So the election has been called and we’d like you to make climate change a key election issue. Ask the Climate Question have got an action plan that makes it easy for you to find your local candidates and ask them a climate question. CAT has supporters, members and friends all over the country – and if we all get involved we can help make climate change a key election issue.
CAT will be asking climate questions to our local candidates (and in fact and election candidates we come across local or not) and we’d like you to do the same.
Here’s how to get involved and ask a climate question:
Go along to your nearest Climate Question time. Here’s a map of all the climate question time events happening across the country.
When the candidates knock on your door or stop you in the street make sure you ask them a climate question. How about:
- Will you commit to putting the UK on track to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020, through strong domestic action?
- Will you commit to ensuring at least 15% of all energy comes from renewables by 2020?
- Will you commit to providing the UK’s fair share of finance to the developing world in addition to existing commitments on overseas development aid?
… or make up something of your own.
