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.

2 talks, and some links.

Two short (and very relevant) talks to watch on your computer:

* David Mackay of "Sustainable ENergy without the Hot Air" fame: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRQB2YXUxvY
* Rob "Transition Town" Hopkins giving a TED lecture: http://www.ted.com/talks/rob_hopkins_transition_to_a_world_without_oil.html

And two recommendations if you want to put solar photovoltaics on your roof:

(Forwarded from a Carbon Cutter in Blewbury) :Dear all, An excellent website, giving a lot of details of all home microgeneration systems, seems to be:
http://www.yougen.co.uk It also lists installation firms, and allows readers to recommend them. regards, Eric Eisenhandler
Hi Sally, Just to let you know we have forged a close relationship with Chris Jardine and Jo Matthews of JO JU and I can highly recommend their services in conjunction with any type of PV installation. http://www.joju.co.uk/ (And don’t forget Heelas Heating is right here in Abingdon offering free site surveys/advice on solar thermal, boiler/heating upgrades and heating maintenance. Speak to you soon, Kind Regards, Dan Heelas http://www.heelasheating.co.uk/ )
