Ask the Climate Question....

Just in case you have not noticed there is an election on its way. The upcoming General Election is a major opportunity to show all of those bidding for our votes just how much pressure there is on them to do the right thing. We can  make it clear to our candidates that we want effective action on climate change.
A new national campaign 'Ask the climate question' has been launched and is around asking three big questions to Parliamentary candidates:
  • Will you commit to putting the UK on track to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020, through genuine emissions reductions here in the UK?
  • Will you commit to ensuring at least 15% of all energy comes from renewables by 2020?
  • Will you commit to providing the UK’s fair share of the money that developing countries need to adapt to climate change and develop their economies in a low carbon way – on top of existing overseas aid commitments?
Deal With It will be writing to all the main candidates standing in Dover & Deal  with a survey which will include these questions plus local ones such as the on the local train service. We then will publish their answers here and in the local press. If you have an idea for a question please email us at
