MSPs in the Scottish Parliament will vote on the new Climate Change law on Wednesday 25th September. That means we have just days left to improve Scotland’s climate targets.
The IPCC warned last year that we need “rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes” in the next decade to keep global warming to 1.5ºC. But, as it stands, Scotland’s draft law doesn’t do nearly enough to tackle the climate crisis over the crucial next decade.
We urgently need to raise our voices and demand our MSPs vote for rapid, radical action over the next decade in the new climate law.
Will you contact your MSP and ask them to increase the 2030 target from 70% to 86%?
MSPs get a lot of email and post, so why not try phoning their Parliament office?
Finally, in the run up to the final vote, the organization Friends of Earth Scotland will be outside the Scottish Parliament reading key sections of the IPCC Special Report on 1.5ºC and reminding politicians of the need to act on the climate emergency.
