Sue has joined the Climate Coalition’s #ShowTheLove campaign, joining hundreds of thousands of people in Britain showing their support for protecting people, places and lives they love from climate change.
Sue wore a green heart as part of the campaign which celebrates things that could be lost without efforts to tackle climate change – from beaches to bees and cricket to coffee. A recent Climate Coalition report warned that extreme weather is hitting British fruit and vegetable yields.
The Climate Coalition is made up of more than 130 organisations representing over 15 million people, ranging from aid agencies such as CAFOD and Christian Aid to groups such as the Women’s Institute, WWF, RSPB, and the National Trust.
“It’s really important to take a moment to reflect on what could be under threat in our own lives.
“I’m proud to be wearing my green heart and supporting a net zero future before 2050. I want to be part of leaving a legacy for future generations that we can all be proud of.”
“Climate change is already changing Britain. It hits the most vulnerable people, whether that’s very young or elderly people struggling with heatwaves, or those in poor communities overseas affected by a loss of crops or more severe disasters.
“Labour is committed to meeting the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global temperature rises to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius. It’s clear that we need to take urgent action, and that means the Government must set an ambitious target to reduce the emissions which are driving climate change.”
