On Thursday the 18th of October New Environmentalist joined forces with its partners from the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition at the Treasury to remind David Cameron and George Osborne that it’s time they start taking our Green Economy seriously! Siobhan, our Communications Manager and Ion, our Founder joined hundreds of other leaders and protesters from campaign groups such as RSPB, Greenpeace, WWF-UK, Friends of the Earth, People & Planet and UNICEF-UK to deliver a joint letter to the prime minister, asking him to show greater support for the UK’s carbon targets, while resisting calls to build more fossil fuel infrastructure. The letters refers in particular to the upcoming passage of the Energy Bill, and the provision to include emissions from international aviation and shipping in the Climate Change Act. Full text of the letter bellow:
