Email Chris Huhne to call for an urgent global agreement on climate change

November 2011

The UN climate change talks will take place in Durban, South Africa from 29th November to 9th December 2011.

Time is running out for an ambitious global deal on climate change to be agreed, as the only agreement we currently have – the Kyoto Protocol – is due to end next year. We urgently need a follow-on agreement if we are to keep emissions under control and avoid the catastrophic effects of runaway global warming.

Email Chris Huhne MP, Energy & Climate Minister who will lead the UK delegation at the negotiations, to highlight the need a global deal on climate change to be agreed in Durban.

David Cameron: Take the Reins

It's time to take the reins on Climate Change!

In 2006, David Cameron visited the Arctic to see the effects of climate change first-hand.

In 2008 he helped secure the UK’s world-leading Climate Change Act.

In 2010 he pledged to lead the ‘greenest government ever’.

But this year, he went quiet – while others in his party have undermined his green promises.

Connecting with Climate Action in Qatar

Final day at the Doha climate talks UNFCCC flickr

The Doha Climate talks drew to a close on Saturday 8th December, a day later than planned.

Unfortunately the extra day didn't reflect an increase in ambition and the talks were widely greeted with disappointment that no progress was seen on increasing cuts to carbon emissions or providing the climate finance that poor countries need to adapt to climate change.

Green is Working for you!

During the Autumn of 2012, we asked you to send us photos explaining why Green is Working for you. We got tons of inspiring photos, and on 3rd December we handed a selection of them to #10 Downing Street so that David Cameron could see your messages.

Check out the photos below, and get inspired!

Ask David Cameron to support stronger climate targets!

David Cameron will be giving his first speech on the environment since taking office next Thursday 26th April.

Together we can convince our Prime Minister to stand strong, and back targets to reduce EU emissions by 30% by 2020 in this key climate speech.

A stronger EU climate target will be crucial for increasing ambition at the next UN climate talks, but the preparatory work needs to be done now. And we need David Cameron to show his public support for a stronger EU target.

Can you take 2 minutes to email David Cameron to ask him to stand strong on emissions targets?

Help keep tar sands out of Europe

Tar sands produce 3-5 times the carbon emissions associated with crude oil production, bad news for a low carbon economy.

Yet the UK Government, under pressure from Canada which produces most of the world’s tar sands, is refusing to support an EU proposal that would effectively ban tar sands from European import.

We still have a chance to reverse our government’s position before the vote on 23 February.

Tell Norman Baker and Nick Clegg there is no place for dirty oil in a green European Union!
