The governments of more than 190 nations gather in Paris in late November to discuss a global agreement on climate change.
Scientists have warned that unless greenhouse gas emissions start to fall, we will exceed a temperature rise of 2 degrees C above pre-industrial levels. Above this rise, global warming will become catastrophic and irreversible.
However, the UK and other nations with the biggest greenhouse gas emissions are likely to make commitments in Paris that will not be enough to keep the temperature rise within 2 degrees.
We have joined with Sustainable Hayfield in sending letters to our MP, Andrew Bingham, asking him to use his influence in parliament to work towards implementing a greater reduction in CO2 emissions in the UK and a transition from fossil fuels to renewables
Please sign our letter and send or email it to him by 10th December 2015.

We will be in New Mills town centre, on the Prom and in The Torrs Butterfly Café between 10:30 and 12:00 on Saturday 28th November, to ask people to contact Andrew Bingham. If you can help at all with handing out leaflets or staffing the stall, please let us know at email@example.com
There will also be a party going to the Climate Summit event in Sheffield on Saturday afternoon – meet at New Mills Central Station for the 12:17 train.
