Last week I joined a cross-party group of MPs to introduce the Green New Deal Bill in Parliament. Now we need you to help us build pressure for the bill to go through Parliament. Will you add your name as a supporter of the bill?
The Green New Deal Bill will:
Create legally binding targets to cut emissions, reduce inequality and reverse environmental damage.
Change the way the Government manages the economy to enable huge investment into jobs, green infrastructure, public services, and environmental protection.
Enable a comprehensive action plan to transform our energy supply, transport system, farming, buildings and the way we work so we can decarbonise quickly.
Block investment in the things we need to stop now – making fossil fuel extraction a thing of the past.
Ensure that transformation here doesn’t harm communities elsewhere, by making plans to pay reparations that simultaneously deliver climate and development goals.
