A campaigning charity has made a call to action. It’s for people to get involved with its lawsuit against the UK government over climate change.
Playing with fire
Plan B is a charity which supports legal action to tackle climate change. The group has previously warned the government that it believes it’s breaching its obligations under the Climate Change Act 2008, and specifically its carbon target for 2050. But the government has ignored Plan B’s requests. So, the charity launched [doc] a bid for a judicial review of the government’s actions. Things are gathering pace, with a hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice on 4 July.
High profile support
As The Canary previously reported, Plan B has already got the support of outgoing Green Party leader Caroline Lucas. But now it wants everyone to have the chance to be involved. It’s organised an event at SOAS University of London, on Saturday 16 June. The free two-hour meeting will include Plan B explaining its case against the government, followed by:
a brief explanation of how you can get involved, show your support and spread the word with the opportunity to network with us, other climate groups and interested people.
When you look at the detail of Plan B’s case, it’s clear just why it considers the government’s action on climate change a ‘failure’.
