Climate Emergency Parliament

Campaign against Climate Change


Climate Emergency Parliament


Parliament Square, Wednesday 15th July at 6.00 pm


Our current parliament is failing to respond the Climate Emergency.

We will convene an alternative parliament to respond with the degree of urgency required.


The Bills before Parliament will include measures for


10% reductions in UK Greenhouse gases by the end of 2010

A million Green Jobs and emergency insulation program

Banning all domestic flights by the end of 2010

A 55 mph national speed limit

Halfing (on average) the cost of public transport and terminating the roads program


Come to the Peoples’ Parliament ! All are welcome – just turn up and take your seat ( er….on the pavement)

Hear what we could be doing in the UK now to avert climate catastrophe and bring your own ideas !


The gap between what the science demands and what the politicians are offering is vast – whilst there are signs of faltering political progress (and much greenwash), the updated science gets more scary day by day… See for instance 


Add your voice to the demand for radical action now – we should not just be on the defensive saying ‘no’ to airports, new coal, road building etc.. etc.. we should be pushing forward our own positive agenda for real solutions to the climate crisis !


We in the UK cannot deal with this problem on our own but our best chance of influencing the critical international Climate Talks in Copenhagen at the end of the year is by  committing to really radical measures here in the UK in order to lead in the only effective way we can :by example. And the time to do that is RIGHT NOW
