Join us at the House of Commons this evening (15 January) for an all important public meeting on climate change.
Speakers will include Lewisham and Deptford MP Joan Ruddock, who in her role at as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at Defra is one of the key people behind the Climate Change Bill. Also speaking will be Friends of the Earth Senior Parliamentary Campaigner Martyn Williams.
Karen Buck, MP for Regents Park and Kensington, will chair the meeting, which is set to begin at 6.30pm.
It is crucial that the event is packed out in order to show continual support for the Top 3 Changes we are pushing to be made to the Bill.
The Top 3 Changes we want to see to the Climate Change Bill are:
1) Increase the carbon dioxide reduction target, from 60, to at least 80& by 2050.
2) Ensure that the UK’s share of emissions from international aviation and shipping are included in the reduction targets.
3) Set binding carbon budgets with annual milestones, to make sure that emissions reductions do not go off track.
No booking is required but please arrive at least 10 minutes early at the main entrance to Parliament in order to go through security.
Hopefully see you there…
