About us.....

Abingdon Carbon Cutters is a Community Action Group formed to help reduce the carbon footprint of Abingdon in response to climate change, and to promote a sustainable and resilient lifestyle for our town as fossil fuel stocks decline. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at St Ethelwold's House, which is here.

At some meetings, we have guest speakers to present various topics, and at others we discuss our own personal actions to address climate change. The group has a focus on encouragement, both of one another, and of the town community.

The effects of global warming - Oxfam campaign

Dear all,
A "carbon-cutter" has sent this - great to be able to help make the links between our actions here and the effects they will have on people in poor countries, unless we can really put a lid on climate change.
Do sign the petition!
I wondered whether you'd be able to help give a bit of publicity to the campaign that Oxfam's running on global warming and its impact particularly on the world's poor - it's their major campaign for this year.
In particular, Oxfam is trying to persuade the prime minister that he should attend the meeting in Copenhagen on 7th December.

There are campaign postcards available in Oxfam shops and there's also a petition on the Oxfam website at
