e-action: Help the WWF pressure for a strong climate bill.

Ask your MP for a Climate Change Bill that works

There are a number of things the Bill must do for it to be effective and perhaps the most important is the UK's overall CO2 emissions reduction target.

The government thinks a 60% reduction by 2050 is a reasonable target, but this is based on old science. The current science tells us that countries like the UK need to cut emissions by at least 80% to deliver our fair share of the carbon clear-up. And WWF research shows that an 80% reduction by 2050 is entirely achievable.

The difference between a 60% and an 80% target is the difference between a Bill which rises to the climate change challenge, and one which simply ducks it. Only with an 80% emissions reduction target can we hope to prevent the worst effects of climate change.

Tell your MP that the Climate Change Bill must be strong enough to be effective.

One of my favourite pastimes at lunchtime at work is browsing the various blog sites. I have found numerous well written articles of interest.
Today I was searching wordpress for ''environment'' and came across this site

Shocked Evil or Very Mad

My first reaction was shock, disbelief and anger. How can so called religious people not care about the environment and then have the audacity to use God in their justification of their beliefs.

These people need locking away.
