Speak Up Week of Action for those concerned with Global Warming
- David Warburton MP
- United Kingdom
Join us from 8th-16th October in a Week of Action to celebrate the people, places and things we want to protect from climate change - and make sure MPs feel that love.
We’ll be seeing nature walks, tea parties, classic lobbies, community energy visits and all sorts of other events to start those key conversations about climate change. All this will either involve MPs or be showcased to them, so that politicians see, feel and hear how much their constituents care about what we could lose to climate change.
People all over the UK are organising events in their local areas. In Norton ST Philip & Rode we are collecting names on a petition we will send to our MP David Warburton.Supported by Christian Aid, CAFOD, Oxfam, WWF, Womens Institute, Climate Coalition and many others.

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), 100% of global warming over the last 60 years has been caused by human activity.
The November 2015 UN Climate Conference in Paris resulted in an international agreement to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels; reduce greenhouse emissions; minimize loss and damage associated with adverse climatic events; and help developing countries adapt to climate change. The agreement has yet to be ratified by its signatories and, in the wake of the Brexit vote, there is now concern that the UK government might not uphold its commitments.
If you share our concerns over global warming we ask that you sign this petition in the hope that our government will continue to support the Paris accord. The petition will be handed to our MP, David Warburton, for input to an upcoming parliamentary debate on the subject.
