Declare a Climate Emergency

Parliament

Climate-emergency

We have until 2030 to take positive action which limits climate catastrophe.

That’s why more and more communities across the country are pushing councils to declare a climate emergency and go carbon neutral by 2030.

It’s time for Parliament to do the same. It’s time to declare a climate emergency.

From: [Your Name]

We have until 2030 to take positive action which limits climate catastrophe. I call on Parliament to declare a climate emergency immediately.

This should include:

• A Green New Deal for the UK, creating hundreds of thousands of jobs in a low-carbon economy.
• Establishment of a Select Committee on climate breakdown, and ensuring all new laws are climate-proofed.
• Providing funding to local authorities who have committed to going carbon neutral by 2030, allowing them to work towards this ambition.

This is an emergency. Let’s treat it like one.
