To: Future MP for Chesham & Amersham
Prospective MP for Chesham & Amersham, PLEASE SUPPORT THE CLIMATE & ECOLOGICAL EMERGENCY BILL
Support and vote for the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill when it returns to the House of Commons.
Why is this important?
"We are at a unique stage in our history. The future of humanity and indeed, all life on earth, now depends on us" David Attenborough
We are facing an unprecedented climate crisis and the UK government simply isn’t doing enough. We know that we are in an emergency, the next 10 years are critical to keeping global temperatures at a safe level, and we want the government to take immediate and urgent action.
The CEE Bill has started on its path through parliament and was due to return for its second reading in March this year. It can help us change our course—making the government act with the urgency we need and involving everyday people in a Citizens’ Assembly that has real bite.
If the CEE Bill is made law, the government would have to act fast, accounting for our entire carbon footprint while actively conserving nature here and overseas. The bill could set a precedent that can be replicated across the world.
According to They Work for You, a website that documents MP voting records, our late local MP Cheryl Gillan “generally voted against measures to prevent climate change”. Please help to ensure our future MP supports the CEE Bill.
It is vital that local environmental groups and concerned citizens have the opportunity to convey to them the severity of the crisis we are facing so they can represent us in parliament. Encouraging them to support the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill would be a great start!
Signing this petition will let our prospective candidates know how concerned you, their constituents, are.
We need the support of as many MPs as possible so that this bill can move forward - politicians need to step up. Sign this petition to call on our MP to back the CEE Bill!
If you are not in Chesham & Amersham constituency, why not set up your own petition.
