Climate change is a serious and pressing concern. I know that many of us in West Oxfordshire care deeply about our environment. The UK has a leading role to play in tackling climate change. However, this also needs urgent attention from the Governments of the world.
The 2020 Global Climate Change Summit (COP26) will be a crucial moment for the future of our planet. The UK is bidding to host this conference and a decision will be made soon.
I would therefore urge you to sign the petition below so that we can send a clear message to Governments all across the world that the UK is ready to step up and take leadership.
Please sign this petition as soon as you can, and no later than Friday 14th June 2019.
The full text of the petition is as follows:
The petition of the residents of the constituency of Witney and West Oxfordshire,
Declares that climate change is a serious and pressing concern and needs urgent attention from the Governments of the world; further that the UK has a leading role to play on tackling climate change in the future.
The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to ensure the UK hosts the upcoming COP 26 Climate Change Conference in 2020.
And the petitioners remain etc.
