Dear Bernard Jenkin,
I’m writing as your constituent to urge you to support the climate and ecological emergency (CEE) bill (https://www.ceebill.uk/).
The Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill calls for: · the UK to make and enact a serious plan dealing with emissions to limit global rises in temperature; · the UK’s genuine carbon footprint to be taken into account; · the protection and conservation of nature here and overseas along supply chains, recognising the damage we cause through the goods we consume; · no reliance on unproven or non-existent technology as an excuse for inaction; · policy to be guided by a citizens’ assembly with bite.
With attention naturally focused on the Covid 19 pandemic for the last six months, there is a risk that we lose sight of the even greater twin threats posed by climate change and biodiversity loss. Scientific authorities have told us loud and clear that time is running out to tackle these threats. This bill would represent the most important step in doing so since the Climate Change Act 2008.
Please do what you can to support this bill.
