Turning up the heat on climate change: time to write to our MP

7 December 2018

The climate crisis needs an immediate and radical response from all governments, including our own. Let's start the new year by each writing to our MP, Mel Stride, mel.stride.mp@parliament.uk insisting on action now.

The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) reports that in order to limit warming to 1.5 degrees, human caused net CO2 emissions must be reduced by 45% from 2010 levels, by 2030. This needs to be followed by net zero emissions globally by 2050 (i.e. any emissions are balanced by other actions which draw carbon from the air).

Let's insist that our MP takes this matter seriously and that the government puts into action a credible plan to achieve the 45% reduction in emissions as set out by the IPCC.
