You may have heard on the news that the Government has taken the
unusual step of putting this bill to the House of Lords BEFORE it
is debated by the House of Parliament. Friends of the Earth are
asking us to write to local lords in our area in the next two weeks
to persuade them of the vital nature of passing the bill. Whatever
its limitations it is the first bill of its kind in the world
and means that the UK are taking a lead on tackling climate change.
You can find out how to locate a lord near us and what to write by
visiting the link above.
Incidentally Charles Mossman who alerted us to the above has
also discoverd that, in the Govts final report on the climate
change bill, CCA gets a big mention on Page 123 - so our actions do
make a difference nationally!!
