Top scientists’ open letter calls for CO2 emissions to be cut by at least 80% by 2050WWF-UK: Get on Board
An open letter to the leaders of the main UK political parties has been published in four national newspapers by four world-class scientists.

Check out the press release from WWF, titled Scientists urge Government: tougher CO2 cuts, which links to the letter.

Top scientists’ open letter calls for CO2 emissions to be cut by at least 80% by 2050

My MP knows about today’s open letter UK Climate Change Bill targets are based on out-of-date science, at least I wrote to highlight it and urged him to please support the need for CO2 emissions reductions of at least 80% by 2050.WWF-UK: Get on Board

I also thanked him for his commitment to our climate challenge. He wrote to me twice about that topic in December 2007, and his attention to this matter is encouraging.

So, if you are one of the 80% or so of UK citizens who expects your government to take a lead on dealing with climate change, why not click on that panda and send your MP a message that this is something you care about too?
