UK-wide climate emergency

by Ian Short

Caroline Lucas (MP for the Green Party) tabled a motion to the UK parliament on the 13 March to recognise that the world has a climate emergency. The motion proposes that the government introduces a new green deal to radically reduce the production of greenhouse gases. The motion is here –

UK-wide climate emergency.

It has been signed by politicians from across the political spectrum. You can

write to your MP

to encourage her or him to sign the motion. I wrote to Nadine Dorries; she has yet to sign up to it.
