coal power station at Kingsnorth, Kent.

The crowds were there to send a message to Ed Miliband the government minister in charge of UK climate change policy that a clean, low-carbon future can be the only way forward. Ed Miliband has the power to choose to invest in low-carbon solutions instead, and lead the UK to a clean energy revolution.

If a new, dirty coal power station gets the go-ahead at Kingsnorth it will be the first built in the UK since the 1970s. It could emit as much as seven million tonnes of CO2 per year - that's more than the total emissions of the world's 30 poorest countries combined.
