Climate change affects our health, our homes, our heritage and our beautiful landscapes. It ruins the work we do to fight poverty and lead better lives.
We know that to avoid the worst effects of climate change, we must limit global temperature rise to 1.5C. Going above 1.5C warming could multiply hunger, migration and conflict.
To stand the best chance of avoiding this, we need the UK to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to ‘net zero’ by 2045. This will mean Britain no longer contributes to climate change.
Things are urgent – take action and sign the petition today.
I am proud of the UK’s commitment made as part of the Paris Agreement to endeavour to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C. This will limit the worst effects of climate change on our health, homes and communities and people living in poverty around the world.
Please support a by-2045 net zero greenhouse gas emissions reduction target, and enshrine this in law within the lifetime of this Parliament.
