From Climate Act to Climate Action

Stop Climate Change Chaos Coalition are holding a mass lobby of the Scottish Parliament, 12.45-2.15pm, Thursday 25th October. This offers a vital opportunity to show MSPs (Members of the Scottish Parliament) that people in Scotland want to see real action on climate change. Perhaps ironically for a mass event, places are limited so book yours today!


Three years ago the Scottish Parliament unanimously passed the Scottish Climate Change Act 2009, the world’s strongest climate legislation. But legislation only works if backed up with action and unfortunately (and to some perhaps unsurprisingly), the Scottish Government failed to meet it’s first target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The lobby offers the chance for people to come together from across Scotland to show our politicians that we care about climate change and that the Government must deliver on the Scottish Climate Act. 


If you can't be there on the day, you can 'Get your Act Together' in the #gyat Twitter storm.  Simply tweet your messages between 12.45pm and 2.15pm on the day using the #gyat hashtag to show our politicians that we need them to do more on climate change.You can also use the hashtag in the run-up to the lobby to increase awareness of the event.


You can find out more on the Stop Climate Change Chaos Coalition website. Plus, EcoWarriorMe has written a detailed blog post on the event and Twitter storm.

As ever, red text contains hyper-links that take you to other web-pages where you can find out more. Much of the text in this post is in green for some inexplicable reason known only to Blogger.

My goodness. If any government just put together a number of pretty simple energy-saving actions and kept them going then they could reduce greenhouse gasses a lot.

That is an interesting piece of information. I'll dig on that.
