Please Act! 'The Time is Now' for climate, nature and people
Dear [insert name of MP]
I am writing to you as one of your many constituents who is concerned about climate change and the environment, and to ask you to take strong action. Unfortunately, I was unable to join the Soil Association to attend the UK’s biggest mass lobby for climate, nature and people ‘The Time Is Now’ on 26th June in Westminster. Did you attend and meet with other constituents from our local area on these important issues?
People across the globe are suffering from the effects of climate change and our wildlife populations are being wiped out. The time is now to end the UK’s contribution to climate change and pass ambitious laws that create a healthier environment for nature and people. These actions need to be taken now, before it is too late. We simply don’t have time to waste.
As a supporter of the Soil Association and their vital work, will you represent me and be part of the solution by asking the government to do the following:
- Build on the commitment to net zero emissions by implementing practical next steps towards a net zero emissions target for the UK and publishing a strong environment bill
- Prioritise climate friendly farming, such as organic, which builds up carbon in the soil and avoids using energy intensive and polluting artificial fertiliser
- Get more trees onto active farmland to lock up carbon while still producing food
- Implement practical advice and support people to move to more sustainable diets that have lower impact on the climate and environment
Thank you for taking the time to consider my views and I look forward to hearing from you.
