CAFOD Petition Following shock announcements that our government intends to renege on its promises to fight the climate crisis, CAFOD says “the UK is leaving its international reputation in tatters”. They ask us to urge the PM to recommit to policies cutting UK’s greenhouse gas emissions to keep global temperature rise below 1.5C and to recommit to policies supporting people in countries around the world most vulnerable to the impacts of the climate crisis.
The J&P group have put a CAFOD petition at both ends of the church urging Rishi Sunak not to backtrack on climate? Please stop & sIgn – We need to show the PM that we want him to play his part in the fight to care for our common home.
