Climate meeting held in Glossop

A public meeting held in Glossop to promote the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill currently before Parliament saw 100 people attend in person or via Zoom. 

Professor Kevin Anderson told the meeting held at the Central Methodist Church: “The climate does not respond to targets and promises. It only responds to cuts in carbon emissions and the UK is not doing nearly enough.”  

The event organised by High Peak Green New Deal saw a petition launched calling on MP Robert Largan to support the Bill and become the first Conservative MP to ledge his support. 

The Bill, supported by 115 MPs, requires the government to produce a comprehensive plan to reduce CO2 emissions, promote nature-based solutions as well as technological ones and involve a representative Climate Assembly of UK citizens.
