Surfers-Against-Sewage

Surfers Against Sewage at The Climate Coalition at Westminster last week

Energy Live News reports the problems still being experienced by surfers on some UK beaches because of pollution.  Andy Cummins, Campaign Director for ‘Surfers Against Sewage’, an environmental charity protecting the UK’s oceans, waves and beaches, said,

We need the government to address the problem because surfers can be at risk from increased pollution incidents, heavy rain and more intense rainfall which can cause sewers to overflow.  I think decarbonising the economy would be a great step forward.  We’re looking at moving away from coal and embracing renewable energy would be a step that is sustainable for the future.”
