Victoria Prentis MP, Please Support and Sign the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill
Support & Sign the Climate and Ecological Emergency (CEE) Private Members’ Bill:
● Ensure the UK reduces greenhouse gas emissions in line with our legal obligations to limit global heating to 1.5°C,
● Focus on nature as well as climate, protecting and conserving habitats in the UK and internationally,
● Hold a legally binding Citizens’ Assembly to help the UK Government and Parliament decide how to move forward in the transition to a zero-carbon society.
Why is this important?
The CEE Bill, drawn up in consultation with leading academics, scientists, and lawyers, presents clear proposals for addressing our entire carbon footprint, while actively conserving our natural landscape here and overseas.
As hosts of the COP26 international climate conference in 2021, the UK Government has pledged to provide climate leadership. Backing this vital Bill is a key step in that direction.
This bill will ensure that the UK restores and regenerates its habitats.
A low carbon future will build on the successes we have already achieved as a country, protect and uphold rural ways of life, and ensure that British agriculture is sustainable and prominent, which will lead us to a way of life based on sharing not selfishness.
We need to be less reliant on countries like China, and instead invest in growing industries like renewable energy, battery manufacturing, and electric cars. This would be a natural step to take to reduce our carbon footprint.
