The Climate Change Act was ground-breaking when it became law over 10 years ago, but it’s nowhere near ambitious enough for the scale of the crisis we face today.
The Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill, tabled today in Parliament with my wholehearted support, would correct the separation of nature and climate in policy, close loopholes used by the govt to justify their net zero target of 2050 and bring urgent action on the climate and ecological crisis into law.
We cannot afford another decade of inaction. The climate emergency needs an emergency response and any government that cared about the future of humanity, and the rest of life on Earth, would adopt the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill.
Along with the Green New Deal bill I have already tabled with Caroline Lucas, we intend on making sure climate breakdown is front and centre of parliamentary business in the coming months.
